Hey! Thanks for the Daily 4th!

There's no easy fix (well, you could get a faster computer), but the little known [Z] key will toggle the number of particles onscreen. 100%, 50% and 0% are available.

UPDATE: 1/4/09: There's been lots of comments stating that wave 28 is too hard, or even impossible. I never designed it to be such, so I've decreased the number of missiles by 50%. Hope that helps.

Neonium is a defense/shooter hybrid that puts you in control of a tower mounted turret in order to fend off waves on incoming enemies. Use the mouse to aim and fire, and 1-5, Q and W to change weapons.
There is a save file function: however, it is one-time use only, meaning you can't use it to restart on level 30 everytime, but rather to continue playing after you take a break. You must NOT quit by going to the pause screen and pressing Q, as this will clear your save file due to the fact that you can submit a high score twice if this isn't taken into account. The game is auto-saved at the end of every wave.
1-5 and Q,W- Change weapons E-Activate laser (if bought and charged) R-Reload M-Mute/Unmute P-Pause (From here Q quits game) Z-Toggles particles (Full, half and none) Click to fire

Very fun

Challenging, fun and a good time waster. I guess the only foible I had was the lack of a high score log. For that reason, i'm giving you a 9 however everything else was top par.

People find this review helpful!

There is a high score log, you're probably blocking MochiAds or something because I use the MochiAds scoreboard.

I'm really impressed...

I haven't seen a basic shooter this good in a long time. The only thing that bothered me is that up until level 29 it was pretty mundane, but level 30 caught me off guard and I lost all that effort. Add an easy-to-use save/continue feature, kinda like the orginal arcade games. (You know, three continues left until game over?) Your description says you have one, but I don't understand how to recover it.
Aside from that, 9/10.

Excellent idea

I love this style of games, what an excellent idea, well done.

The difficulty was pretty much impossible on Hard and Impossible though, which I can understand for Impossible Mode, but for Hard mode it was just poor.

Also, you couldnt see how much hp you had left on the upgrade menu.
