Putting it simply, this is a bullet hell shooter.

Features:

Procedurally generated enemies:
All the enemy sprites are generated in code, meaning millions of possible baddie images, every game looks different.

Random soundtrack:
By combining 11 drum and bass tracks the in-game soundtrack varies every level.

Evolution path:
The core of the game. Each path provides a unique power-up, giving the player multiple options and ways to play through the game.

Go complete those challenges and earn those medals. Enjoy the destruction.

<Edit - Thanks to everyone whose taken the time to play, vote and review the game. You've all made me warm and fuzzy you know, "downstairs" >

V1.1:
This update may take a little while to filter through the system, it's only minor amends, so if you're stuck playing plain old v1.0 you're not really missing much.
- Hi-Score text made smaller, as ZeoTerraBladeOmega broke it with his early epic score.
- Bug with certain challenges going over their max value should be fixed, thanks to Yatsufusa.
- On game complete your score is submitted automatically, thanks FoldingDuckling for pointing that out.

a clever and addictive game

you see its little things like using the dissorienting background and loud music to add to the difficulty that i love about this game! but the only reason that this got a nine was because only a few minutes into the game it becomes more about dodging bullets and somehow still end up destroying almost all of the ships coming at you. im looking forward to more games by this artist and more games of this genre. good game all in all 5/5 9/10

Simple Things Can Be Mindblowing

Such as the realization that the little colored arcs weren't background decoration, but giving you a heads up on the path enemy ships will be taking. Very nice.

Of course, one nitpicky problem is that there is no back button if you click the wrong level like some kind of moron... Such as me... God I'm so ashamed (fortunately, pod spiral shots worked out just fine).

I owe those side pods blocking shots my multiple lives. My only game over was because I got greedy trying to get scratches from huge clusters that could blast away all my shields at once... And I kept doing it.

As for all the people talking about 'open up the screen', I've never played any of the "Real" bullet hells so maybe it's more important in those? Screen size was fine to me, but then I'm way to paranoid about where ships normally come from in shooters to ever go to the TOP of the screen. Though, there were a few times I wished my RedRum and Shield bars were not blocking my view when hanging out at the bottom of the screen.

Of course, the fact I don't play any of those "Real" Bullet hells are probably why I felt the difficulty was just right. Enough to make me pay attention and hold a healthy respect for the bullets I'm trying to mooch extra lives off of, but not enough to make me want to stop playing after a 10 minute long seizure inducing bossfight.

Love your review ( And not just 'cause of the 10 ), thank you mate.
This game was always targeted at players who kinda like the look of bullet hell shooters, but are put off because they're just mentally difficult.

To know I've got it right for you makes me feel I've got it right for a lot more players, and that's what its all about. Giving people 15 mins of mindless shooting fun.

Thanks.
