Fight your way through this bullet-hell shooter by rotating left and right or moving closer and farther from the complex motions of the ten bosses. Your laser will wear away their defenses and destroy their weapons, allowing you to grow to match their power.

*Update 5/15/2013*
Players can now pause with <P>, and there is a few seconds of invulnerability at the start of each boss (as well as after each death).

Appreciate the attempt at making something different but you should have brushed up on SHMUPs before attempting to make one. Aside from the presence of bullets, this game lacks many of the important mechanics that make SHMUPs what they are: proper hitboxes and invincibility frames, for example.

No game deserves a half star, at all, unless it is true crap, but the principle of this game is ignoring an extreme rule that should be taken into understanding: Hit boxes.

If the hit box is bigger then my own character, it in it self is an issue of artificial difficulty.
No game should have difficulty based off of artificial.

I wish I knew what my upgrades were.

But the lack of word was some how aesthetic

This game is indeed very beautiful and eye catching. It lacks a few things such as explenation of controls, it took me a while to figure out that I had to use the arrow keys to move around with.

There were no options in the game to switch the sounds and music on and off. There were no explenation of controls and it even lacks a "PLAY" button.

The game had 1 advanced function, and that is that you get multiple lives per stage, and it saves your progress in the individual level ..however, when the last life has been used, you die and loose all progress.

The concept and graphics are really beautiful, so 3 stars for that. I just wish there had been put more thought into this game, because it has potential.

Your hitbox is LARGER than your sprite. That's not how you make a smup. That's not how you make any game, really. Make the hitbox be the shape and size of the sprite, and make the character sprite be more identifiable.
