For any action video game, I imagine a list of parameters that qualify it as such. Those parameters are:

* A constant state of fear and anticipation
* A feeling of control or power
* Ease of understanding
* Pacing that matches the player's skill

Imagine a game in which the player controls a missile but only has control over the steering and has to hit a specific target and not anything else. When you simplify the gameplay elements, you are left with the Steeplechase Atari game. When you simplify it even further, you get a cursor that moves from left to right, requiring you to push a button when it lines up with the X. This is that game.

To anyone commenting below: This game is not made for your entertainment. It is the opposite of entertainment. It is educational.

The instructions were really poorly written. Simply, click the screen when the cursor lines up with the X. An ok time waster, I got to level 11.

fun but getting game over is too easy. could you maybe put in some chances to continue the game? some sort of restore point for the character that's limited to a certain amount of units until the player runs out of said units. if only we knew what to call this groundbreaking idea.

I didn't get it at first,but when I did, I loved it; Super addicting and a fun retro throwback.
