***As someone in the reviews suggested (thanks!), I added pause support. I was afraid it'd put me over the 30Kb mark, but lo and behold, just barely made it.***

***I guess some people are missin' the point... of course this isn't an original concept for a game, I've got a game just like it on my 2600. What is original is it's filesize (<30Kb... smaller than your average JPG). But, trash it if you must. I only spent a nite on it :)***

Well, I was gonna stay up all night long and work on Spindle 2, but gotta totally sidetracked with making this... a fast-paced space shooter that you can tuck into a preload sequence, complete with some cheesey sounds. As 99K proved, good flash don't gotta be big. And even that one was a mammoth in comparison.

Soon I plan to have a website full of Flash game tutorials, where I'll pour over every inch of this script in detail, as well as keep a log of programming Spindle and whatever else I'm doing.

Until then, dig it small!!

**I almost forgot! Late last night, unclemike put the idea of a tiny preloader space shooter in my head. Today, it is finished. Thanks for presenting the challenge to begin with!**

really easy but very wellmade and gr8 file size

"ive played all your games their gr8"

TOO easy.

Not bad, i guess, but ive seenhundreds of games just like this one, and they just get boring.


I have to agree with kain, it's really easy. I got to about 2 million, but stopped because my wrist was hurting. All around, a good a game not even considering file size.


This game's FAR too easy, I got a score of 274900 without even hitting a score multiplier, nonetheless, great for a 30k fighter, Vote 5!


It was kinda fun, but I've played many games like this one before. Though I can't deny that it made me want to play it alot.

...But the feeling passed when I passed the 1 mil points mark :P
