Grey matter is an anti shooter, or a shooter without bullets.

Essentially your the bullet.

Run into the exposed brains of incoming attackers to destroy them.

Killing 3 of the same type of enemy will cause a "Trinity attack" killing everything inside it.

Avoid enemy dangers (flashing bullets, tails, teeth and lazers)

-You can upgrade at any time in game by pressing P or Esc to pause the game.

-Shields are most important and should be purchased first.

-Holding shift will not only slow you down for better control, but it will also extend, and speed up your options that spin around you.

-Trinity Attacks will increase your chain multiplier which gives you more points for upgrades

All the rest of the info is in game
