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)

Download the stand alone version here /downloads/flash/greymatt
(it runs faster)

-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

A good challenge

As always, Edmund McMillen keeps impressing me! I love your dark humor! I beat the game, it was hard but not impossible. However, Boss Mode was too easy, 99 lives, full upgrades? You just have to beat the boss a second time to unlock Expert Mode. I still need to beat this one though.

*** TIP ***
Something the authors didn't say: you're invincible during a boost. It's a good way to get pass barrages.
