Hey, Adrenaline is a cool looking arcade shooter inspired by the great game Geometry Wars. My game features 9 types of enemies, several upgrades and cool looking neon graphics.

Using Classic Powerups And Enemies To Make a similar game borders on plagiarism, but the game you have produced is almost flawless. It involves the classic enemies, but other features like the buying screen for powerups and addons is a good concept for the game.

Although the game draws concepts from Geometry Wars it is still very worthy of a high score for compiling it in Flash. The graphics are well drawn and the trailing effects add to the game's charm. It deserves an overall 8/10. Perhaps in a future release you could include a mute button to stop the sounds, and maybe add more creative enemies and a larger playing screen.


similar to geometry wars, but to be honest, main problem was the lack of difficulty. That and the game could use another song for gameplay, the same one gets old after 20 rounds or so, XD

A decent effort...

It is, indeed, a decent game in its own standards. However, as so closely related to Geometry Wars, it lacks what makes Geometry Wars so addicting. The game is too slow-paced in the beginning and can divert away players. It still holds true that the game becomes frantic, but perhaps it's too closely related to Geometry Wars. On top of all this, the enemy spawns very quickly, which makes it difficult for the player in the beginning.
This game is, in no means, bad. It's just not as fast-paced and interesting as the game it takes after. I suppose it is a free replacement for Geometry Wars, however, it doesn't bring much to the table in the form of a flash game.

However, what you DID accomplish was recreating the game in a less-flashy manner but still a decent redo.

Nothing new

The gameplay is simple and intuitive, and the game has no lag, but it is not interesting. The game is totally cliché, with an overused formula. The graphics are not bad, but nor beautiful. The music is nothing new and doesn't flow well with the game. It really doesn't catch the gamer into playing it.


Nice adaptation on the classic geometry wars. A few problems. You can see some of the enemy's spawning onto the game. And a major problem for me. the game slowed down so much because i have a crap computer :)
