Pro tips for everyone.

You can get Chain of 1700+ by not collecting any pixels. ( level )
Because each time you level up , the enemies level up too.
So if you stay on lowest levels , you can kill infinite enemies and gain massive score because of the chain and get 1700+ chains.

Also by chain it means killing x enemies without being hit , not killing x enemies as fast as possible.

visually compelling, fairly addictive

but the game seems impossible to beat, there's simply too much going onscreen

just see

great game overall,only with the big number of enemies,, it get kinda messy
great graphics, sound fits action, great job on that to,
and i still wonder,,, if this is the "sector for 1 ship" what would a whole legion of these be like?


This should be on XBox's Indy Games collection! Great game!

How many of you were just like "PHEW" after getting a level up when your health is right on the edge?

I love this kind of game, and I really enjoyed this one. The effects are nice, the music fitting and the enemies fun and varied. One design issue I noticed is that enemies seem to level up with you, which makes for a very interesting meta-game but also undermines that part of the game.

When I played, I did everything I could to actually avoid the pixels! I often opted not to go for a powerup because there were too many pixels in the way. Also, the "more pixels"-powerup seems pretty silly since it will speed up the increase in difficulty, but not power you up. If the difficulty increase was timer-based, I would probably enjoy this game even more, as I actually like to level. :)
