Your goal is to survive for as long as possible! There are also several Achievements to unlock!

Use the mouse to control your pod. Click the left mouse button to use your Push Ability, but note that it needs time to recharge.

I like.

This game is cool. But you should say something about the push ability, I played through the first time without knowing about it. Not really something to spend a long time on, but fun to kill a few minutes if you're bored.

Decent fun

This is a decently fun game, however there is room for some improvement that I can immediately see. First, some nice elements though. I thought the music was implemented rather well, and the background isn't too distracting. The colors for the pods are well visible, a must for the later minutes when things begin to get hectic.

Even though the instructions on how to play are in the description, it should also be more elaborated on in the game itself. "Survive for as long as possible!" can be widely interpreted as evading -or- killing everything on the screen and theres nothing in the actual game instructing me to avoid anything. There should be more instructions available on what the game is about -- also, there's nothing in the game detailing anything of a Push function other than the Newgrounds description; these are the kind of things that have to be covered ingame. The game starts slightly too slow, and I believe around twenty minute should be removed at the start so things ramp up slightly faster. As it is now, it allows people to learn but can be a turn off for people willing to try multiple times having to wait 40 seconds for things requiring skill to become apparent. The things going on at around 20 seconds in should be enough to allow new players to adapt and also encourage multiple tries.

All in all a very simple, efficient time waster.
