Use the arrow keys to move around and avoid EVERYTHING! New enemies will keep appearing, and you've gotta dodge them all. You do get a health bar for 3 hits to keep from dying too fast at least... How long will you survive? Can you go a full 90 seconds???

This game was created for the Experimental Gameplay Feb 2011 challenge: ASCII. I actually made it in 6 hours! If it gets any kind of plays at all, or you see even a glimmer of fun in it, I'm planning a much better version (to fulfill the whole one-week challenge to Experimental Gameplay), where you can return fire, fight multiple enemies, play with multiple difficulties (bigger versions of Squareface) and the like. It'd be called ASCIIvader 2: Revenge is a Dish Best Served Square.

Not an Original game,

But an Original presentation. I enjoy playing this. I think I just got myself a new game to play out of pure boredom. Great fun!

Thank you very much!! I appreciate your kind words greatly :)

Messed up controls?

I like it, but my character keeps on moving to the right of the screen randomly, followed by quick death. -.-

CataclysmicKnight responds:

Very odd! Does this happen only when you let go of the arrows, or does it happen during all of play? I appreciate the bug reporting :) And I'm glad you otherwise liked it!
