Putting it simply, this is a bullet hell shooter.


Procedurally generated enemies:
All the enemy sprites are generated in code, meaning millions of possible baddie images, every game looks different.

Random soundtrack:
By combining 11 drum and bass tracks the in-game soundtrack varies every level.

Evolution path:
The core of the game. Each path provides a unique power-up, giving the player multiple options and ways to play through the game.

Go complete those challenges and earn those medals. Enjoy the destruction.

<Edit - Thanks to everyone whose taken the time to play, vote and review the game. You've all made me warm and fuzzy you know, "downstairs" >

This update may take a little while to filter through the system, it's only minor amends, so if you're stuck playing plain old v1.0 you're not really missing much.
- Hi-Score text made smaller, as ZeoTerraBladeOmega broke it with his early epic score.
- Bug with certain challenges going over their max value should be fixed, thanks to Yatsufusa.
- On game complete your score is submitted automatically, thanks FoldingDuckling for pointing that out.

DN8 is a very simple and good game. The beginning starts out slow like usual games but grows and increases difficulty more into the game.
It isn't great though.
There aren't any real problems but I just seem to loose interest while playing.
The upgrades are okay but really don't change the whole gameplay it's pretty much the same thing.
But don't get me wrong here I still like the game,Just doesn't grab my attention.

Squize responds:

Thanks for the review mate.
It's my game and I'd rate it a 7/8 too, its just meant to be a fun throwaway thing, if people get 15-20mins of fun out of it then I think its done its job, its nothing more than that.

Hmm, you can tell I don't work in marketing :)

This game isn't called bullet hell for nothing. Love the pace. A game worth playing.

Squize responds:

Cheers mate, glad you liked it ( I thought this game would be lost in NG limbo by now ).

My eyes are bleeding

This is a great bullet hell, very addictive, all i have to say besides that, is that i think people should try this game with a track ball mouse, i did, and now i wanna play centipede, nice game beat it fair, great job!

People find this review helpful!
Squize responds:

I bet its great with a track ball ( I didn't even know they still existed ).
Mate, forget Centipede, have some Marble Madness with that mouse :)

Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks a lot for taking the time to review it.
