Don't be square... 100 Points

Complete arcade mode.

Author Comments

In this game you're the only thing that isn't a square. Needless to say they're all out to get you.

Arcade - Defeat enough henchsquares to lure out the boss. He won't go down so easily... low centre of gravity.
Endless - A never-ending swarm of enemies. Last as long as you can for a high score.

ASDW - Move
Arrow keys - Shoot (press two at once for diagonal shots)
Z - Move on / retry etc. when prompted
P - Toggle sound

This was created within 48 hours for Ludum Dare 26, theme: minimalism. I worked solo on this but it uses some code from Bloody Christmas and as a result turned out quite similar. For this reason and for some uncertainties towards the sounds used (although they are all royalty free, I didn't record them) it was submitted to the 72 hour Jam with the relaxed rules.

Speaking of which, you may have been able to beat the boss in Bloody Christmas but thanks to the minimalist (more so than usual) graphics you won't have lag to help you this time!

this game is a bit boring, graphics isn't good

this is like bloody christmas

The concept is cool, but the game is not very good, it doesn't totally respect minimalism but it's still kinda good. The controls aren't intuitive, and if you don't understand the game in 5 seconds, you're dead.

So, you should add more things, it could make the game better.

I'm not going to rate a game good if I don't control it the way I want, you should atleast make something in which I can change my controls.

the mechanics are kinda weird, the game is very challenging , its a good game over all
