Note: while we're aware that Unity 5 can export to WebGL, our last attempt at creating one had some broken audio. The Unity webplayer also happens to have visual glitches as well (namely, the credits doesn't actually show the credits), but is a far more enjoyable experience. We apologize for the inconvenience.

It was an ok experience, it would have been better if you had more control over your drill than change target, move slightly to dodge, and attack, and if the perspective wasn't put out of eligibility so easily with that target reticle being right in relation to the location of the camera but wrong in relation to how it shows on screen.

the look of the game and the feel of drilling through space was great though, it was just hard to enjoy while feeling sto restricted (in space no less).

I like challenging games like this, it keeps me on my toes


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

some parts in the game made me feel like I was on acid but other then that it was quite interesting


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Graphics look awesome! The controls are a bit irritating, after a while I didn't knew if I was going forward or backward. Music and sounds were cool. All in all, pretty good entry, I guess.


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Graphics during the drill cause eye strain and a sense of nausea causing me to have to stop playing to prevent me getting ill or hurt from it.
