Very Nice.Extremely funny and I really liked the graphics.

Llove the CRT graphics! Excellent rendering.

My only gripes:

You cannot play again until you typed your name. There should be an always present "play again" button, not only sometimes present. I did not realize that, and was not bothering with sending highscores. So I thought the "replay" button was to play again, but it was not, I was very confused why it did not respond to my controls but used the old ones in black and white, and thought this was related to some overarching "evil glitch" plot that also involved right click to go back in time but that did nothing, I didn't get it and was on the verge of stopping playing.

Second, when I figured out that you needed to type name, I pressed backspace, but it instead went back to the previous newgrounds page.

:D I have a pinterest board where I chose my glitch references:

Kickass sound, graphics and concept. Asteroids on steroids, BUT WINNERS DON'T USE DRUGS

Great effort. Really difficult for me on the keyboard; controller support would be wonderful. Again, love the glitchy sound... reminds me of Space Invaders for the Atari 2600... like, a lot. :)

Thanks man!
Indeed I put a lot of effort on it, actually it comes from a game jam where the build can only have 13Kilobytes, that's the reason I decided to made it as the old school way.
