Ever wondered what's at the centre of the Earth? Turns out it's nothing! You just keep falling endlessly. At least that's what happens in this scrolling shooter anyway. Dive down a chasm into the unknown, blasting or dodging anything seeking to stop your descent.

Might behave a bit strange in Safari browsers.

Any suggestions, bug reports, or other feedback is much appreciated.

I really enjoyed this game! it felt very nice and polished and I enjoy hitting space to jump at the start, though the character you play as could have had a falling animation and when you shoot sfx after every shoot would be nice instead of just one sound when you begin to hold.

Jordio94 responds:

Glad you enjoyed it! And yeah, the character could have probably done with a few more animations and sounds to make her feel more alive. Thanks for playing!
