Three powerups and five enemy types. Enemy waves come in the same order every run. One hit and you're dead.

Mandatory mouse controls – no gamepad or keyboard supported, even in menus.

In other words, the definition of a $0.19 game. And hey, it could have been a decent $0.19 game, it controls smoothly enough and the music's pretty good...

Except for one problem. There’s a timing bug, striking about once every ten runs, which will cause you to simply die for no reason. Many people have complained, and video evidence of the bug has been recorded. The developer is well aware of it. But the developer will not fix it, saying that it is too hard to fix and that the game is done. In a game that touts itself as a hardcore precision shooter, and especially one so simple and featureless, I think a random death bug is unacceptable.

Also, the last 25% of achievements are extremely long and grindy, and will repeatedly pit you against the random death bug if you try to aim for them.

Recommend avoiding this one.

This geame really could benefit from SteamLeaderboards. Local and world-highscores should be shown INGAME.
Seriously! Highscores are the only reason to play this. Why do they even show a number everytime you die, when you get nothing to compare it to? I would give the game a positive review if the developers change this. But when you look in the forums it seems that they just abandoned this.

I recommend this game but only for 1$. Paying anything more is overpricing. The game is fun for couple of hours, then you might play it but for few minutes every day. Extra fun is if you have someone at home to compete with in scores, then I would say 2$ would be adequate

Thats it? Really? This can't even be classified as a shoot-em-up, as you dont even get to control the shooting. It's more like "dodge the stuff unti you die". Actually, thats EXACTLY what it is. Don't both with this one, folks. There are flash games with more depth.

I can describe this game in one word. Overpriced.
