The definition of "one more try!" gameplay. Like some kind of super addictive cross between Super Hexagon and the usual avoid-em-ups such as SkyRoad or Race the Sun, the gameplay is super easy to get into but quickly ramps up into pure chaos making mastering this game a serious challenge. Every theme and difficulty has an Endless mode with live leaderboards to show you where you place in the world, and a campaign mode with achievements to keep track of your progress.

This is a must for fans of quick, colorful and fun pick up and play arcade games.

Aptly named! High speed techno-blaring arcade racer. Only a few types of hazards, pitfalls, walls, missles, and moving left-right orb-walls.

Power ups? They instantly work, you can't save them for a tasteful time later. Fits in with the high-speed arcade gameplay.

If you like the oldie Skyroads, or the remake Tasty Static (highly reccomended, both are free, google em!) You'll feel comfortable here, though it's a set pace, and you can't jump, it still provides a feeling of staisfaction the further you get on endless, or beating a particularly hard level on the normal levels.

Waiting on a level-editor, if not mods too.

Playing only a bit of it, the game is somewhat addictive. The soundtrack is amazing for this game. It's more or less an endurance run, grab a shield to avoid hitting walls and bullets, but also avoid the holes on the floor that end the game. The longer you stay, the more points you have. Other than that, there isn't much more. Multipliers do help.

And I'm sure once this game builds a big enough audience, my name won't be on the high score board. (I'm kinda bad at video games)

This game is fun. Colorful, nice music, and interesting levels.

Kind of a Race the Sun meets Super Hexagon.

fun little game and definatly worth the small price. challenging levels that will make you want to keep retrying and a endless mode to see how far you can get. if you've got a bit of spare change, pick this game up
