A game should either explain it's controls and how it is meant to be played via tutorial or through an easy first level. This game, in and of itself and judged by the information which it provides to the player, is not playable.
After ten minutes of messing around with this I still can't figure out how I'm supposed to play it. There's no tutorial or explanation of the controls and the video on the store page didn't help.
The first time that I clicked "Start" I died three times in the first two seconds before I'd even touched the controls. There's no 3-2-1 count in, you just have to be ready to go the instant you hit start AND there's no pause or reset when you die. The second time I managed to extend that by mashing the WASD keys in a circular pattern but still was not able to figure out how I was supposed to score. Clicking the mouse while holding a WASD key seems to create some kind of beam (yay?) which makes some of the colored shapes get bigger (is this good? Bad?) Either way after twenty seconds or so I'm always typing "WWWAAAAAS" into a "High Score" screen within ten seconds of hitting go.
