Help! What is the "Greedies" ?!

People of Touch Arcade,

Help tell us what the hell kind of game we just made!
After all these months building the "Greedies", we still have a hard time defining it.
What we know: it’s arcade-ey, it’s both easy, and frustratingly hard at the same time...

Perhaps *you* can weigh in?!

Check the video of the raw gameplay footage here:
Low Rez

And help us define the Greedies!

Just *one* more...

Please, please, PLEASE upload a higher quality video. It extremely difficult to see the game play at all.

I've never been fond of defining genres. It's definitely arcadey. Looks like a puzzle/reaction/action game.

No problems - only situations.

I'll try rendering a higher rez video tonight.
I'm rockin really old gear at home so it makes video editing painfully slow
*IF* you have a PC and are interested in testing a build now, let me know and I will send you a private link

Just *one* more...

Looks like the quintessential arcade game, nice work.

Thanks One Side Software!
So "arcade" will have to go in the description.
For the rest if the gameplay nuances we'll have to get creative.
