Strange little beast this. It's the closest to an endless runner/highscorer I've seen in a shmup.

You have a stationary boss that you shoot to damage, each hit increasing your score by 1. Every few shots changes its firing pattern, adding homing missiles, larger spreads etc. There's not a huge amount more to it really, but then that could be said of most highscorers.

It's simple and most likely not for genre purists but I'm having a bit of fun with it so far. Twitch avoidance stripped of all distractions, aesthetic or otherwise, but retaining the typical high difficulty. Enjoyably plain but the core idea is quite interesting.
