finefin's comments:
We are proud to present our latest game



this one-level shmup hell will get your adrenaline pumping.
as you fly through space and shoot endless waves of alien scum,
the multiplier climbs up and boosts your score.
With every kill the game gets faster. And faster. And FASTER!
In fact, this is one of the fastest shmups out there!

Take a look at the trailer. It has aliens!

I'm always running into the objects because there is no way to control firing. So I Squeeze in front of an oncoming object and just pray it fires? I thought maybe it would fire as soon as the last bullet disappeared but it seems like it just fires one every 1.5 seconds or something. Sorry, I love the looks but you need to speed up the firing.

CygnetSeven,
sometimes you have to dodge an enemy - aim for the next one.
your autofire will speed up with more kills.
the real fun starts, when your multiplier is around x50

I guess I'll have to add a help screen in one of the next updates...

Okay so I played a bit longer and it makes more sense to me now. If you shoot something your multiplier goes up, as does the difficulty, when you have to dodge your multiplier goes down. Get hit and you drop considerably. The last time I played I got somewhere between 55-60. What a rush, that was pretty fun, thanks for explaining.
