Looks interesting but I can't tell what, if anything, there is to do besides "draw" over enemies.

The masked guy is exceedingly creepy.

Save your sheep and get the best score in the world

The scoring system is reasonably deep, so as you get better and understand it, you can get insane scores!

It's all about timing One ship explodes another, causing chains. The bigger the uninterrupted chain, the more bonus points!

He's a strange one, for sure! He's currently top of the leaderboard with an aneurysm inducing 31 million!

Weird masked Sheep-Man is still top o' the high score charts for the Main Game, but there's some new contenders coming in now!

It's the most fun you can get for 69p since Tescos reduced those big loaves of bread and I went around all day with bread shoes.
