My rating: I love the simple aspect of just shoot em up games like this. The name of the game is the game, you move with the recoil of your gun and shoot black alien creatures swarming you from every direction. It's a fun short game, but I wouldn't call it super challenging. A difficulty setting would make it interesting. I felt only a little challenge with the default game. Overall: Fun time-waster.

A simple game, perhaps, but there's an elegance to its simplicity! No bloatedness, everything does its job well~ The difficulty could use some work, though... When enemies die in one hit and health pickups staying on screen until you take/shoot them, it's very easy to find a place to camp and rack up the points with little to no risk~ Otherwise, this game has a lot of promise!
