Kind of an interesting game... a bit hard. I included it in part 1 of my Space Cowboy Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/xNKtVIukzcI

That warp effect! Wonderful game. Would have been really awesome if it the controls weren't so hard.

It's definitely inaccessible, but once I figured it out, it's quite good. I couldn't get past wave 4 because the timer becomes too quick. I think it would be better if the "Learn to Swim" screen were less obtuse, because the game really isn't very difficult, but I couldn't understand the controls until putting in some trial and error with them. The audio was sick and the starfield animation is powerful.

@v21 No worries! I absolutely recognise it's very inaccessible.

Sorry, I bounced off this one. Couldn't figure the controls.

Really fun! The control scheme takes some getting use to for sure, but once you get it the thrill is great.
