((Power ups))

= eat spinning Plus omino = gain 100 points = regain shield = change shape and color = faster movement speed

= alter shape and color = eat Plus ominos

= player level = per 1000 points

= player level = faster shoot rate = more powerful attacks

= faster movement speed = eat Plus ominos

= shield = decrease when hit by enemies and their attacks = die when 0 = eat Plus ominos to regain shield


= move ULDR = OIEA = DXCV

= rotate = S T = , .

= rotate = player piece = 22.5 degrees = 1/16 of a circle

= autofire = on

= gamepad = d-pad = buttons rotate and start game


= obstacles = rotate piece may help pass thru obstacles

I saw. I conquered. I came.


After playing a thousand times, I feel zen, especially at late game. When the pace rises at breakneck speed, enemies and bullets fly at you at imperceptible quickness and you try to dodge everything. All the while the screen is cluttered with your own attacks. Yet I'm at peace despite the hectic visual bombardment. Surviving happens by itself, simply by non directed attacks and motion.
