Cactus! Cactus! You wicked alchemist, you mercurial son of a bitch! You're too fucking good!
This is a shmup made in 12 hours that can be played in a minute. It's the latest in a long series of shmups made by this prickly, lone genius that takes a tired genre and deconstructs it with the delicate care of a surgeon back by generous morphine. Have you ever tried morphine? I worked at a hospital one summer... that first minute, its like this game.
Spare graphics, vector-drawn, black and white shapes. You can attack weakly with the Z key at a constant, metronomic beat, but bombs and defense only work every few seconds. You end up playing DDR with your fingers while dodging bullets. Imagine Everyday Shooter pared down to the base concept. Bueno.
