A geometry wars clone with the diffuse plot/tagline:
Quote
A third-person shooter set in the future on a 2d plane near you. Be the hero in a story of survival against all odds.

The controls are the mouse + W,A,S,D

This game is similar my first java4k game but much better. There are lot of enemies threatening from everywhere. I think most dangerous are blue boxes which approaching the ship fast and very lethal manner.

Can one upgrade weapon of the ship any way?

Ah thanks, which year is it submitted?

No, you can't upgrade the weapon, it would have been nice though. The fire rate does however increase a little when there are more enemies on screen. Up to a limit of course, had some problems with being able to just stand still and move the mouse in a circle around the ship.
There's also the option of "charging" the bombs by shooting at them.

Personally i hate the purple bastards!

Last year. That was the first occasion when I submited a game in 4k. When I was a child there were few game machine, especially in Hungary. The first game what I played was Asteroids, with monochrome screen and loudy noise effects.

It's really too bad that the controls don't allow to use the arrows to move the ship, as your W, A, S and D are troublesome on my AZERTY keyboard. As a big fan of Geometry Wars and Grid Wars, I feel very frustrated of not being able to try a highscore at your really great remake ! ;-)

There should be support for the arrow keys now.

Thank you for adding the arrow controls, as now your game works perfectly on my computer with Internet Explorer 8. And it is indeed a great and addictive game ! I scored 16 773 300 in 5:29 on my third try with an AZERTY keyboard, and it was as intense as on the original Geometry Wars. But I'm afraid Mickelukas will easily explode my score if he did 14.3 million on his first try !

Great game indeed! The gameplay is very good and animations are very smooth and well done. I'm not too sure that the keyboard to control the ship is the best way but at the same time you have to do with a mouse and keyboard.
