A demake of geometry war

Just redo the first game I program for fun. It's currently 2106 bytes so I still got space but don't know if I have much time Sad

Well it's my first entry in the 4k competition Smiley

Control :
- left mouse button = shoot
- arrow key = move

Game link :

N.B. : I just link to the site of Riven so not sure how long the game will stay up. Btw, thx Riven for your awesome tool. I was trying to reduce the size of my 10k class file with dumb optimization until I decide to use your tool. Now it's 2k!!!

Good. more and more games join in

With the remaining space you could add some extra elements, like pickups taht are used instantly.
-flashbang, make all "bad circles" explode.
-life pickup
-slowdown (bullettime, 20% speed for 5 seconds)
-weapon-speed bonus.

Also for the keys: its good to have here the cursor key + WASD as alternatives.
Since WASD+Mouse fits best for right-handers.

Great game but I agree with Damocles that Arrow Keys + Mouse is really awkward. WASD + Mouse would be best here.

Do you reupload the game (or the source)?
