How to Play

  • Shoot enemies to score points. Kill an entire wave of enemies for a large points bonus.
  • Hitting enemies and blocking bullets with your drones increases your Efficiency. Missed shots decrease it.
  • When you fill your Efficiency meter you gain a level and are awarded an additional drone.
  • Detonate your drones to destroy large enemies quickly for a higher score.

There is only 1 level. This is the first game I programmed myself, it was made in about 6 weeks.
