Use your knowledge and experience to come up with a design that will really test challengers to their limits. You can bet that anything goes for those looking to be the best platform-jumper out there!

Ring-a-ring-a-roses, there's an alien full of explosives. Swing clockwise and counter-clockwise in order to avoid anything the alien beams your way. Your spacecraft will automatically fire back, as you attempt to blast its menacing smile off the edge of the universe.

Simply tap on the left or right hand side of the screen to have your rocket veer in the corresponding direction. Your goal is to use those quick-reactions to dodge incoming pellets and weapons alike for as long as possible. The retro three color graphics are reminiscent of the arcade classic Space Invaders!

▲ Beware the not so delectable space-squids! Swing left and right out of harms way while relentlessly firing at the boss.

▲ The firepower will come at you in different shapes, sizes, and patterns, so keep your fingers poised!

▲ Extra, extra, tweet all about it! Blast holes in your previous records, share the news, and buckle up for another round!

The simple controls will have you weaving between enemy fire in moments. But be careful, even a slight lapse of focus can result in your rocket getting zapped, destined to drift around space for the rest of eternity. So if you feel cranked up for a casual space adventure, board the rocket and prepare yourself for a blast!
