Within an isometric dimension of darkness and fluorescence lives a brood of “light children” who have been separated from their mother. It is up to you to take control of their combined body of tiny particles, defeat the enemies of corrupted light, and reunite this luminous family!

Tap anywhere on the grid to move there, and collect weapons by moving through the colored squares. Waves of enemies emerge from the red markers – hold down on the screen and swipe in different directions to aim, then release to shoot. Complete each level by eliminating all the enemies and the bases they come from!

▲ The amount of light particles you have remaining is shown on the upper-right.

▲ Evade your attackers in “Endless Mode” using skill and strategy. Your current score can be found on the bottom-left!

▲ Each level of the main mode can be previewed from the map screen, and become highlighted upon unlocking.

Aside from the single shot, a variety of light weapons can be discovered including the multi-shot that can eliminate bigger groups of enemies quickly. One thing to keep in mind – each shot thrown takes away portions of your own particles. The level will end if all of your particles are depleted by enemies, obstacles or shooting, so make every move count!

If you think that you have got what it takes, try your hand at the “Endless Mode” accessible from the home screen. Here, instead of level-based gameplay, you are thrown into a battlefield with nonstop droves of incoming opponents. Keep your wits about you, and try to survive the onslaught in order to get the best score and beat others on the leaderboard!
