Shrooms. Right. The "engine" itself is rather promising; this is probably mostly a case of lack of content.

doohan says ...

This game is pretty trippy, but it's incredibley hard with a trackpad :)

Sophie Houlden says ...

it looks awesome, though the mouse could de with being a little more sensitive, and some diamonds moved so fast they seemed to go between the bullets.

very promising, and very cool, but needs more work I think :)

Hempuli says ...

I really enjoyed the screen shake effect! x)

Almost says ...

very stylized. pretty sweet.

GBGames says ...

I loved the explanation for how the game came together. The controls are difficult for me, but I'm using a trackpad. It's a trippy game. B-)

Gilvado says ...

Psychedelic. I like it :D. Although it's really hard to hit the damn diamonds.

adam_smasher says ...

Much like Christine Love's game, not as good as the real thing.

badlydrawnrod says ...

Very colourful. You have a distinct style there.

Problem Machine says ...

Very frustrating trying to hit small fast moving things with slow projectiles and low mouse sensitivity. Some nice trippy sounds would have really made it more fun too, I think.

Tenoch says ...

Very cool looks. The gameplay is somewhat limited, however.

Endurion says ...

Weird :)

Wonder what you see when you wake up.

jolle says ...

Psychedelic. But sadly that's about it.

Jonny D says ...

That was hard :O

philomory says ...

The graphics are certainly appropriately trippy, and the gameplay isn't too bad, but I really hate timers in games like this.

noonat says ...

Awesome visuals. Way too hard to actual hit things with the projectiles... mostly had to resort to just spamming the whole vicinity and crossing my fingers.

bburbank says ...

oh my god this is pretty and now my eyes are watering from the color

Entar says ...

I liked how the scene changed color with the mood, depending on if you took a diamond out or got hit by one. Throw in some funky music and you've got a pretty fun game. Only problem was there seemed to be too many enemies (hard to hit) for the time limit.
