GRRR this is infuriating(in a good way). very addictive. needs some progression. high score 65.

Simple, frustrating, but good game. I included it in part 2 of my MiniLD 57 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out. :)

Nice variation in the endless genre- I esp. love the way the boss, despite just being an oval, has a great sense of personality from just the colour and speed changes. It seemed really angry when busting about in the red hue, which made me panic. I almost made to 150, although right now it's too difficult to hold the boss back, unless it gets stuck behind some obstacles. Also, could there be some variety or choice in the path? Perhaps higher is easier to navigate but harder to shoot the boss? Power ups of some sort (secondary objectives) might be a worthy addition too.

Short 'n' sweet. I would like some more feedback about what I'm supposed to be doing: am I supposed to be shooting the oval? Dodging it? Just trying to get the farthest?
