How to Play

In this game you are trying to protect the energy core which is the source of your ship's power.  If any weapons or enemies collide with the core, it absorbs more energy and grows larger.  If it absorbs too much energy, it will explode and destroy the galaxy!  Place your ship inside the energy auras to drain energy from the core and recharge your ship. Pick up the upgrade orbs left behind by destroyed enemies to upgrade your ship and weapon systems.

You will need a controller to properly play this release and you'll need to use your mouse to click inside the game window to give your controller access.  The game supports up to four players locally!
