Echoes

From Binary Zoo Studios, the tagline says it all: “Now with crack!”

A very fun and challenging stylized shooter, where you use the mouse to move around and WASD to change the direction of firing (which is set to auto-fire by default). You basically just shoot asteroids that break into smaller pieces, and as you increase in level the asteroids get bigger (and fast blue things start appearing).

The health monitoring system is pretty clever, with a circle around your ship (like a forcefield) that gets smaller every time you are hit, and larger when you pick up health. There are also gun upgrades, but from the brief time I have played this game it seems there are only two higher firing rates than baseline. I also hear there are bonuses you can get, but I haven’t looked at the details. Download the zip file here.
