Pilot your magnetic ship through waves of deadly enemies in this vibrant and explosive space shooter inspired by classic arcade games. Using your ship's magno-drive, use your deactivated foes as both weapons and armor in just about any configuration you can imagine -- but know that you can lose them just as quickly as you gain them. Frantically adapt to the many enemy ship types, ranging from missile launchers to laser swords, and blast your way to victory!

A few people mentioned that the quick-slash attack looked like it wasn't very hard to dodge. So I went and fixed that.

The slash lines are now weighted toward the screen's center a bit more, there are 4 more slashes, and it all goes 25% faster.

Dear god.


Also, a sword boss wouldn't be complete without a spinny attack:


All that's left now is to tie the attack sequences together and put in an outro animation. After that, I think it's finally time to address the controls... Stay tuned for another post on that matter.
