A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Move with the arrow keys. Press and hold Z to cut out an area around enemy space ships, any enemies inside the cutout will die when you let go of Z. Score increases with time and you get a bonus for every enemy you kill.

(If your cut out intersects itself, it doesn't count)

Limitations chosen:

  • Resolution: 160x144 (gameboy)
  • Color: 2 bit (gameboy palette)
  • Sounds: 4 channels
  • Input: directional + 1 button
