On this quiet and endless night, the TETRATON will unleash its potential and attempt to survive this technological challenge where it has to change its weapon module the biggest number of times while being attacked by enemy ships!! WILL THE TETRATON MAKE IT TO THE END?!?!
No it will not. The night is endless.

A shooter inspired from LUFTRAUSERS and Super Crate Box.
'z' and 'x' rotates the TETRATON.
Directional arrows shoot (and propel) in involved direction.
Get to crate ball to change weapon and get a point.

16 different weapons.
Double parallax.
Lots of bullets.
Quick deaths.
Quick retries.
Palette randomization.
Not very good soundtrack but hey I tried.

Post your scores and please do tell me what you think!

Really fun game. I like the idea of the weapon being your propulsion system as well. I've been playing through a lot of your games and am impressed by your aesthetic and creativity. You've given me some inspiration for games of my own.

Thank you, that means a lot!! :)
