pixel: shoot things with chill out music

It's... really easy. Nice music, yes, but not much "game" here.

Yeah, it's just a nice time killer. I am the Pixel Master, however.

People talk a lot about games like Electroplankton and flow being really relaxing, but I'm not sure I agree. You know what's relaxing? Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, that kinda thing. Also sandbox games.

Beat it on the first try. 927068.

I liked it a lot. The combos were very satisfying.

Had to stop half-way through, forgot to blink for 10 minutes.

This feels a lot like bubble tanks, which is a great thing.

Too easy and too short, but it's an inventive game mechanic. And a fine illustration of nuclear fission chain reactions.

Nice game, but I wish there was more to the bonus section. 1000 points is not really much of a goal... Fun though, while it lasted.

Great find! Thanks for sharing. 1057334 on first try with combo of 124!

That was great, thanks!

Your description made it sound like music was the munition, so I was slightly disappointed. Otherwise a fun but easy ride.

I'd like a new wacom pen nib please.

Very fun. I like the look of all the pixel residue when you kill enemies; space dust, if you will. It's easy and a bit short, but I'll play it and throw in my own calming music if the urge strikes me.

Sorry for double post, but it does. In fact, the bonus ship is a bubble tank.

If you liked this, check out Everyday Shooter. The gameplay is similar, but your actions actually influence the soundtrack.

The neon mode and the music are pretty. longer would be cool.

Heh. I also thought neutrons. I also thought about Bolo which had the chain-reaction thing going on, and Asteroids Deluxe. Also Robotron, in the way that stuff happens almost too fast for you to make sense of anything (although Robotron is just deviously difficult)

Oh, man, BOLO? The minute someone makes a browser-based flash multiplayer version of Bolo is the day my productivity dies permanently.
