    I found strange is that if I do not touch anything with more points.

    I mean, just look at the running game.

    Quoted from matthindle

    Sorry @guimaraf I'm not sure what you mean - can you be more specific?

    New version uploaded with some bug fixes and options added.

    In the version I tested, the game gave no chance to test the skill, because the enemy objects, were always very close to the player.
    In short, I could only score well when not playing at all.

    I will test the new version and comment again.

    The game has potential, but so far depends more on luck than skill.

    Thanks guys :) Updated version uploaded.

    Still thinking about how multiplayer would work. What would you like to see? One player controls the yellow sprite, with the other players as drones chasing after them? Or multiple players all avoiding drones?

    guimaraf, thank you for the clarification, but I still can't see the problem. You get score from playing well - from avoiding the enemies, from playing chicken, from getting close to the enemies and from destroying them, either with a bomb or when you have the shield.
