A downloadable game

This is a tiny shoot-em-up game, made in 1 day for GBJAM 5 ... so don't expect too much :)

The game is inspired by the DOS game Betamax from 1997.

You will have to fend off endless waves of 4 randomly selected enemies. With each wave the enemies will get stronger and move faster, but your ship will also gain more power or speed after every few waves.

Good luck!
