Wooooahhhh! Atomic Super Boss

By Kieron Gillen on October 12th, 2009 at 2:43 pm.

While my heart wants to play Borderlands, my poorly head makes me play Atomic Super Boss. It’s actually a webgame port of the freeware Bullet Hell, but with a high score table. You with a boss, who moves through different attack patterns, randomly. You shoot him. The closer you are, the more points you get. Maximise score before he inevitably kills you. Videogame!

    My meagre shmup skills yielded a feeble 1179 on my second go, :( My 11 year old Xenon II playing self would surely be able to whup that score.

    Echoes of RRootage and Warning Forever? It seems we’re slowly generating a new genre of boss shooters.

    I got to 3005 on easy, which put me at the top of the scoreboard, apparently.

    Go me?

    @El Stevo:

    Were you holding down Space? It’s a Flash Thing (or possibly a Certain Keyboards Thing), I think.

    (WASD + Space) *or* (cursor keys + Z) should work ok.

  8. El Stevo says:

    Yeah, WASD works.
