A 16-bit chiptune rhythm game with original music, all made in 72 hours.


  • You are a square.
  • Other squares attack you.
  • Press arrow keys in directions of the attackers to defend.
  • Don't click too late or too soon – failed attack costs you points.
  • You get points for every successful defence.
  • The more precise your timing is, the more points you get.
  • Get as many points as you can.

Thought processes:

a small world -> needs protection -> fend off attacks from all directions

world -> word == 16 bits -> retro-styled game
