While waiting for Steam to Greenlight the game, we decided to make a mobile version. It has a direction pad that you can move around the screen. You double tap the screen (off of the DPad) to shoot your laser.

Story:
A band of aliens lead by the careless Prince FaceBox have invaded the future city of Nucleusport, bombarding it with radioactive waste from their own polluted planet. Only one man has the tech and the cojones to fight back. Take on the role of Doc DuBrane and wield his super-powerful Prisma Cannon in this endless arcade-style shooter. Absorb the radiation dropped by the alien ships and fire it right back in their stupid faces.

Radical Spectrum is a classically-inspired arcade game with infinitely increasing speed and difficulty, featuring a unique color-collecting mechanic that adds a light puzzle element. It will require you to focus your attention on multiple things at once, as the bottom of the screen becomes an ever-changing and increasingly difficult bullet-hell landscape, while the ultimate goal keeps flying around the top of the screen. And don't forget about the deadly black radiation coursing through the grid. One drop of that and the whole place is toast.

More Info:
The game is a retro-arcade style with pixelart graphics. This is the first game in the series (hence Volume 1).

It is not something I would like, but I bought it anyway :)
It is something made with Stencyl!

But I have no idea how to play it :(
The story didn't help.

That is very true. No tutorial and no real instructions :D

Tap the screen to get the DPad to appear. Collect the same colored radiation (i.e. 3 greens). When the meter is full at the bottom, double tap to fire. You want to break through the grid to hit the alien ship, but you also need to prevent black radiation from touching the bottom.

Ah Thanks! That helped.

Not that I'm good at it but I'm not your target audience!

Hope it does well for all of you!
