Rad Rocket is a simple avoid and shoot game.

It was the first game I built that had a clear beginning and end. While it has some bugs, the folks I shared it with enjoyed the minimal design and completion speed.

I learned a heck of a lot with it, and I've now made it available more generally as a HTML5 game you can play in your browser - it works on mobile devices too!

An Android build is also available should you wish to download and install it.
