Luftrauser

Luftrauser - Gameplay Video from Rami Ismail on Vimeo.

I've been playing Luftrauser from (not)vlambeer all morning- It's a scrolling shooter with a really great hook- you can cut your thrusters and turn in mid-air to shoot pursuing planes without changing course. Also, you can bounce off the water and the top of the skybox without taking damage, but enemies die. There's something about this game that's super-addictive, and the cool restrained color palette and vaguely fascist chiptune march that serenades you as you play make the whole thing a delightfully well-rounded little time-waster.
