A lone tetrahedron must battle an endless onslaught of cubes, spirals, corkscrews and other procedurally-generated abstract shapes as it descends through glowing cylindrical level portals and collects cross-shaped multipliers – all in sixty seconds. By creating chains of destruction the tetrahedron earns the CHAIN MULTIPLIER, causing cascading damage as exploding enemies in turn blow up more enemies!

sixty second shooter is an homage to arcade classics such as Asteroids, Space Duel, Robotron,and  Missile Command, given an abstract glowing 3D look and a sixty-second game-time limit that’ll have you saying, “Just one more game…,” over and over.

sixty second shooter was the unheralded first game to use Chrome’s Native Client and OpenGL to bring a high-framerate 3D experience to the browser – it’s a hidden gem in the Chrome Web Store.

The game is free-to-play. It is ad supported, but players can pay to buy extra energy for temporary upgrades and permanently suppress the ads. The temporary upgrades give an advantage in the game, but player skill is more important, and bonus free energy is given out every day.
