In a space-capable future Earth, our galactic borders are patrolled by the Laser Speed Force, a global collective of pilots whose task is to protect and serve the denizens of the planet from whatever threats the universe might offer.
On a routine scouting mission, one young cadet is unlucky enough for the ship's boosters to fail, forcing the craft to bob around in space like a pinball. No big deal, rescue and pick-up will be on their way soon. But wait... what's that, on the scanner? Is that broken, too?
No... no, it's not. It's danger. A vast swarm of danger. Hundreds of thousands of dangerous... THINGS.
You, young cadet, must make a stand. Your ship is damaged, help could be a thousand miles away, and a threat is bearing down on the Earth. This is your defining moment.
Make it count.
Blimey, that's a bit dramatic, isn't it? Anyway, you might need a pretty high-end device to run this, because there's a lot of particles flying about the place.
'Laser Speed Force' is a difficult (I suppose impossible) on-rails top-down shooter, based on a song by my favourite band, Machinae Supremacy. It's got that whole 'glowy' retro thing going on, and an awesome 80's style soundtrack by Ben White/scutheotaku.
It's fast-paced, challenging (downright hard, if I'm honest) and, if you're anything like me, compellingly addictive.
First version, please let me know if you encounter any game-breaking bugs.
