Timewaster: Boss Rush!

Free shoot ’em up Boss Rush! turns the tables, and puts you in control of a huge end of level boss, fighting annoyingly small and agile spacecraft that are hell-bent on your destruction.

Controlling the boss is an exercise in multitasking – you have to move, with the cursor keys or WASD, aim and shoot with the mouse, while setting off powerful special attacks with the number keys 1 to 4. It really gives you a fresh perspective on shoot ’em ups – maybe next time you play R-Type, you’ll go easy on the bosses. They have a tough job!

The graphics are stylish and minimalist – they look cool. Of course, it would be nice to be able to pilot more classically styled shmup bosses, but you can’t have everything!

Check out Boss Rush! here. Requires Flash.
