Grand Theft Reality


A chimpanzee, blasting away at an onslaught of asteroids, picking up powerups and avoiding certain death — all while FLYING PAST SATURN LIKE THE CASSINI PROBE ITSELF. What is not to love about this game?

Indeed, it’s making me realize that Flash is producing a renaissance in the lost art of the 2D arcade sidescroller.
