In Kenta Cho’s Flash game Figure of Eight, your objective is to destroy the enemy ships and gather red collectibles for points. There’s no way to control the ship directly as it moves back and forth mimicking the shape of an infinity symbol, but you can always left-click on the game window to make the ship move at a fraction of its original speed.
Slowing down your ship also causes its firepower to be concentrated at a single point, hence making it much easier to defeat some of the larger enemies in the game. Your weapon will return to its default spread shot configuration the moment you release the left mouse button. Scores are uploaded automatically to the online leaderboards, though it’ll take some effort and practice to break into the top ten rankings.
Figure of Eight is available to play at ABA Games’ site.
