Geometry Wars is a 2D arcade style shooter created by Bizarre Creations.
The goal in Geometry Wars is to survive as many enemies as you can while earning points along the way. The more enemies you kill without dying, the higher the score multiplier goes. If you ever find yourself surrounded you can use a bomb to wipe the screen of enemies.
