Essential Reading

There are many nice books out there, but a few of them contain such wisdom that I just must mention them here:

Defend your sphere of influence against the marauding cubes who are after your only defence against the Red Void : Your 8 rings of protection. Once they are gone, all hope is lost and the game ends. But do not fear, your rings of protection have a powerful defence mechanism. And so the Endless War begins !

The rings defence mechanism take the form of a Triangle with 2 weapon systems:
  1. a Line cannon that eliminates the cubes and feeds their energy into a Ring Factory. Kill 10 cubes of the same color and gain a Ring of Protection. You'll need them !
  2. powerful blast blocks that allow you to remove any squares on the Rings of protection. This only works when the Line cannon is not firing.
Use [Left] and [Right] cursor keys to move and press [Space] to fire your Line cannon. Press [Enter] to start.

Play it online using Java WebStart or download the executable jar file here .
