Mu-cade: The Physics Centipede Invasion » Fun-Motion Physics Games

Mu-cade is a new shoot-em-up by the master of shmups, Kenta Cho of ABA Games. He pitches his game as a “smashup waggly shmup”, which is, by itself, reason enough to check it out. With Mu-cade, Kenta has introduced physics into his formula of hardcore shooting games. The result is a great physics game (even if it will kick your ass in five minutes or less).

Your only goal in this "kamikaze shooter" is to blow yourself up at the optimal moment to destroy the highest number of color blocks.
