    Well, the Bad Guys are up to their old tricks again! It is your job to stop them! Just kidding. You don't stand a chance.

    Omium is a two player shooter where one player controls the ship while the other attempts to blow up the previously mentioned ship with the almighty BAD GUYS.

    Take turns controlling the pitiful ship while your powerful opponent unleashes hordes of Bad Guys raining down the screen.

    3 Game Modes

    Dodge - Don't let a Bad Guy touch your ship Captain, or it is Game Over.

    Juggle - Don't let a Bad Guy touch the bottom of the screen Captain, or all hope is lost.

    Infinite - They just won't stop! Every enemy that reaches the bottom of the screen instantly warps to the top again. You better shoot em fast Captain!

    I don't want to spoil the ending... but the Bad Guys made me: YOU CANNOT WIN, you can only hope to last longer than the your worthy adversary. Good luck!

    One thing is for sure, Omium is a telling experiment in shoot-em-up games.

    Omium is as much fun as you make it, as the idea behind the game is that players take turns playing as each side to see how long they can survive.

    The biggest problem with Omium is that there really isn't any way for the player controlling the ship to win; he can just survive until the player controlling the baddies manages to finally take him down with a lucky toss.

    Omium is a multiplayer-only shooter that needs a single player option and better score tracking to prevail.

    The presence of three subtly different modes (Dodge, Juggle and Infinite) twists the rules a touch, but its lustre soon diminishes. What you're left with is the skeleton of a cute idea, but for the price, that's probably fair enough.
