Game:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/idnlbhjpainpnikdjnmcmiaombhhchkg

A lone tetrahedron must battle an endless onslaught of cubes,
spirals, corkscrews and other procedurally-generated abstract
shapes as it descends through glowing cylindrical level portals and
collects cross-shaped multipliers – all in sixty seconds. By
creating chains of destruction the tetrahedron earns the CHAIN
MULTIPLIER, causing cascading damage as exploding enemies in turn
blow up more enemies!

sixty second shooter is an homage to arcade classics such as
Asteroids, Space Duel, Robotron,and  Missile Command, given an
abstract glowing 3D look and a sixty-second game-time limit
that’ll have you saying, “Just one more
game…,” over and over.

sixty second shooter was the unheralded first game to use
Chrome’s Native Client and OpenGL to bring a high-framerate
3D experience to the browser – it’s a hidden gem in the
Chrome Web Store.

sixty second shooter is available NOW at

The game is free-to-play. It is ad supported, but players can
pay to buy extra energy for temporary upgrades and permanently
suppress the ads. The temporary upgrades give an advantage in the
game, but player skill is more important, and bonus free energy is
given out every day.
