excellent-bifurcation - an abstract two-sided vertical shooter
The aliens have attacked, and their ability to exist in either or both
of their world and ours has given them an almost unsurpassable
Take command of a special fighter craft capable of existing in both
realities at once and drive them back!
The form your fighter takes on the left has double fast-firing cannons
and can charge to release up to eight seekers. It is ideal for
destroying small and weak but numerous enemies. The right-hand form has
a single powerful cannon which fires slowly but does far more damage,
and is more suited to taking out larger enemies. It can charge up to
release a wave which passes through things, damaging them as it goes
(unlike the beam weapons, which only hit anything once no matter how
thick it is). You can switch them between the worlds depending on what
kind of firepower you need where.
