Based on the old "Daleks" game, TAAOSA turns the concept into an arcade game with 20 levels, 5 game speeds, a challenge mode and the ability set the player either as always moving (MUCH trickier!) or with the ability to stop.

Unashamedly retro in every aspect, if you want amazing visuals then look elsewhere, but if you want a simple, challenging game that's randomised every time you play it, you might just find this to be your cup of tea.


- Arrow keys to move

- T to teleport (to a random location)

- B to launch bomb (clears area immediately around you)

New features in v1.2 :

- Change background colour

- Bombs

- Obstacles

- Chose number of Teleports / Bombs / Obstacles per level

First review!


"It’s simple, incredibly easy to pick up and play, while still maintaining a degree of difficulty. A tweakable degree. The best kind."

One of the most fun parts is using your imagination along with it.  Are you a lone survivor running away from a horde of zombies? are you a Rebel space ship escaping a huge empire in space?   The only limit is your imagination. The game it self is charming in a simple way and a good time killer, if you're a lover of old atari style games then this will be perfect for you it's like playing minesweeper along with you being allowed to run the things chasing you into bombs and other traps.  I had a good time with the game and enjoyed how charming it was.

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed it. :-) tbh I'd never thought of it in terms of it being like minesweeper with moving mines, but that's actually quite an apt description! 

Planned for future updates:

  • Choose background colour
  • Select number of times teleport can be used
  • Random obstacles
  • Some kind of bomb / push weapon to affect nearby enemies

These updates are now in the game :)
