Flash based riff on Robotron

It’s not exactly a Robotron clone, but Luminara is a fun, fast paced 8-way shooter that uses the core Robotron gameplay mechanic in a stylized setting, and it’s a perfect friday fun link. It’s not a perfect game though – it’s too easy to lose track of the aiming icon in all the activity on screen, and after several games I’m starting to think that staying in the center is a better tactic than moving around. Also, the laser made me laugh when I first got it, but as a gameplay element I think it’s pretty lame. Still, for a lunchtime diversion it’s worth a look.
