Review by tapeworm
Missile Wave 2 is the sequel to one of the minigames in Galaxy Arcade. You protect a structure from a relentless onslaught of missiles using the mouse to target them. But these aren't ordinary missiles. They disappear and reappear, spawn smaller missles, fly loops, and even impersonate lions. Their variety is impressive. You collect several different types of powerups that help you fend off the missiles. The effects of the special weapons vary almost as much as the missiles.

The game's graphics are simple but polished, just like the mechanics. Things are very colorful, and there are lots of particles flying around. The music doesn't really stand out, but it isn't bad at all.

Like Tetris and many arcade games, you can't finish Missile Wave 2. It just goes on until you lose, which makes for a fairly punishing experience. I find the game quite difficult even on Normal mode, but since you lose eventually no matter what, I suppose it doesn't really make sense to say that. Regardless, this is one that compels you to try again when you lose to get farther than you did the last time.

When I discovered Game Maker, this was one of the first games that really impressed me. At least, it was one of the first I bothered to play more than a few minutes.

This game is pretty good. I always play on expert mode. This game also hurts my hand a bit.
