Dromad is a survival shooter that mixes up the action with some interesting design and balancing ideas. You are a warrior trapped in a dangerous tomb, and must keep the enemy back for as long as possible.
As blobs, knights and goblins come dashing in from the edges of the level, you need to use the horizontal shooting to sweep up and down and take them out. The restriction on not being able to fire up and down feels harsh at first, but soon reveals itself to be a rather enjoyable concept as you dodge around to get into a better position. Gradually throughout play, new enemies will appear and up the ante, but you'll also receive upgrades to your gun that will tip the balance back in your favour.
I managed 524 in the end - pretty proud of that! Give Dromad a play at Newgrounds.
