Flicker plays on the old issue that Atari games used to have, where the screen would flicker if too many objects were visible at the same time. You are a religious enthusiast who decides to go back in time one year and destroy the human race. Like you do.
As you shoot at the sun, it will begin to throw fireballs your way, and rather quickly both your main character and all the enemies will begin to flicker uncontrollably. The Thunderware Games guys believe that, rather than making the game unplayable, it adds a new level of excitement as you try to concentrate on where you are and what you're shooting at.
It's worth reading the readme that comes with the game to see some of the finer points of play. Give it a download from Gamejolt.
