Previously released for the Xbox Live Indie Games platform, Score Rush offers multiple enemy waves of increasing difficulty, each of which is capped off by a tough boss fight. Players can collect power-ups to increase their firepower and add option ships, and bombs can be used to clear the screen when the barrage of bullets becomes too hectic.
I found that Score Rush's twin-stick gameplay transferred quite well to a mouse-and-keyboard setup. Despite a slight graphical downgrade, the HTML5 version is just as fun and engrossing as the XBLIG original, and I really enjoyed the time I spent with it. The addition of leaderboards and achievements is definitely appreciated, too.
Score Rush is free to play, but requires users to sign up with the Turbulenz game portal.
