After a successful run on the Xbox Live Indie Games service, Xona Games' twin-stick scrolling shooter Score Rush is now available via the Chrome Web Store as an HTML5 Google Chrome app.

Score Rush pits players against swarms of enemies and a series of difficult bullet-hell boss battles, but evens the odds with ample power-ups and screen-clearing bombs. The HTML5 edition switches the XBLIG original's dual-stick controls with a keyboard-and-mouse setup that proves to be a suitable replacement, after some practice.

Score Rush is free to play, but requires players to sign up with the (also free) Turbulenz portal.
