Magnetron NDS remix, a clone of Robotron and Llamatron games for the Nintendo DS. It is a fast paced arcade game.

User guide

Shoot enemy nastys, collect friends R,G,B and get a short power shot. Collect other power ups for more abilities. Clear enemys of each stage 42 times and your done.

Master the ability to move and shoot in various directions at the same time if you are to survive more than a few levels. Move quickly, think fast, and calculate the risk on retrieving that power up or free life, a moments distraction means death!
