Glowy is a Shmup Dev competition entry by Tom Beaumont, the creator of Hex-a-hop. There are some Japanese shooter elements to be found here, for example the inclusion of a hit point to indicate your ship's vulnerability.

Bullets can be grazed to increase the strength of your weapon temporarily. Tap the Z key repeatedly to use your spread shot or hold down the button for a common rapid shot.

The author has decided not to include any background music or sound effects, although it does have a final boss encounter and runs at a consistent frame rate without any problems.
