ReplicatorBrent Silby has created one of the coolest arcade games I have played in a very long time. Think retro-cool as in Galaga, Defender, Centipede and Robotron, and you'll be close to what the action is like in his latest game, Replicator. This game is 100% pure, turbo-charged DHTML! How cool is that?!

Control is with the keyboard using keys [IJKL] or [WASD] for moving the ship, and [ZX] or [NM] for firing horizontally and vertically. Hold one of the fire buttons down for rapid fire. Destroy all the eggs before they hatch into bugs. Destroy all the bugs before they replicate more eggs.

This game is awesome retro-arcade gaming goodness. The ship moves responsively while firing in opposite directions simultaneously. The action really heats-up as the levels increasingly fill with enemies. The modern techno soundtrack and retro-style sound effects greatly enhance the arcade feel and overall polish of the game. Overall, Replicator captures the essence of arcade action fun and delivers it lovingly in a browser window.

Update: Since this review was written, Brent has ported most of his games over to Flash, so if the DHTML version doesn't run smoothly for you, try the Flash version.

Yes, good score, but did you get past wave 6? That one seems to be a problem for me. =/

Is level 6 the one that starts with only 3 eggs? If so, as soon as the level starts, move to the right firing vertically. Get rid of those 2 eggs then switch to horizontal fire and move to destroy the bug that hatched from the 3rd egg. Then quickly get the other eggs before they hatch. Get them by firing horizontally so that any bug that appears will move into your line of fire almost instantly.

That's the one. Thanks, Brent. =)

neat, game was pretty fun. 27 levels total. Good thing is that your ship can touch the eggs, so you can easily fly inside a batch of them and start firing away.

I got 189550, and made it to wave 11. I am using firefox on a 1ghz machine so that may be why. at times I found it to be unresponsive to the fire key(s). Over all a great retro game though. btw the three egg wave repeats itself later and he adds some bugs that requires 2 shots. I am shocked that it is DHTML. It is an inspiration to me to see what can be done.

It also runs pretty well in google chrome.

If anyone has a problem with this game in Firefox, there's a plug-in called IE Tab Plug-in that allows you to run pages that would normally only run in Internet Explorer within Firefox.
