USB gamepads are supported, but the controls are very simple even if you don't have one; move with the arrow keys and fire by pressing [control]. Collect power-ups to upgrade your arsenal or increase your speed, and don't get hit. That's all you need to know!
One interesting feature of Guxt is the play-records directory, created when you run the game for the first time. A record is saved every time you play, and you can watch your previous games by dragging the save files onto the game window. If you're feeling generous, email them to Pixel to aid in his continued work tuning the game.
As with Cave Story, Pixel doesn't attempt to be revolutionary or even particularly modern, but his original music, sound effects and pixel-perfect sprites come together beautifully in this difficult but fair shooter. Enjoy!
