An intense, fast-paced action game from developer f1ash, Iconien plays like a modern update to the arcade classic, Missile Command. Put your basic click & drag mouse skills to the test as you defend your base from wave after wave of stubborn missiles, creepy bugs, mindless circles and powerful tanks.
Hold down the left mouse button and drag a box around the incoming projectiles before they reach your base, the strange unsympathetic eyeball in the center of the screen. Releasing the button will destroy whatever you've managed to enclose, or damage your base if it intersects with the box. Move objects by dragging them anywhere on the screen, and collect power ups by placing them on your base.
Like Air Support and Invader360, two f1ash games previously reviewed on JIG, Iconien manages to squeeze as much fun as possible out of a very simple idea. I particularly enjoyed the endless Survival mode, as the Easy and Normal game types both end after you defeat a certain enemy.
