A frantic arcade game from the creator of 868-HACK, Corrypt and Glitch Tank. An "anti-shmup". Precise touchscreen controls to avoid and encircle enemies. Some twists.

Honourable mention for IGF Design award 2013/2015.

What’s New

Version 1.03

Due to the baffling inability of Apple's vast team of highly paid engineers to maintain backwards compatibility while updating their operating system, the rendering area of some applications became displaced off-center on the screens. For this new version, I recompiled Helix to fix this issue. No code changes were necessary. The game itself has not been altered; it is already excellent.

I also changed the icon.

Doesn’t fit on iPad screen properly

Game might be good, but about 15% of the game is skewed off the left of the iPad and can’t be seen properly. Makes playing a frantic game nigh on impossible

Michael does it again

Look, it’s not the most visually sophisticated of games (although it’s got its own style), but with that out of the way we can just say that this is one of those perfect, just one more go games that has obviously been finessed over many months. Highly recommended.
