Chromium B.S.U. is a FREE, fast paced, arcade-style, top-scrolling space shooter. Primarily developed for the Linux platform, it also works in the Windows environment.
The game is a very cool fast action top down shooter, where you have to kill everything they throw at you and not let a single foe pass you
You are captain of the cargo ship Chromium B.S.U., responsible for delivering supplies to our troops on the front line. Your ship has a small fleet of robotic fighters which you control from the relative safety of the Chromium vessel.
Ammunition items include Machine Gun, Ion Cannon, Plasma Repeater and the “Big Red Button” of self destruction.
Power-ups include Shield Replenish, Damage Repair, and Super Shields/Extra Life.
Do not let ANY enemy ships get past your fighters! Each enemy ship that makes it past the bottom of the screen will attack the Chromium, and you lose a fighter.
Use your fighters as weapons! Crash into enemies to destroy them before they can get past you.
Strategic suicide is a powerful tactic! When the Chromium launches a new fighter, it releases a high energy burst which destroys all enemies in range.
Self-destruct to preserve your ammunition! A double-right-click will cause your current fighter to self-destruct. Before the ship blows up, it ejects its ammunition so that the next fighter can pick it up.
