Vortex is fun, it’s crazy and anyone can play it. You are in control of a Camper Van flying through a Vortex, it’s crazy maaaan. Collect the rocket fuel molecules unless your fuel capacity will run out and the game will end displaying your time and molecule count.

This game was intentionally made for all kinds of players from children to adults, casual to hard-core gamers. Simplicity is the key and people can challenge their friends and family. How can last the longest? Who can collect the most molecules.

– Particle systems everywhere!
– Music by ensnare
– Tweet/Share your scores and challenge your friends
