Near Miss

The player is given a small playing field with many tiny enemies visible and 5 elements with which to attack the enemies. When the player aims and launches an attack, all non-immune enemies within an area of effect will be killed, but any enemies within a larger area who escaped the fatal blast will gain an immunity to this element for the rest of their lives. The player's goal is to eliminate all enemies as fast as possible. If any enemy becomes immune to all 5 elements, winning is impossible.
