RSD (Rect Sync Defense)

Arcade/Rhythm. When "Missile Command" meets "Rez"... a response can be "RSD" (Rect Sync Defense) -- RECTANGLES ONLY Gamedev Challenge! -- Whenever you look closely and precisely at a wave using your best microscope, you realize that it's only made of rectangles. That's the world of RSD where you control RectBot, the last resort robot defense against rhythmic rectangles attacks. Well, this story may be fictional and not based on real physics. Use your mouse to control your aim, and fire using the left button. Your projectiles will be DELAYED on the next available MUSIC BEAT. Watch out for attacks out of sight! Press left or right cursor keys to explore / side-scroll within the area.
