So I took away the buttons.

"Nothing Left" is a no-button vertical-scrolling bullet-hell shooter with procedurally-generated waves of enemies. (It starts getting really exciting after level 5.)

The game is pretty close to the essence of the genre, to the point where you can't actually shoot at the enemies--its all about your dodging skills.

There is one powerup, a shield. The shield decays faster when you are closer to enemies. The length between powerups gets longer every time you choose to pickup a shield. Might not want to grab it unless you need it. Skilled players may find an additional use for the shield.

The only programming tool used was Processing, with BXFR and Audacity for the sound samples. Audio is done entirely via HTML5, so it may not work on your browser, especially if you aren't using a recent update.

Let me know your score. I'd like to see how far you can get. (Level 20 gets insane.)
