Kind of a cheeky move of the enemy, @jbleveque, to match your vertical position and then ram you horizontally - you have no way to shoot them since you are always shooting up.

Great job! Very challenging, but every time I feel like trying again.

@dw817 Thanks for the feedback ! Yes they are cheeky indeed. The safest strategy is to take them down while they are static. Or if you want more points you can try to bait them to charge and then back down to kill them in one shot.

@profpatonildo Thank you !

Oh you can move up and down, @jbleveque ?

*facepalm* Wow. Okay so here I thought all this time you could only move left and right. Yeah then it's very possible to avoid them. With this knowledge, great shooter overall ! Gold star work.

Finally I can defeat Eye of Vox after couple tries. Too bad my score fell into negative zone during boss fight.
