Apeiron is based on that arcade classic Centipede. The action is fast and furious; blink and you're dead.
The story behind the game is that your ethereal energy has been trapped inside one of the shards of a shattered mirror, and you must defend the imprisoned energy against the hungry denizens of the mushroom patch, who are led by the pentipede.
Sometimes the mushrooms yield magic coins which bestow a variety of power-ups on you; some last until you die and others have time limits. Besides the pentipede, you have a lizard, a flying saucer, and an erratic spider to contend with. Even the mushrooms themselves can be deadly as some of the ones in the higher levels fall from the sky and try to squash you when you hit them. ~ Brad Cook, All Game Guide
