In the tradition of extremely simple games like Asteroids and Canabalt, Bit Pilot manages to pack tons of fun into a tiny package. Here's the setup: You control a spaceship in an enclosed area. Lasers beam across the screen and asteroids fly at you from all directions. You must avoid getting hit for as long as possible. You can snag shield powerups to help buffer your ship against the increasingly hectic spray of space obstacles, but just like in life, you always end up dead."
