* AwesomeYetPractical: Your "eat" move is this. Not only does it do a lot of damage, it also restores health for you and cancels out enemy projectiles. Plus, your score at the end of a level depends on how many times you hit the enemies with it.

Another difference from typical shooter mechanics is that the player's Eater does not die after being hit. It has a life bar, which can be charged by consuming enemies. It is even possible to eat enough charge the life bar past its starting position, creating a larger Eater which is not only more powerful but can take more damage as well.
