A bit more on the creation aspect:
On the design and presentation side the game features retro-styled black and white graphics, huge explosions, a catchy soundtrack and a scoreboard to compete against your friends. The game had not only to be challenging, but also it had to look fun and engaging.
Due to time and budget (a.k.a. none) constraints a minimalistic look was chosen. On the upside this allows the in-game typography to shine.
