Swarmation: utterly thrilling single-pixel co-op game (Time Waster)

You play one plucky pixel in a mission to MAKE LOW-RESOLUTION SHAPES! Except for other pixels getting in the way, no one can stop you!

The only controls are the arrow keys. You control the blue pixel. Every other pixel is played by another human, and you can see their score by mouse-overing. That's about it, really.

I played Swarmation for about five minutes before I was suddenly overwhelmed with a feeling of pointlessness. It's fun -- and probably quite frustrating if you're a competitive type -- but it just wasn't for me.
