The problem with simplicity is that there is such a thing as being too simple, too basic. Aeon Racer is a basic game, that is often to its detriment. In this here game, you control a spaceship that flies forward towards its goal, your only control over it being the ability to move it left and right. In your way are various layouts of barriers that come in increasingly complex patterns and start to move back and forth later in the game. Helping you out is a shield that can take several hits before you die, and pads that will slow you down, although this decreases your score, as you get more points for flying through barriers at higher speeds, so the speed up pads that are also in play can become either obstacles that hinder your completion, or tools to help you on your way to high scores.
