Nitrome Target Smash is a challenging time trial game in which players try to hit all of the targets and collect all of the items within an alloted time. As they collect more items or smash more targets, they gain more time. Each character has five levels assigned to them, in which the next level will be unlocked upon completing the subsequent one.
