by Alex - Competition Entry

Arrows keys to move, asteroids style. Dodge the holes. Music may or may not repeate (don't ask me why).

Hard game, reminds me of Pilotwings skydiving!

SonnyBone says ...

LOL

I got to 240.. then SPLAT.

This is actually VERY fun. Thumbs up! It doesn't really go with the theme, though.

:(

Excellent. This is a very nice casual game. I enjoyed playing it a lot. The graphics are easy, but match very good. Great experience. The best is probably the music. It's not really "exploration", though, but never mind.

gimblll says ...

Reminds me of the recent aaaaAAaaaAAAaaA game. Could've used a bit more something to do.

Das Ubeleben. Dem groBen Sprung.

scellers says ...

Fun, casual game, and cool idea. :) The control scheme took me a little getting used to (maybe I should play more asteroids...), but I enjoyed it.

Selkie says ...

I think it doesn't fit very well the theme, but I find it a great game =D

Overman says ...

I know you only had 48 hours, but this was all you came up with? Ehh...

philomory says ...

Ok, this game lacks any sort of staying power whatsoever, but for the 1-2 minutes it held my interest, it was really pretty amusing! Nice music, too, but what really did it for me was the crazy scientist dude. Silly scientist, you should know you can't change your trajectory in mid-air!

localcoder says ...

Crazy fun times. I found it more effective to zoom around desperately than to go slow and steady. Going fast and reckless seems to match the music and the storyline too.

A shadow would be nice, to show how far the explorer is to hitting the edge.

I enjoyed the "oh-no-oh-no-oh-no!' feeling of I got as I tried to squeeze into the gap before it was too late :O and the short-lived relief each time I made it.

ianh says ...

It's fun, but this isn't really exploration!

matrin says ...

The game was very fun, but the music loop was too short. It got annoying fast. :(

wonderwhy-er says ...

Hmm here were few game like that recently one of which looked exactly the same and had multiplayer with pushing each other :) Can't remember how it was called :( Soo does not seem that innovative. Also I don't think it fits theme well. Not really an exploration. Music is good and mechanics is fun tough :)

jplur says ...

Animations, music, and the idea were great. Gameplay should of got harder, I got bored and killed myself. Maybe smaller holes, increase the speed as you get deeper, and add collectible items.

AtkinsSJ says ...

Couldn't get to grips with the controls, and it was hard to see how close you are to the hole, and the approaching ledges.

Hempuli says ...

260!
There seemed to be something fishy in the way the holes resized when they got closer, though. And I dunno if this is really exploring...

dertom says ...

I liked the game! Easy concept and much fun

dock says ...

You were really hoping for a different theme, huh? :)

sinoth says ...

Fun game, but where is the exploring?

DrPetter says ...

350. Kind of fun but slow. Ok.

arzi says ...

Fun and all, but not very much exploration. Nor that much gameplay either.
