There isn't very much going on. Is there a goal?

I commend you on making an entry, but surely you could have done much more that this in 48 hours..?

well everyone's gotta start somewhere.

Congratulations on your first LD!

When I started playing, I didn't notice the 'metres explored' counter at the top, and I was going to say it's annoying that you don't know how much progress you've made. But now I've noticed the counter so I see that you already thought of that.

Right now, the asteroids appear inside the screen so I can see them appearing - if they appeared just off the edge of the screen instead, it would create the illusion that they were always there.

There isn't much to the game so far but I could imagine you adding a reward system (maybe something happens after you explore a certain amount?) or more things to do to keep it interesting for longer.

I hope you had a good time and will come back for the next ludum dare.

This work functionally as promised. I hope to see you again in April.

Not too original there buddy... But because I cannot bring myself to rating others' games lower than 3, I will give you a 3.

Cosr says ...

Reasonable for a first attempt. Don't stop now.

Hamumu says ...

Well, I got 6381 meters. I'm gonna call that a win. Really minimal, but it does work right.

Congratulations on getting this done, but unfortunately there isn't enough to do.

Is there a goal?I flew a bit around just to find out the collisiondetection is not on pixel-basis :D
