A really good idea, I especially dig the starting sequence. However during the game the ship control is way to sensitive.
It's near impossible to survive through several screens if you keep going slow. My best strategy so far is to get going at full acceleration and hopefully evade stars long enough ;)

I like the idea, but the ship is extraordinarily difficult to control, so I could never play for more than 60 seconds before dying.

I think the gravity-based gameplay has a lot of potential, but you need to slow it down so that the player has a chance to explore without crashing almost immediately.

@ladron @stevejohnson @Endurion

I've reduced the gravitational pull from planets, it should be a lot easier now!

I'm a fan of Lunar Lander-like games, and I must say this game is good ! The soundtrack sounds a little bit oldschool; it's a somehow repetitive, though. It's hard to control the ship, I'm sad that you have more chances to reach the objective by going really really fast and doing it again and again, than being careful about where to go... The objective seems to be finding wormholes, but it should be more clearly stated (stay on the screen). What's more, there should be a way to skip the intro sequence when you want to play multiple times (or provide a "play again" button). You could also have posted more messages to the LD blog. Overall, your game is quite good ! :)

I'm not an astronaut enough to beat this :P

As earlier people have mentioned, the sensitivity of the controlls are very high. Otherwise a quite nice game! I have a hard time reading all the planet-facts considering the speed I'm usually moving at.
