That was awesome!
I've always liked games with gravity, orbits and all that stuff. The game looks nice and plays well, and most importantly, is fun!

Might've been nice with a more zoomed out view or a map or something so you could (attempt to) plan your shots better, it's a bit random now since you have no idea where you're going. I guess that would've gone against the theme though, and probably wouldn't have been as funny =)

Anyway, it's still fun! I like how all the planets have unique names.

Also, the scoring system is a bit odd. I got more points for a short run discovering only 7 or so planets than I got when flying all over the map with lots of combos, discovering 27 planets.

It felt pretty random how you did on each flight, but still, each launch made me smile :)

Awesome! Everything from the music to the planet names is brilliant, and there's even a modicum of strategy too (estimating size based on weight, etc.) - only thing that's maybe slightly disturbing is the implication that you're killing all these astronauts, or at least wasting vast amounts of taxpayers' money on firing ships randomly into asteroids (if you're me) :D

I kept on playing this game. It's just great. I managed to get Legendary Explosion and a x9 combo and felt great.

The graphics are really good and I liked the audio a lot as well. I especially liked the generated names of the planets and how nothing stays in the same place. Awesome stuff!

Too slow on my eeepc 1000HE, I will try it on a more powerful machine and rate it later :)

I was sold on the humor point when I saw my rank "Soon to be fired". Overall great game.

Well, after playing my immediate thought is that some of the behaviours made no sense to me (launch out then the ship stops, turns and crashes back into the planet it just left) but I thought it was pretty cool

That was fun and satisfying despite being pure luck and slamming my last ship straight into an asteroid. So, not much of a game, but a fun thing to do! It would sell as a flash game, I bet.

Kinda simple but also kinda fun!
Very polished, but too much luck for my taste. You basically have no idea where you're going to and fire blindly somewhere. Would be neat to have at least a tiny amount of control once you're in flight. Also, speed up the score list, I want to retry faster :)

Strangely compelling.
