    Very nicely made, well polished, not the best gameplay ever but good enough for an LD.

    would love to see the source on how you made this. It looks like you rendered it into a very small rendertarget, and then did pixel art for the UI on top.

    Great job! The animation and art are superb. Awesome audio too; a fun little game.

    I enjoyed the game quite a bit and the graphics are frankly amazing. I like the little touches, like the fact that the level loops around and that the obstacles have a sound that appears slightly before they show up.

    I don't think I'd play for too long, but there's enough gameplay for a couple of play-throughs.

    Great job!

    Great game. The art and sound are super solid. I love the super low-res 3D feel. It gives it a weird retro-yet-futuristic feel. The gameplay is really intuitive, and there are a lot of nice subtle touches, especially the way the planet loops around.

    Absolutely wonderful. I enjoyed myself immensely with this little game. The graphics are pretty, sound fits nicely, and winning feels great! Even if it does send a cat soaring through space....I'm sure he'll be fine. Great job!

    Great atmosphere and the gameplay is pretty solid. Great job!

    Dec 20, 2011 @ 5:54pm

    Where's the source at? Is the pixel effect a shader?

    Codexus says ...
    Dec 20, 2011 @ 7:27pm

    Nice game, original concept and one-button gameplay. And great cat (superb animation)!

    What I don't get though, is the pixelated effect. It's Unity so it's not a technical limitation and it really ruins the game's graphics.

    Also post the source, please, it's mandatory for compo games.

    Dec 20, 2011 @ 7:51pm

    Masterful! Loves it.

    This is awesome. I love it.

    Although it's simple reflex based game, I really liked it - resulting visuals are excellent, I'd really love to see your sources how you made it in Unity :)

    Best game with kittens ever. I like sound echo, graphics and light/shadow stuff.

    I LAUNCHED INTO ORBIT. I dig the art style here. The gameplay is fairly simple and standard for this type of game, but the premise and graphics set it apart.

    No sourcecode download?

    Beautiful! I never thought it would actually be like the screenshot... like, it could just as easily have been a silly clip-art concoction. Lots of fun, and well-balanced. The dog sounds like a cat in the end, though.

    The graphics made me remember the old days of voxels. It's short and easy to learn, but I'm bummed that it's another runner.

    But where's the required source?

    Doktor Ace says ...

    Hi guys!

    I'm sorry for a very late answer, but I've been caught up with work.
    The reason there is now source is because the game was made in Unity Pro, and I didn't think most people could use it.
    I have however converted the game to a more simpler Unity Free-version that anyone should be able to use.

    You can find all the information here: http://farrokhgames.com/?page_id=18

    And feel free to download the source! :D
