Alone in the universe

by ddr2 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Let's find out if we are alone in the universe ... or not. (maybe you will find kitten, I do not respond to how my game will react to certain codes)

I got the controls (up/down, left/right) and how to score points, but I feel a sense of loss on what I'm doing and why. What am /i? What are the expanding dots?

It seems like I can just leave the game running, and I will eventually get points on my own just by getting lucky. I kind of wonder what the point is.

The mechanic is a neat idea, but it's not that fun for me. Mostly, it's annoying to position the little things with the keyboard.

I like the music.

Well, due to my lack of graphic skills, I didn't put any texture and / or images in this game (maybe next LD, I will do it with some friends :D ).

The fact is, it was the gameplay (having the ability to turn the "motors" and not the "ship" itself like in any other space game) that interested me.

When I finished that part, I did not find anything that would "suit" very well with this so I quickly coded a score engine and a "poping" star system (star = circle ... lol ) and posted the game because I still find that the gameplay would be pretty fun if there was something else behind it :) . (I will certainly work on a new game based on a similar gameplay in the upcoming days)

Basic movement mechanics were interesting but annoying.

Very interesting game mechanic, but ATM it is a bit of a pain to control. A suggestion that might make it a little better is to assign different pair of keys for each motor, so we don't have to keep switching among them all the time.

chrome is telling me the connection is down.
if there only static content like flash or javascript, maybe hosting it on dropbox would have been a better idea.

@CaptainFresh : I totally agree with you ... now :D

@caranha : yup, I thought about this gameplay but the thing is I wanted to have the possibility to "add" motors for better speed but harder gameplay :D ... but I did not implemented this behavior during the LD :(

@leedo : sorry for the down time, I had to make some changes on my server ... clearly, putting it on dropbox would have been a better idea. I will keep it in mind for next LD :)

thx a lot to all of you.
