Another Monkey dev! Great game :D I like the increased dodging speed as you approach collision. Really neat action. Or maybe that's just my system catching up.

It's fun, but hard to react to the asteroids when they come as fast as they do.

Try to let go Spacebar after getting Nitro. It will make it easier in some ways. But I do not deny that it is necessary to have quick reaction as well as a lot of luck to win.)

Thanks) In the near future it will be submitted on MonkeyCoder. Also, I'm going to upset Mark Sibly with couple bugs that I found :)

I like the look of the spaceman. I found that keeping myself in nitro was pretty easy - I always died because of low health.

Great graphics, great idea, great music... but ultimately more frustrating than fun with how much it feels like winning is based purely on being lucky. If you could see maybe twice as far ahead of you or so, it would be golden.

Nice little twitch-reflex game.

The astronaut's movement is really slow compared to the speed at which things are coming towards you.

This is a really hard game. Fun though.

Solid package overall, but unfortunately my reflexes couldn't catch up with the game XD

A good game :) my only complaint is that nitrous seems to lead only to bad stuff :p

Very impressive little game for your first ever attempt!

Really fun and hard, it reminded me of that old game where you control a plane and have to pick the fuel tanks. On the other hand, I think I should get the achievement for hitting almost all rocks on my path...
