Poor Pluto

by flownerous - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Whipped this up in 8 hours after giving up on my Plan A game last night. Pretty simple and lacks polish. Hope it's a bit of fun though.

Amazing we both came to the same concept! Your game makes mine look like a sequel! Poor Pluto's Revenge http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?uid=5049

Great job making a simple, enganging game.

The game seems to very suddenly get too difficult to continue at some point (After I could get about 1400pts). I'd suggest balancing the difficulty curve so there's more of a gradual doom.

Poor Pluto! :(

Simple as it is there's not much to say about it other than the fact that for an 8 hour game it's pretty nice. I think you've got all the basics even if you don't have much polish (though the particle effect on the shield is nice).

Highest score 2462 - longest chain 46. I am not very good.

Game brought a big smile to my face - very straight forward and good fun. While I struggled massively with abrupt changes of attack I kept playing. I could see this either being tidied up a bit to be a cool minigame in a full release, or having many cool tweaks to make it really polished looking and give the gameplay some more legs.

Excellent for 8 hours. Big smiley face is nice.

Surprisingly fun, good controls. Love the pop at the end (a balloon pop sound would have been cherry on top, though). :D

Very simple yet fun to play. I like Pluto face and game over explosion

Managed 943 points. Not bad for 8 hours :)

A bit tough when the bombs start to come in from the opposite site, since the shield movement is hard to predict if you move fast.

350, longest chain 25
cute game. reminds me a lot of bit.trip beat on a circle. some music and more score feedback would go a long way. also wasn having trouble getting from one side of the planet to the other accurately enough when the direction flip-flopped. fun though.
