When I visit the link, the page works but I get 404 for LudumDare.swf.

We changed out how we're embedding the file on the page, are you still having an issue?

Interesting, it's kind of a new take, since you don't actually collect things, but the planets orbiting you do. I thought it was pretty well done, and had a fun vibe. Music was good too!

Really enjoyed the audio. Took me a minute to figure out the controls and what I was doing but after that had some good fun.

I wasn't really sure what to do or if I was having any effect.

Really fun game, the music and sfx really add to the game nice concept too, only I couldn't seem to get an ending apart from the world is gone, the galaxy is at peace which is cool but once I'd hit over 150 in weight, surely the world was massive enough? Nice addition of the death star ;) +1 humour for that alone

Great game! Although, perhaps you could make it so that the game starts after the credits instead of having to loop through it every time. It works either way, but it's just a suggestion.

Lovely idea! although it does take some time to figure out what to do.
