It's been updated with better art, music and a little story.

I found it quite difficult to time the release right; I love the idea for the play mechanic, but it didn't feel quite right to me.

An interesting concept! The music adds a lot to the mood.

@Rybar, I thought about adding a little arrow showing the current vector of your planet, but I thought it might be more confusing because the other gravitational forces largely invalidate it.

Interesting orbital sling shot mechanic. It was a bit annoying having the lost screen come up constantly. The music was really good and gave a good spacey vibe.

This was a surprise! I honestly didn't think much from the screenshots, but it just proves you can't judge a book by it's cover! This is a lovely, well thought out and relaxing puzzle game that I really enjoyed. Well done!

Nice, simplistic gameplay concept. The physics don't feel entirely fluid, though; especially near wormholes. But overall, very well done.
