Tiny Space

by Jan Willem - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My first real entry! Not much gameplay, but it works.
Movement with WASD & QE for strafing. Left mouse button to shoot a rocket.

Goal: target practice on the planet, that's it. Sorry no real gameplay, but it's better than giving up!

Thanks Ludum Dare for this great experience, again! :3

I'll upload my timelaps soon.

4/5 on fun, because...it was very fun. No real point, but i destroyed the entire planet anyway!

Awesome first entry! Great work! You should definitely keep it up :)

I made a tunnel through the earth and I like how the nebula in the background looks. The sound was a bit harsh. It could be fun if you do a bit more with it.

Played until the whole planet was gone! Pitty you didn't get the chance to put in some more content, but the game itself was quite solid. Movement seemed pretty smooth. Only real complaint I have is the audio.

A really good start! I would have picked some different sounds, though. The explosion sound hurts me ears

@invaderJim I agree, first time I did anything with making sounds, so they're pretty bad. Didn't want to spent to much time on them though, so I just left it.

I've created a blog: http://spacegame.crealuz.nl/.
I plan on expanding my idea, LD was only the start.

Very good for a first entry, could really use some more gameplay elements though.

I tunneled through the planet. Nice basis!

This game would be really cool if you expanded it a bit more.

Although there's not much game here, I liked the controls. I haven't flown an Asteroids-style spaceship that had momentum on the turn speed before, and found it to be rather challeging. Enjoyed it a lot just for that.
