Haha! Great idea...
After a while I wondered if the plane was even catchable or if you just wanted me to burn the whole earth (which I did actually...sorry Earth people)

I was going to say that I didn't like the intro scene graphics much but I just read you made it in 4 hours..whoah! that's impressive!

It was kind cool, and I liked the music, but was I missing anything? I couldn't seem to catch the bad guy...

Absolutely brilliant! Great concept and fun, managed to catch the guy eventually, after burning everything

That was fun! Gave up trying to catch the enemy in the end, but only after the whole world was ablaze. Good concept, pretty flippin' impressive for 4 hours' work.

ahhh what a perfect game!
how i played it:
2 min of learning the controls and burning the world
1 min of searching and burning the world
3 min of intense hunting the plane, and of course burning the world
1 min of enjoying the the rescue and of course the burning world
Its the greatest day in my live :D

such an simple game, but possible my favorite right now (my first 5/5 rating for everything)
GREAT JOB!

I like it. I'm surprised everyone had so much trouble catching the plane, it maybe took me 45 seconds. I suspect the gameplay isn't framerate independent. The music is good but the sound effects are too loud and are annoying. The boost never runs out, so there's no point in not pressing it.

It's very funny and a nice, short-and-sweet entry.

Thought this was great! Took me a while to realise that I _had_ to have the boost going the entire time to stand any chance of catching the enemy, but when it clicked I appreciated the AI / algo which led to an interesting dogfight mechanic. Lovely presentation and story, and the music was fun too, a good package and fun for a good few minutes. Made in 4 hours? WOW
