Collect stars to change or upgrade your weapon by transporting through them on your way to an asteroid on the other side of it.

Cool music but no video.

my score was 37150. It was pretty fun! The best part was that apparently your house can be three times as big as the world it is built on.

I really enjoyed the way this game played. It had a very nice pace and was effectively balanced. The best part was where the house fell over, which came right after five blue carrier-looking ships overwhelmed me. Does the game have an ending, or does it just get impossible? Good music, and a very fun arcadey type game. It kind of goes to show that a really simple concept of "shoot enemies before they get to this place" can be entertaining if executed well.

Hahaha great fun and very amusing! Great range of enemies. Highest score so far around 45k but I'll try and beat that!

That was... very fun! The jumping from asteroid to asteroid was a really neat idea and the difficulty was spot-on.

Can we get a Mac/Unix/Web build of this? I'd like to play, but I don't have a windows machine.

It gets harder and harder and then you die. But very innovative!

Mac please!

Thanks for all the comments people.

I've just started looking into doing a linux version, the game is written in c++ using allegro so it's mostly cross-platform, unfortunately I have little linux experience and don't have much time available at the moment so you could be waiting a while. Sorry I can't do a mac version since I don't have one.

Fun game ! The five blue monsters are insane.
Liked how the house fell from the planete.

Apr 26, 2012 @ 8:39pm

Ha, that was great fun to play

Had problems running on Windows 7. The music played, but no game screen appeared.

Really like the style of the monsters. Enjoyed playing it. Can get really tricky to coordinate moving and shooting but it's nicely balanced.

Jumping from planet to planet at some moments felt disadvantageous and I was wonder why I would ever move from my perfect sniping spot... then the first weapon appeared and I jumped ship to snag it.

Awesome mechanic and good incentive to keep the player moving!! Nicely done. I'd love to see you keep going with this! :)

Surprisingly fun! Simple but actually pretty neat, the gameplay mechanics worked together well and the weapon design was mostly alright.

The teleport animation+sfx was surprisingly satisfying, and even though the "NOM" graphic is a bit silly I think it works with the general aesthetic here.

Pretty fun game! The art has a nice, consistent style to it. It can get really...cluttered...at times, which was a nice touch.

Pretty fun little game! I liked the "jumping around on asteroids" mechanic, and the cool weapons you could collect. Good job!
