Please post - is it working?

Very cool! I'm amazed that you did that for a jam. One quibble: Since I'm playing it on a laptop, the view is way too big and it makes it kind of unplayable, trying to avoid and shoot the monsters. It gets my vote for graphics though!

Same issue on my latop. Game view is too big.
The game is great, excellent graphics !

Graphics are gorgeous, gameplay is very solid, but slightly...ehh, "vanilla", could be improved in my opinion.

But yeah, playing this I would assume a helluva lot more than 2 days went into it, so well done!

Something tells me you've made games before...

Amazing! I never would have even considered making a game like this in 48 hours!

Solid build! The sky changing is fantastic.

Controls seem to get stuck every once in a while tho?

@Stalker_23b I did :D

Apr 24, 2012 @ 7:12am

I had some trouble with the controls, and felt 'thrown in' to tough enemies too soon. Awesome style though!

Needs music, otherwise perfect.

Apr 25, 2012 @ 2:33am

Amazingly good. Somebody is making the most of Unity Pro's features :D Really fun, polished game. I wish it was a little harder, but overall really enjoyed it.

SonnyBone says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 5:14am

WHOA MAN! So pretty! Needs music BADLY. The game gets really hectic and fun... and I dig the unique concepts you have going on. Keep working on this one! I'd love to play a final version. GREAT WORK!

Awesome stuff!

Stalker_23b says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 12:11pm

Thanks again! I agree about music needed, but i just can't make it myself. Initially i planned to use Wolfram Tones, but someone commented i cant use it because of copyright (

very entertaining shoot'em'up - loved the word transitions

the game looks incredible (games like this make me want to learn unity)

Wow! Really impressive!
Wonderful job man!

Mesene says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 4:54pm

I did something on unity too, but I'm not used to the graphics like you... Sir, im going to scope your project!
got some trouble with the camera & rotations like me.
Nice job man ;)

Datamosh says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 6:48pm

A few bugs, but looks great. Love the rotating world, nothing to envy to a Super Mario Galaxy! Could be improved (character design, but in 48 hs. it's obviously understandable!) It's super cute and loved the effects (the sunshine, blurry focus on the objects, etc.)

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! This is one awesome game!

Apr 26, 2012 @ 2:03am

Definetely a good game, I like your graphics a lot.

gregdevice says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 6:25pm

Wow, amazing visuals! Feels like a solid game. Controls take getting used to. Nice work!

Codexus says ...
Apr 27, 2012 @ 10:56pm

Nice shooter if a bit difficult, good looking graphics. But I died due to lack of mouse lock and then it restarted from the beginning...

dukope says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 4:43am

Nice visuals but ran quite slow on my mac, even at the lowest setting. I really like the use of dark/light and the planet transition concept. The upgrades added some nice depth.

Apr 29, 2012 @ 6:42am

Ha, lovely. Love the graphics.

summaky says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 9:48am

The controls are too hard for me; I seem unable to move exactly where I want to and makes me look ridiculous circling a health box... I loved the graphics and I wish I could do something like that! ^_^

Jezzamon says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 10:36am

I think this game will win best graphics!

I HOPE this game will win best graphics!

Graphics look amazing.

bitslap_ says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 12:45pm

Cool. Played it through with one death. Could be deeper in combat but the graphics and setting makes me not care.

Congratulations on a good performance.

Great game, These zorg are terrible!!! They're evil, what fear, like zombieeees

Well done, very well executed, graphics gorgeus and catchy as well!

Apr 30, 2012 @ 12:47am

As everyone's said, awesome graphics! A little music could have really helped with the mood.

Vilborg says ...
May 3, 2012 @ 4:55pm

Lagged too much to give you gameplay ratings. Good graphics, though!

May 5, 2012 @ 1:26am

Love the art! Kind of overkill with the Unity pro effects here, but its appealing at the same time. Good job!

Maple says ...
May 5, 2012 @ 11:39am

Amazing graphics, not as amazing gameplay. Very well presented.

Tifu says ...

Pretty good gameplay, I can't get very far though =D Love the visuals

AD-Edge says ...
May 5, 2012 @ 3:27pm

Very nice game! The best combat in any LD game Ive ever played, and it was a good challenge as well. Almost died on those last 2 planets, that boss planet was mental!

kibertoad says ...
May 5, 2012 @ 4:56pm

Amazing graphics, although a bit more optimization wouldn't hurt. Some extra lives or ability to continue where you died wouldn't hurt, though.

MrBarnslig says ...
May 5, 2012 @ 6:36pm

Amazing graphics, I couldn't figure out what to do though. I ran around and collected these blue boxes, and tried to shoot things but no dice. Wasn't able to figure out how to "launch" to other planets unfortunately. Frame rate was also an issue, but it looked stunning. I enjoyed just running around the planet to see the effects. :-)

gritfish says ...

Amazing graphics - the upgrade system is pretty cool to include in a 48 hour entry, but with so few options, having to run around and collect all the cubes at the end of every level was a bit of a chore.

What I loved about the cube collecting though, was if you DIDN'T grab them immediately, you could use them as cover, and that allowed for some cool moments of strafing behind and shooting out from cover.

May 6, 2012 @ 2:19am

day and night is sooo good. Does night time affect the aliens? it seemed as if they sped up on the dark side of planets, but wasn't sure. graphics overall = amazing. super great. it'd be awesome if you were to continue this onto something outside LD, just to fix the frame rate issues and some gameplay elements + add music. nevertheless it looks super mega brilliant.

Knighty says ...
May 7, 2012 @ 10:14am

Fun game. I liked the lighting effects, where if you go on the other side of the planet it becomes night.

Graphics are impressive!
a lot of content for a 48h compo.

Great work :)

Stunning graphics, very polished and actually fun. Congrats, it's an impressive entry!

TyrusPeace says ...
May 11, 2012 @ 2:10am

Nice graphics! I'm a little unsure of how well the pixely texture works wrapped aroudn those trees, but the DOF and shadows look really nice with the pixelated grass. The walking animations on the characters can be pretty distracting, and I had difficulties shooting enemies until they were right next to me (even with the bullet speed upgrade).

Nice work, though! The level transitions are really nice looking and the sounds work well.

angelk says ...
May 12, 2012 @ 9:21pm

Wow, the game looks great! I'm not sure how much unity is giving you for free here, but it's clear I need to learn to use it. I like the power ups, the art is definitely my style, and the shade mechanic is cool! great job.

scgrn says ...
May 13, 2012 @ 7:37am

Just WOW!!

Angerus says ...
May 13, 2012 @ 10:51am

Some much fun playing it ! I'm amazed by the view you use for this game. Really interesting ! gotta look at your source to see how you did this ! Really good game !

JonathanG says ...
May 13, 2012 @ 11:54am

A very nice looking game! The gameplay is fun too, although there was a bit of lag on the movement controls which made it hard to dodge the enemies. I like the upgrades between levels, that adds a bit of depth to it. Well done!

midgard says ...
May 13, 2012 @ 3:53pm

Really good but It's hard to still playing when you die and you return to your original planet :(
