I enjoyed the flow and controls of this game!

i think what's already here is really well-made and it's a neat, minimalistic space trading game... but i found it really easy to stop playing. didn't see much reason to continue.

Zooming around is fun, and the music is quite fitting.

That being said, I had no idea what actually happened. Feedback was somewhat difficult to understand.

VERY nice controls, quite smooth and relaxing. Liked the music and general mood too.

The game controls are genial, and gameplay is funny. Good work

Neat little game, and well made... Fairly tight controls and the gameplay was fun for a while, but it lacked depth.

Thanks for all the feedback! I agree the main problems are feedback and depth - I was trying to keep it minimalist and simple, to just play with flow, but it definitely could do with more time spent on polish :)

I love the concept and the controls were very well.

Smooth gameplay, nice atmosphere with fitting music. I can not really think of one thing I would add to it without changing the concept.
The way it is, it's a good game with a great concept. Well done!
P.S.: Redheads as cargo? This is quite dystopian lol

I like it. I like it a lot. The other ships are so damn annoying - I want to shoot them all down.

nice little game. Nice graphics and the motion feels solid too. Upgrades would be aces! :)

all ingenious is simple, that's definitely about that game. the concept is simple and solid, similar to Space Rangers, i love that. music is great, and so is everything.
believe me or not, i had a dream where i enter some page, read the description of this game and then play it :D

Pretty neat! The 'clean pickup/dropoff' bonus makes it pretty challenging at times. Some kinda gameover when you reach 0 credits would be nice, but I got the point pretty quickly anyways.

Absolutely enjoyed this! You may have abused my soft spot for space traders, I long for them :)
Amazingly polished gameplay. One of the few gems I will play long after LD23 :)

(This would be great on an iPad, *hint* *hint*, pleaaase!)

interesting but agreed to most others, good music, good controls, good base for a game...but didn't really seem to be much to do or a point to doing it.

Neat! Very very fresh and original take on the space trader...love it! I agree with the common opinion here that there's not much drive to continue playing, but the core gameplay is well thought out and creative. Nicely done!
