TheFridolin & AyCe present: GRAVITATION!

A little experimental game by TheFridolin, optimization & sounds by AyCe (also the music).

Use WASD or arrow keys to control the moon.
Protect the earth from comets.
Good luck.

There is no winning limit afaik...

I told TheFridolin about Ludum Dare, and convinced him to make a game for it. So we met at the weekend and I showed him how to make GUIs in Java. That's what his experiments yielded.
His homepage: http://www.champany.de/
I wanted to make a game myself too, but unfortunately I was too busy :(
Next time, hopefully :P

This is version 1.1. It just includes a workaround for the soundbug which caused the game to crash on startup, as well as a typo in the window title bar.

Cute. Nice small game. At first I was "this is too easy", then I died. Interesting idea.

You now have 1/4th more comments on your game!

Highscore: 24!

I quite like the music. I'm tempted to give you a NASA Graphics Stealer Medal though!

Suggestion: If you made little aliens to bounce the comets back into this would be alot more fun.

Hmph. I guess I'm one of the people who can't run it. :(

Here's the error dump: https://gist.github.com/2667302

I'm running 64 bit Linux, by the way.

I've uploaded a workaround. Sound will perhaps not work on some computers, but the game itself should.
