Sorry, you need java 7 to run it. I'll recompile it for you with Java 6. Thanks for feedback!

So, it should be fixed - I hope you try again! :)

I wished the bullets from my turret would move a bit faster! XD but the speed currently forces a bit of strategy.

I like the game, and the core gameplay is very innovative. The difficulty is a bit high though, and a more gradual difficulty would be appreciated.

LEADERBOARD GET: 368 people saved :D (pics or it didn't happen)

A bit hard with the bullet speed and stuff, and very simple, but an okay game.

Quite cool! It starts slow but then gets frantic with all the missiles! I would just make that holding the mouse button would permanently shoot at a certain rate, otherwise it gets a bit too much on the button mashing side. :)

Fun little defense game, the bullet speed seems to be much to slow.

short and simple. I liked it.

Pretty cool, but the bullet seemed like it moved way to slow. Also the graphics could use a little bit of a revamp, other than that I liked it :D

Apr 27, 2012 @ 3:23pm

Pretty fun stuff, I was able to rescue 429 people. Maybe holding the mouse down should stream the firing as its already a hard game.

Pretty cool game. What would be really cool is if you could add turrets to the planet and do a sort of tower-defense-except-with-a-planet type game.

Nice and simple shooter. Would like to see some visualization of the planet's health.

Not bad, I just feel like I've seen this exact game several times before. Something, anything, to mix it up would be nice.

I concur, the bullet speed is too damn slow. Will the game end when I rescued all 7 billion people? :-P

It'd be great to visualize the planet's health. Thanks!
