Panspermia

by camdensegal - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Fertilize the universe.

I didn't have a ton of free time this weekend but tried to make due with what I had, overall I'm pretty proud of the result here. Instructions and further explanation are on the game page.

Funny little concept. Reminds me a lot of angry birds space though :P. Cool over all execution.

I really like the basics and idea of your game, but it needs more effects, music and sounds. The game itself was a little slow paced but it worked well and it was fun to play:) +1 from me.

Great concept & innovative use of the theme! I think you should make the meteors move a bit faster though, I found the gameplay a little slow. Otherwise though, very well done!

Some of the shots are quite hard, but it's fun. I didn't read the instructions, so the first planets got pretty cataclysmic.

Simple but nice shooting mechanic :-D. Liked the concept of seeding planets.

Do not understand neither the rules nor the interest ...

I found this game very entertaining! I really liked the gameplay and the overall feel of the game, but the meteors could be a little bit faster :)

I love these physics-based games! The satisfaction of setting a trajectory that gets it 'just right'.

I think some kind of Beginning-of-Alien-esque-ambience, you know that kind of hollow windy ambience would have been a good placeholder in lieu of actual sound effects.

I agree that the meteors could move a bit faster too. Really enjoyed the game though. :)

Great game. Exactly the sort of thing LD should be about IMHO. I like the graphics, the simple intuitive controls but varied gameplay, the Angry Birds style scoring and the overall mood a lot. Agree with other commenters that the meteors could be faster (i.e. faster speed for a given trajectory). Some audio would be nice too. Finally, I'd like to be able to pick up the game where I left off before after quitting and returning.

A bit slowpaced, but the satisfaction when you make an perfect aim is godlike =) Got stuck on one of the latter levels, three planets and one sun. Too difficult and random to make that shot.

I took a while to understand what it was about, kind of my fault for not reading the instructions down there, but you could give a short explanation upon startup!

I liked the gameplay a lot, very cool concept. Congratulations!

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Seems like we have a consensus on speeding up gameplay a bit, makes sense I wasn't sure if the added suspense was worth it or not, I'll play around till it feels right.
I'm going to try to keep working on this guy to make it more complete (though of course my LD submission stands as is), adding sound, improving menus to include instructions, making more levels and more types of objects for more variety to the puzzles.
Thanks you all for playing!

I've always fantasized about impregnating an entire planet... thank you for helping me live this dream

Get's tedious on larger levels when the asteroid moves so slow. You should up the speed by a significant margin or make a fast forward option.

Nice mechanic and gravity effects, its a little bit shooter, little bit puzzle. It does get tedious on larger levels though, as others have said. Overall, nice entry.

Nice, sort of like Angry birds space. Felt the asteroids moved a little slowly, but a nice puzzle game. Great work -

I love physics puzzles so I loved this. Great job.

I found the game quite fun. The core mechanic seems good and I'm sure can be expanded on in many interesting ways. I would like to see the speed of the asteroids speed up significantly. Why are they so slow anyway? Since they leave a trail it's not necessary to watch them fly by. Looking forward to playing a future version of this game!
