Space Lasso

by jrkirby - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Welcome to Space Lasso! The object of the game is to connect as many planets as you can before they go hurtling off into deep space. Click and drag to crate a lasso on a planet, and release on another planet to connect the two. Keep adding planets to your network as long as you can. Good Luck.

It looks a bit like a physics engine demonstration, but it was fun to play! Quite literally "connected worlds" here :)

Neat how you can tie chains of planets instead of strictly the star. I got over 24 at a time to orbit the star. It then dropped to 12 and I could keep adding planets to planets, but the star grouping was way off screen.

Hi there. This is lots of fun. I would probably like to see it in fullscreen and with friendly collision detection around planets - mainly so could play for longer without having to be any better with mouse... Nice music. Good fun toy!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
