Planet Swinger

by Nyyman - Jam Entry

Defend Earth by moving around space and swinging your red slave planet like a sledge connected to you by the power of science and electricity. Defeat aliens in exploding fashion by swinging the slave planet right into them! Avoid damage to the mother planet.

Unzip the .zip folder and launch the program from Planet Swinger.exe .

Use the arrow keys to move around. That's it. Try to survive as long as you can.

You can change the resolution of the game by editing the settings.json file with Notepad or equivalent editor.

Detailed list of credits included inside the zip folder in credits.txt file.

Enjoy and rate the game! The game might still have few bugs, so please report them as well. The game should run on every computer, but if it doesn't please notify us.

The game is not very fancy at the current state but you've made something original here and easy to play, which is in itself something very cool. Plus, it's very well theme related :)

It was super fun! I love bouncing the slave planet off myself. Nicely done.

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.
