Nice Idea, You need to tell people the controls. E.g. Use mouse to draw a line from the world on the left to the world on the right, that avoids the hazards. It's also very hard.

Very hard, some idea of the controls at first would have been a good addition. I got to level 8 but couldn't get any further.

When I first opened this up, I had no Idea what to do. I was clicking, dragging, and pressing keys but couldn't make anything happen ( I even tried going fullscreen). I saw some of the comments below but didn't see any planets. That is when I thought to maximize the browser and, tada, there were the 2 planets! Seems like a pretty hefty resolution requirement. Maybe Firefox is the problem? I don't know, but I figured it out. Quite an interesting concept and pretty difficult too.

Yes! I finally managed to connect 2 worlds, and oddly I feel a great sense of accomplishment.

Man it's hard to connect teh worlds! I only managed it three times. I like how you have to collect the world's key to unlock it first, kinda feels like my way to the car in the morning ;)

A unique idea, If I had to criticise it would be the collision zones for the planets and keys are a bit too small, but nice entry.

Such a great idea. I was kind of addicted for a few minutes. think I got to level 10 xD lol. I suggest putting up some controls! like the others have suggested.

Not bad overall, It was a little confusing at first what to do, I didn't know I had to collect the key to unlock
The asteroids add a nice challenge, but I find myself waiting around too much for the right moment to connect

Aug 26, 2014 @ 3:52am

Not bad at all!

My high score was 13. It's tough! Seems a bit random, but it's still fun.

Wow, that is extremely difficult, but as others said it was really rewarding when beating levels :)

Hi there. Needs instructions in game. Very difficult.

Aug 26, 2014 @ 10:25am

Liked the concept but found it really difficult.

Neat idea

Tricky at first, but actually pretty engaging.

Lovely idea, imagine it would be even more fun on a touch screen.

Quite hard but I enjoyed it ! gg

I didn`t understand the controls at first,but got the hang of it pretty fast x)

I just wished for some levels with less asteroids at the beggining,it was pretty hard :x

but the visuals are nice, and mechanics are easy to grasp. nice job! :)

Really hard, I wonder if this is easier on a touch device?

Aug 26, 2014 @ 6:27pm

Thanks everybody for the comments so far! yes instructions might had been useful :).. also the 100% width+height webpage seems to cause problems in some browsers..

nice and hard game, took a while to figure out what to do and the controls.

Aug 26, 2014 @ 10:12pm

Good starting idea but the execution is ... a problem, you could do so much better with this concept

We managed once. We are so proud! :p
Seriously, very good idea, but difficulty is not well adjusted

Difficulty starts hard and doesn't seem to change, but otherwise great!

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
