Ooh, this is a fun little game! The level progression is nice, adding one planet each time. My tactic is always sacrificing planets from the start :)

Nice game ! I like how the planets look stupid and defenseless. Brought out the white knight inside of me.

Fun and challenging game! It would be more realistic if two asteroids destroy each other if they collide.

Great game, I guess there's no denying your game is based on the theme in some way ;)

@thanks to all ... Glad you enjoyed it as much i enjoyed it :)

@pxlcoder : "It would be more realistic if two asteroids destroy each other if they collide." .. honestly, somehow I forgot that ..Maybe later :)

@bazld: "My tactic is always sacrificing planets from the start :)" & @mess110 : "ok just chill in the corner".. After playing a bit i realize it could be exploited in these ways, but decided to not punish the players with those tactics :) .. Why block the paths the players might choose :) .. Let them have some fun employing their own ways ...

Hah, nice. I love the look of panic on the planets' faces. :D

At least once (level 2 I think?), the two remaining planets were no longer connected together (this made them easier to save, definitely.

Decent game this. Recon would be cool on a touch device

A little too literal, perhaps? But still fun. I found the smaller planets felt too slippery, always trying to keep a distance from the rest of the planets-- I suspect this was intentional, to prevent camping in the corner?

It's an alrighty game! I began getting bored, when it only said save 3, save 3, but then it said save 4! And gave me 6 planets! Liked the you saved another galaxy, and beat out the game remarks! Too

Good job!

Pretty fun. The game was a bit laggy for me.

Fun game, but the red orbs are a bit slow. I included it in part 18 of my Ludum Dare 30 Compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out :)

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.
