Interesting. On osx I cant test it because Im on windows.

Wow this game is really tough. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I keep dying right after going to the moon usually. Too many meteors (but maybe I just suck at this game)!

Good idea and kept me playing for like 10 minutes :) It only needs a bit more polishing.

Good concept, maybe it's too hard for me since I'm dying a lot xD

Well I agree with you. The game is really tough and I kinda want to be so. I decided to continue it and I will focus more on graphics from now on.

Found a new BUG: When you can upgrade the Turret don't press the upgrade button for too many times or it will shoot with 100 bullets per second and that might crash the game.

Defending Earth can be a tough job. :)
But was fun for a few minutes. Interface on the game screen could be more streamlined. Perhaps more like context buttons when selecting a planet?

I'm on OS/X. After the first game, clicking any main menu buttons causes the game to exit.

I played a few times. The idea is interesting but I find the game very difficult. Before I can explore even the moon for resources an astroid comes from a corner and annihilates Earth. The first turret doesn't give the player quite enough fire power to deal with threats while exploring what the game is about.

You did lots of work on the UI (I suppose coming from an ambitious idea!) but the game puts your under fire before you can explore it. Maybe auto targeting turrets will allow you to keep it relevant but allow you to explore the rest of the game you put together.

Hard game x) interesting idea. There is a bug with GUI when you click "explore planet"

bogdanmaier49 says ...
Aug 25, 2014 @ 9:32am

Lots of bugs apparently. I will try to do better next Ludumdare.

The cause is a messy code. :(

Some really nice concepts in here. (good explosion sound.. OW! ;-D ) Would be nice to see a Youtube vid of gameplay at some point as I'm not having much success.

Wow! Nice idea!

Aug 25, 2014 @ 9:48am

Nice idea I like it, but man it's hard :D I tried 5 times to get a gun on the moon, but there are too many meteorites :) Anyway this can be done as a full nice game :)

I'm loving this game, I'll definitely play some more. Haven't yet gotten farther than the Moon though

For some interesting reason I can't run mac os x version. I'll try on my windows machine later

It has some issues but I love the idea! With a bit more work on this I can see a pretty nice tower defense kind of game mixed with exploration.
Has potential.

I was reading turret info and some meteorite just destroyed all earth, that was epic. Added to favorites.

Aug 26, 2014 @ 9:57am

Fun concept. I blew up Earth :(

fleegle2000 says ...

I really like the concept! It's a bit buggy though - when I clicked "back to menu" after dying, the game shut down. I also had a bit of trouble figuring out what I was supposed to do, even after reading the intro screen.

Needs some polish but the concept is solid!

The game is not bad but there are many meteorites that do not let you relax

I cant test on MacOS =/ JUst not open

commodoreKid says ...
Aug 26, 2014 @ 7:47pm

It seems like it has a lot of placeholders but I think that's because of 48 hours time limit. Plus, it is hard because turret shoots at the position of asteroid where it was a few seconds ago. I could only buy the turret and couldn't survive longer. Idea is kind of cool though.

Great game, rather hard- I love the idea. I'm a little on the fence about the controls- I keep wanting to be able to pan the camera, but I didn't find any way to do so- At the same time I could see how that could easily become confusing.
Anyways, decent graphics, and a very good and unique idea. Good job.

Hardcare gamers understand this concep: EASY=BORING, CHALLENGING=FUN. AWESOME GAME!!

Easy to die here but the idea is nice. Like it

Nice use of 3d!!

ninjascript says ...
Aug 28, 2014 @ 4:13pm

Interesting. I like the idea but it would be nice to be able to zoom-in and out and/or rotate the camera. Sometimes those asteroids come in at angles that give you no time to react. Also, moving the camera to find other planets to explore means leaving all your other planets completely defenseless, and since the asteroids spawn so frequently that meant I just didn't explore those other planets. You should keep developing this, it's pretty impressive for 48 hours.

Nice Game! But it gets frustrating really fast because its a bit too hard. But even if it is frustrating I enjoyed it, Good Work :D

Awesome work! Would have liked to hear some music to go with all the pew pew! also: welcome to Ludum Dare :D

I like the idea but you should not make so hard at the beginning. Getting destroyed by meteors fast is frustrating. No chance to get to know the game. Your planets were awesome. Nice job.

Little but hard, but nice idea and graphics! Cool game.

vividhelix says ...
Sep 2, 2014 @ 2:24pm

Not sure how I did it, but I got to the victory screen (visited 5 planets and killed a bunch of asteroids). It was hard panning around to see the incoming asteroids though...

Can't test it with OS/X :(

Quite fun and interesting.
Fun with the graphics.
They are real good looking...

Difficult game, but a cool idea. I could never get very far, but I did enjoy the graphics. The sound effects were well done! Good job.

Tried exploring the moon and bam, it blew up. Then I pressed the home button after wandering around the galaxy and the Earth blew up. Dammit :D. Maybe there was a rogue meteorite I didn't catch in time.

Interesting concept, but takes a bit too much time to really get going. Also micromanaging the meteorites is a lot of work, maybe one of the upgrades could install an AI targeting system or something ;).

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.
