Overall very good game, but zooming-in-out would have been nice.

One of the interesting games I played here sofar. The gameplay very unique, I liked it. But I think, you should work on blanace a little.

Neat game, I would have liked to see more planets and obstacles like moons, black holes etc.

You were right , similar concepts we came up with. Pretty fun once you got the hang of it :P suggestion would be to reverse the scroll wheel as most games have the scroll back as the zoom out and not the in like yours

Really cool concept! It took a bit to get use to the effect gravity had on the ships but once I got it down those planets were mine! Good job!

@TeamOnBack heh, yeah i figure that - but I was using my new mac for the build, and I didn't think about the reversed scroll on macs :D

Great take on the theme and nicely built. I found it was difficult to get the small planets right, but well balanced anyway. Good effort!

This was pretty fun. Was a bit confusing after I moved the camera and found I couldn't shoot anymore, but I quite liked it. You should get bonus points for missing a planet, but hitting it on the way back :)

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.
