One of the best entries I've seen so far. Loved the graphics and audio. Gameplay was great.

Quite short, but the concept is amusing.

I love the mechanic of this... especially once the purple things come along and you're playing with gravity. Absorbing!

I have a real soft spot for gravity based puzzlers like this. Nicely made, and some funny sound effects.

i love how you introduce the mechanics gradually, blow up the earth; k, sometimes things move; k, force fields eat your satellites; k, and so forth-- it felt very natural.
i loved the SFX also, :P

The level sometimes ends way too early. I would recommend a manual reload.
Apart from that, well done.

Really good concept. One minor thing: The game can be over before the last Satellite is able to hit the planet (level4).

The game makes me restart while my third space thingy is still flying... Kinda annoying but amazing game over all!

Good concept. Would make a great touchscreen game.

I really like the way the capsules tumble and break apart on explosion. For some reason I would beat the first level and it would keep reloading the first level again. Interesting game though, level 2 was too hard for me.

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.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
