Star Prober

by GarrickWinter - Mini LD 49 Entry

Star Prober is a one-button game about a space probe traveling through space, trying not to run out of power or be struck by asteroids.

Two things can kill you - running out of battery, and getting hit too many times. Battery always depletes, and can only be replenished by orbiting stars (which explode fairly quickly, so watch out!). Armor is depleted by getting struck by asteroids or supernova, and when armor reaches 0, the probe is destroyed.

You can click when the probe is orbiting a planet or star to launch it back into space; that's all you can do!

I've been splitting this weekend between Mini Ludum Dare on the one hand and recovering from a few rather stressful weeks on the other, so I set my sights a bit lower this time. I still quite like the result, though it does need some tweaking!

Good luck!

Nice game with a simple mechanic... could be a very relaxing mobile game.

I like the smooth silky feel... the graphics are great, maybe some gentle background music... Benson Arizona anyone ?
