At the moment, the moon is overpowered. Still trying to balance the game!

Alright, it should be a little more balanced now. Pirates take longer to respawn, and the "moonlets" now have lower gravity, and its easier to break the anchors.

Great graphics and effects! And a surprising idea. I had some problems with the controls, because I have only a trackpad on my notebook. So on playing the pirates, I have to use the left hand to control the cursor. It makes the game much more challenging for me. I would have thought that the check boxes at the top allow to switch the controls to wsad, but it always jumps back to controller1 when I click on play as pirate.

Thanks =)
Ya, I had debated if switching that setting should switch the controls or not. But that is a good idea. Uploaded to:

Pretty interesting game! I enjoyed playing it! I included it in 11 of my Mini LD #58 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

Thanks Jupiter! I like your reactions. We're trying to work on the balance still so it's less frustrating to play against the AI.
