Really great art! I loved the particle effects you had for the sun and the asteroids! Controls were really good, and it felt nice to fly around...

Great work!!

nice

Hey! The game looks great. At first the controls felt weird, but then I got used to it. Cool that big objects have their own gravity field. The art is very good, too.

Excellent job!

Nice funny game , I like the sun effects and how moves the spaceship.. the music works well also.

Good job.

My game is a casual game if you wanna rate is https://misterm.itch.io/mixtape-match , Thanks

Dude, sick game! It feels quite polished :)

My positive points:

  • The art style, visual effects & UI look great
  • The controls & feel of the game are sweet
  • Feels polished

My negative points:

  • An ambient space sound would make the game feel more space-ish
  • The concept of rewind could be better, I would think of something like shooting unavoidable asteroids to rewind them in time to avoid them for example

My suggestions:

  • Being able to keep flying in the propulsed in the same direction & fuel very limited would make the game more interesting in terms of trying to save as much fuel to make it

Overall really enjoyed playing it till the end, great work! :)

thats a really nice looking and polished game.

I actually did really like the movement and also the fact that bigger objects have their own gravity fields.

i definitly would play that game again. 

Maybe you should think about building that as a mobile game! As the only thing you can do is press one button right now, that shouldn't be too hard to do ;)


Good Job!

Cool game, and the art style is amazing. I would just suggest changing up the movement script slightly, so that instead of players holding down mouse to move and letting go to stop, it's just hold down your mouse to increase your velocity and you can only stop by boosting in the opposite direction that you're travelling. This would align much closer to irl physics and also make the game a lot more fun to play.

Thanks. Sounds like interesting idea. I'll try making game this way to see if it works :)

Submitted

Had a lot of fun playing this one, very nice idea, would be cool if the asteroids had a bit of gravity pulling you towards them

Submitted

Wow, the graphics look really nice and the concept is something ive not seen before

Submitted

I'm so curious how you made the sun? It looks really cool.

Developer

Developer

Thanks!

This is a great game! It was a fairly interesting take on the theme. It looks fairly polished. It was fairly fun though I will admit I’m pretty bad at the game. I really like the graphics and audio.

Developer

Thanks. Yeah maybe game is too hard. Which parts was harders?

Submitted

I would say I’m bad at the game in general. It might be just be me who’s finding it hard. I don’t really know what parts are harder.
