How does your game fit the theme?
You are the lone space pilot at ground control and you've been asked to catch the falling passengers of a runaway and out of control space station that is whirling to the ground. You'll have to wildly maneuver if you hope to catch as many astronauts as possible because each time one latches onto your ship your craft becomes more unstable. Buckle up and good luck!​

Incredibly polished for a 48h jam entry! The gameplay loop is simple, but fun. The controls are difficult, as per theme, but managable. Having a limited number of people you can hold before you start losing any control was a great idea, too. Overall, it’s a great entry, I loved it!

Wow, this is a really complete game for 48 hours! Seems like something I would see in an arcade in another time, great job!

Great work on the art and sound, very well presented and a pleasure to play. Loved the weight system and the risk / reward dynamic it created. I only wish I had a little better control over the ship when at full speed, perhaps a brake button to pull off those tighter turns when I'm unladen?

Anyway, absolutely killer game, spend a lot of time with it. Congrats on completing it!

That is a great idea to enable better control for our space pilots, I’ll see what we can do. It means a lot to hear you had fun, thanks Chinwizard!
