Awesome game. Ended up with happy looking 'creature', probably it is corresponding to overall score, oh how bad I'm at 'driving' entire galaxy, but it feels awesome. Thank you for creating.

Hey @mintarcade, glad you liked it.  Yep what we ended up doing for the "score" was to set up the game end as scoring time it takes to complete the 4 arms.  So the slower, the smaller the new creature, and the faster - the higher the life form.

The audio is superb (I really would like to know what you did there), and the concept is really refreshing. The game was hard for me, and I think the colliders should've caught some of the essences in the back of the galaxy. Nonetheless, the concept was great and has a nostalgic feel to it. Kudos!

Hey @maorblu the galaxy does collect the stars in every direction.  For the audio, I found the music that had great strong pieces to it.  I cut the "hits" out of the music and then edited a good hit and a bad hit.  Since the hits are directly from the music they go really well with the background.  It's probably easier to play with a controller.  When I play with arrow keys on my laptop it is difficult for me(just because arrow keys are small) but arrow keys on my regular keyboard not so bad.

Hi.

Yes its working now.

nice game. 

the Environment makes me remember some classic games like galaga and arkanoid :)

But i always tend to push a button to speedup rotation, maybe you should add that :)

Also it took me a long time to finish the game due to my colorblindness, maybe changing the forms could help.

Developer

Great feedback.  Hadn't thought about colorblindness during the game jam.  Just trying to get the game done in the short period.   I like the idea of different forms for each collectible and it's relation to the arm.
