cool game, you also need to be fast to defeat the Ai. it took me a while to finish but I did it

Cool! I'm glad someone except me has patience to beat the AI. AI is simple but defeating it needs a little practice, congratz!  I've recorded my 5:0 AI defeat (I know how it works + I gained some skills during testing :)  Check it out

My strategy is to shot a bullet clockwise near him to deplete his shields and after he's without a shield I shoot multiple bullets counter-clockwise.

Anyway, playing with human is much more fun, try it if you can :).

That's a cool little game, really hard to keep track of all the bullets and not screw yourself over xD I did get the hang of it after a few rounds though! Nice little game dude!

Thanks! Yeah, sometimes it could be a little hectic :) You don't have to shoot a lot though. It should be possible to win only with a few (or even one) shots. But it's more likely when you play agains a human.

I really liked the game play loop and is a very interesting concept. If you could make this into a mobile game I believe it could turn out very fun and successful. I am fine with the graphics as there isn't much more you could do in my opinion. However, the point of no return part is pretty hard to see imo.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. To be honest I like this simple graphics style, it's very intentional and I'm quit happy with it :) 

As for the theme - I thought that use of theme is so obvious it doesn't need explanation. You are trapped in a gravity field of the black hole - you have passed the point of no return and you will be killed or crushed by the blackhole. Anyway thanks for info, I added it to the description (yeah, nobody reads it, I know :D )

graphics are basic but functional. gameplay loop is fully there.  was fairly easy to figure out the game play.

Thanks for trying it out! I'm glad the game worked (which is the the most important milestone of a great game :) Get a friend and try local multiplayer mode! :)
