I didn't really understand what I was doing, the game started and I died, THEN I saw the controls (needs to be the other way around really), but when I did know the controls, I realised you could teleport, but only once, then you get sucked in, couldn't seem to recover from it.  Good try dude, but could use some balancing and instruction :)

I'm definitely getting the feeling that the instructions were not sufficient. I was trying to go minimalist, but didn't make it minimalist enough haha. you CAN teleport multiple times, but it is on a cooldown indicated by the color of your orb. Thanks for the feedback, I'm going to make changes and publish a v2 at the end of the month :)

Not quite sure what the goal is here.  Apears that your orbiting a black hole, but can just fly away and off the screen.

Developer

The flying away offscreen was something I didn't have time to stop, sorry. The score is displayed after you die, but I suppose you never made it that far because of the whole off-screen thingy. oops

It took me a while to figure out the concept behind the game, but is is quite original, I like the idea! Graphics are very minimalistic, but they fit the game well. In the game over screen, there are the controls, which is good, but I wish the actions would be written above the keys. Nice little game. 

Developer

Ill definitely add the actions over the keys like you said, and I'll make the death screen appear on launch as well. Thanks for playing!
