Hm, seems you had a lot of problems here, but I think the idea has a lot of potential. The game would slow down a lot when you press the button, and I didn't really see the point of changing the shape of the planet. The controls as you said were difficult, and perhaps you should have focused on that some more. With some more work this could be really cool.
I would also really appreciate it if you checked out my game, thanks :)
