(UPDATE: Thanks for reviews. See below the response to critical control system)
Game Goal: Feed the Sun with falling stars to grow and light the world.
Controls: All the keyboard
Tutorial: Follow the instructions when select a new game. You will need to do the actions to go the next tutorial page. Don't worry, they're short and easy.

With this I tried to create a new different game experience based on the use of full keyboard. It's more than possible that not everybody will like this game, but once you get the controls of the game, you will be immersed in a great universe for a while.

Again, thanks to the great work of Ximo Ferrer with awesome art and Daniel Martin for the beautiful sound melodies.

(UPDATE: Keyboard controls issue)
I designed this game based in my knowledge of typing with the keyboard. I remember when my mother imposed me to go the typing class when I was 12 years old. Now I'm 31 and I must agree that my mother was right to do this. I understand that for people who has not this knowledge it would be terrible controls, but I have choosen the most natural control for people who knows to type with two hands on the keyboard. Sorry, but I'm not going to change the control system, it's the core part of the game design.

(UPDATE 2: I have been thinking about it... and although I don't like this decision, I have enable an alternative control with ARROW KEYS (I feel to have sold my soul to the evil :(

(TRICK)
The sun has memory, if you press the keys of the letters you see in the screen, the sun will remember. I want to say, you don't have to wait to catch a falling star to press a new key, could be said that is some kind of combo.

(UPDATE 3): Really, thanks to everybody for the feedback, in the last update(soon will be available) I have repaired the multiple apparition of the same letter in the screen.

mmm, I found a fun bug

This game is a pretty neat idea. I'm not going to include the bug in this review, PM me for it, and I don't want it fixed. Because it is really useful when you have the auto-destructo power-up active.

Hm...

Interesting, but the only real problem I had was the keyboard control. It looked like it had promise if only it were easier to move! The arrow keys were grateful, but as you insightfully realised, that meant you only had one hand to type. Now while this isn't bad for anyone who can touch type, it does have a bit of a speed problem so 'pros' can't get the scores they need. However, the major flaw was the lack of ability to set your own controls. Shift, enter, space and backspace were confusing as hell because they were in such vastly different areas and it took loads of practice to instantly recall which button moved you in which direction. It wasn't worth the trouble of memorising, and I honestly don't know if there's a solution to that, but it was the major flaw of the game.

It has potential, but sorry, it's just not worth it.
