This is a game we made about space and gravity. Place gravity wells near gas giant planets to suck the matter from their surface. Stream these particles through space to fill collection rings to solve each puzzle.

Please enjoy the game and soak up the atmosphere, if anything I've made could be labeled as soothing, I'd say it's this ;)

UPDATE:
Awesometown frontpage'd!

Level transitions are quicker now and the thumbnails for player levels work. A few bug fixes too, keep reporting bugs if you find them!

DARN lol

TheOnlyGate beat me to pointing out that glitch :P oh well. Fun game. sometimes kinda frustrating. I think i know a few ways to fix that though, maybe some things u can improve in this version (or add in later versions).

Maybe a more in depth tutorial? It gets kinda frustrating trying to figure out how everything works. Maybe just a few hints before starting about placing and how it will effect how the particles come out and move (like i was trying to figure out for awhile how placing the well further from the particle 'beam' causes the particles to turn sharper when i would think placing the well closer to the beam would cause it to have a greater effect on the pull (since ud think the force would be stronger the closer you get to the object).

Also mention that you can delete wells after they are made to lower your "par score" as well as reduce waste (because it was awhile before i knew you could do that as a tactic to reduce waste until i ran into the level with a par score of 0 for wells).

Along those same lines, there seems to be some time limit the collection rings have to be filled for, maybe have some sort of countdown until level ends? Because I don't know really when i can stop "pulling" particles in levels with multiple collection rings because i dont know how long it will be until the level ends. Multiple occasions i had all collection rings filled and i would stop particles and instead of ending the level, the collection rings would start powering down and i would have to send particles again (causing waste). Or maybe just have it that once all rings are filled, all particles on the map are not considered waste or something like that.

Maybe mention in the instructions that the pause screen can be used to place wells, which can help cut down on time and also potential waste of just trying to line it up.

Also it needs a restart button badly (and if it does have one that im not aware of, put that in instructions too lol).

I enjoyed the game. nice physics game.

Love it, but...

I love the way you used multiple objects that are affected, not just one or two. I did, however, find a glitch which may need your attention. If you press pause and you have a gravity well on screen, you can double click it as many times as you like and get an infinite amount. *shrug* Even with that "bug", it's still pretty good. n_n

Creativity Abounds

I've spent countless hours of over the past few years playing flash games when I'm bored or simply have nothing else better to do. I can honestly say that it is rare to find a game that is different and creative amongst the massive hoards of flash submissions on Newgrounds, and because of this, games that are truly unique are not only appreciated, but also admired.

This game drew me in an instant (no pun intended) and had me wanting more. A few times, I found myself just moving the gravity wells around to make swirls and designs with the gas and almost forgetting about the game itself. When I did actually play the game though, the game had just the right amount of difficulty to it: a level that lets some be challenged and others enjoy.

I would have given this an 8, but giving it a 9 just seemed more right. Now, the reason as to why is because I would like to have seen just a few more particles and ones that weren't so pixilated. I know that that is the style of the game, but I just feel that this game could have been so much more breathtaking if there was greater detail. Now, that being said, I have nothing else to really say about what I didn't like.
Thanks for actually reading my whole review and I can't wait to see if you come out with an EON 2!

Thanks for the kind words :)

I honestly probably should have pushed the particle limit harder, but my laptop sucks and I was really worried about bad performance for people with old computers. If I do an EON 2, it will for sure be bigger and badder ;)
