As a cosmic horror from deepest space, you're determined to wipe out all life on Earth. Launch your extra-terrestrial weapons towards an unsuspecting world, from any angle you choose.

Position the hand around the earth with the mouse, click to start aiming with the mouse, click again to launch.

A short game made in just 1 weekend, as part of the Global Game Jam 2011, in between working on Detective Grimoire 2. Catherine, our background artist, even joined us and helped make this game!

Well...

I really don't know how to say this...

Well, it was a time waster, but it just ain't good enough. It could have a lot more to it, like... Desroying Earth itself? And the destruction effects were not really good, I mean - they just bounce off. Really? Bounce off? They should at least explode!

Well lets conclude this with the projectiles you fire at Earth. They're just... Wrong! The Moon is clearly not as small as it is here, and how could you possibly hold and control such an unstable element such as a Black Hole?

Sorry, this game is good, but doesn't deserve 2nd front page place. :(

Man...

The gameplay is extremely solid! Very original and very fun!

I'd have to say the art is amazing , very nice work!

At first i though it was an underrated submission , but reading through the reviews , they were right , actually.

At first , it would be nive to have some upgrades , or maybe different planets.

And it would be nice if you would get money , and you'd have to buy the steroids by yourself , instead of beeing one after another one..

And it would be awesome if you could destroy the planet itself. Instead of only it's surface.

This is one of those games that have an extremely solid and original gameplay , but fails to offer more.

Newgrounds had a lot of these fun arcadey games. But it's time to move on.

Now you can do much more with flash ,and this game has a huge talent , just not enoungh content.

Omnipitant!

Far too short. Maybe add some levels and destructive things?

Too Easy...

I got an S on the second try, this need more weapons, more planets (or a bigger Earth), and more weapons. Although, this wasn't a waste of time.

fun, could've been better

i do like destroying stuff, even more so without worrying about pesky time limits and irritating AI resisting its destruction.

but theres a couple things that bothered me...

for one, all the items are the same size, that just didnt seem right.

second, all the items behaved the same way as far as i could tell, except the comet, which just exploded immediately upon impact... the black hole just vanished and the monster's hand penetrated the earth for some reason, maybe that was a glitch?

third, it was kinda short, it'd be nice to have more stuff to throw, also, make the planet bigger, maybe? it'd be awesome to have insane upgrades, like throwing a sun, or even a red giant at the earth, or other planets, even... a whole galaxy? XD

it'd be nice if you took this game a step further and expanded on it more, i'd love to see more cosmic hell unleashed. :D
