The sun is exploding! Launch your spaceship from planet to planet and keep ahead of it for as long as you can.

A side scrolling "race the screen" game with just one control - launching your spaceship. Time your launches carefully to land you on another planet, and hop from planet to planet to stay alive for as long as you can. Fancy flying such as using another planet's gravity to slingshot you to a safe landing, or narrowly avoiding meteors, earns you big bonus points.

Press SPACE or CLICK to launch.

+, - and M control volume.

P to pause, Esc quits from pause screen.

Terrible gravity

There should be some notable way to tell which planets have high gravity, and which have barely any. Size, spin speed, colour, art style, giant glowing circles, background "air" colour. Anything. But no, to me, it seems completely random.

Also, ship upgrades would be amazing. Like, boosts to save me from falling into the abyss, landing rope to pull me towards planets, extra oxygen surplies, science upgrades for; Sun-slowing black holes, space-station creation, re-fuel stations, and nukes to blow up planets I was just on (Would give a speed boost and slow the sun down).

Power-ups for speed, slowing the sun, generating new planets (Slow travelling asteroids?), more oxygen or extra tools.

It would all be fun.

I've not completed the game, so I don't know if this is already implented or not;
Levels. End each level with a "Space warm" into the next solar system, and you can basically restart from level one but with all your upgrades and new planets, yeah?

And something that is much needed. Custom Spaceships. I'd love to be able to make my rocket pink.
