I made this game after watching a trailer of No manĀ“s sky and impose myself a rule: dont make a shooter game.

Thanks to Wren (Alexander Petrov Sanchez) for this awesome music.

The game's ok, but...

-How am I supposed to deal with the aliens when I can't shoot and can't outrun them?

-I need to be able to buy fuel from the space station. By the time I extract elements from the nearby planet, the aliens find me. The resources regenerate too slowly for it to be an effective refueling station.

-Faster repair would be nice, especially when you're at full throttle heading back to the space station to try to get the aliens off your tail.

This game definitely has potential, tho.

Great concept, soothing game that I enjoyed playing. Some thoughts / rough edge observations:

- Gelbo's blue units don't seem to add to blue resources when extracting despite removing blue resources from planet Gelbo..

- Why can I not hold C to refuel beyond 100 fuel even when my denominator is greater?

- Besides being a mechanic to avoid "shooting," why does the ship leave footprints in space, and why do these track marks damage enemies?

- Is it intentional that the speed upgrade / max fuel of 250 gets nerfed when you purchase the other spaceship upgrades? I now travel slower again and have a lower max fuel of 150... After beating the game I came back and was able to apparently re-buy most of the upgrades multiple times without any impact. This seems unintentional an unintuitive.

Good game, I enjoyed playing, thank you for sharing.

You need the ability to pause so I can go to the john without fucking dieing. Other than that, not bad.


jupitron responds:

Sorry zoltek, ill fix it!

The concept is great, so I give you a star for that, but poor gameplay. Annoying controls, I never liked rotating, random aliens and asteroid spawns that kill you, no health bars for the aliens so you never know when they'll die, no radar to keep track of anything, huge map but no clues to find those planets, IF you manage to kill the alien ships, 3 new ones appear, upgrades cost alot, finding enough B and getting back to your ship isn't possible, every time you die you have to start over, .... Could've been a great game,but many flaws :(
