Click the letters flying through space, to make words. The longer and more difficult the word, the more points you'll pick up. It's not easy though. The letters swim and spin in the direction in which you move your mouse. So move toward a letter and it will dash away. It's all about carefully moving in the opposite direction, and then pouncing at the right moment.

Once you've wrangled your word, hit space to explode the letters, clearing your way through space. You'll have to be quick though, keep the amount of letters under 150 otherwise it's goodbye galaxy.

You'll need magnificent mouse control, a marvelous memory and a mind for anagrams to battle through this lexicon lark.

Right click for sound and quality settings.

Just fine

It is good...
The way you get the letters... yes... it's annoying, and it makes me feel i don't want to play it for long...
But most important thing...
Main Menu looks awesome...
I don't know if it's my computer, but this makes it a bit slow, and it's the very first game here in newgrounds that gets to do it...
I think it might be because of the Glow filters on the letters...
Try using just a white outline, that way more people will be able to play it...
Needs a pause menu...
So we are able to restart the game...

There's a little mistake you made:
Depth makes it feel awesome when moving, but some of the smaller ones pass over the bigger ones, as if they were closer than those...

It's a very good flash work anyways...

Your controls suck

This is just my opinion, but the method of getting letters is pretty clumsy and frustrating. The scrolling was slow, hard click on a letter, and it seems you always have to many vowels or the opposite in the field.

Not as complex as you make it out to be

But it's interesting- it's kind of original. Not too fun though.

challenging yet fun

kinda annoying sometimes you have to spend awhile looking for a certain letter, but other then that it was good ^^
