Use the left and right arrow keys to navigate away from the purple triangles and green polygons and catch the stars as the fall.

I really appreciate the feedback guys! Thanks a lot! This is my first attempt at flash game so I will definitely take the feedback seriously and continue to work on it!

I second that

ObeyBunny is right, for a game which is actually functional, this has potential.

Maybe swap the hitpoint numbers with hearts or red crosses, give the background something more to do than simple black.

As you can see, there are tons of possible variations how to improve this game. I'll give you a 3/5 and a 6/10, because a functional game is a good start and I'd like to motivate you to enhance this.

This would make a great mini game.

For a functional game that is not spam, I'll start you off with a base score of 5.

What I like:
+1 The loading time was fast
+1 The controls were smooth without being slippery. I could easily maneuver between the shapes

What I didn't like:
I didn't see any true flaws. Everything worked.

If you treat this game as a stand alone:
1. You could add music
2. You could add sound effects for every time I hit a shape.
3. You could add a small story that explains why I (the player) need to capture stars. (The story doesn't have to be anything grand. Maybe I'm piloting a space ship that needs to hit enemy alien spacecraft and avoid asteroids. In this case, you could have a short series of text blocks explaining why I'm piloting a space ship and why there is a war between us and these aliens)

This would be an excellent mini-game (if you were to change the graphics a little)
