In this game you need to protect helpless Earth from giant asteroids and devastating comets using automatic turrets. The gameplay of this game is simple. You've got to purchase turrets and drop them on the orbit, aiming at the advancing space bodies. If you destroy an asteroid or comet then you earn some money to buy more powerful defensive weapons. If Earth is destroyed then your game is over.

Controls: Mouse Use cursor keys for moving on map. 1-5 keys to quick place defence ships (don't work in fullscreen mode)


Good gob, but...

good job, but it gets boring with time and lacks a little control

needs tweaking

the autocrat tries to fire through my other turrets and kills them(anyone looking for tips, here's one for u: keep the autocrat(rocket laucher) farther from earth than anything else) and the Bastion is almost completly useless, so why is it the most expensive turret? I expected a comet-killer...all-in-all it's a nice game, but it could use some fine tuning

i like it

the bastion is just a blocker i dont like the rocket thing it kills my other turrets

Ok this is what you must do (by my opinion)

1)Make the earth spin,IF possible make it change weather and stuff.
2)Make the earth take visual dmg from Inpacts.Let us see our homeplanet destoyed (assuming this is the Earth our mother planet.)
*The 2 above give a more emotional touch,give some seriousness to your game.
3)Since i use turrets in space,then i want to be able to move them,since they are in space i can move them,i have the technology.Let this be a bit strategy.
4)Make the turrets SMALLER,so i can stack the hell up.If you want you can add layers to space,Above/Center/Below just to give the filling of SPACE.

I dont know if i want upgrades,but they never hurt.

Oh,and i want MEDALS,i am addicted.

Okay, this game has a lot of potential. Overall I like it, the graphics aren't terrible and the controls are okay. The list of problems turned it from a 10 to a 7 though. The turrets don't prioritize targets properly, they'll go after something almost out of range instead of something coming straight at them. At least 2 comets can come at you early on and gut Earth's life bar. Once you put down the Autocrat you can't even move it, making it tactically worthless since it's clearly designed to combat only comets. The healing one has no armor to speak of and even tiny asteroids can annihilate it in a one fell swoop. As others have mentioned the Bastion does nothing that I have been able to notice so I'm just going to guess that it's a bug that needs worked out and it should be something that's clearing away the field when placed. And I'm picky enough to actually wonder the story behind all this, the only thing I can think of that would pull this many asteroids to Earth would be someone trying to turn the planet into a gravity well that can only be equivalent to a super massive black hole.
Anyways, the game is okay and worth at least one play though.
