Run From the Sun

Author Comments

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.

Help the play button isn't working! D:

If you were leaving colonies that rebuild your ship on the last planet you visited after falling off, instead of just teleporting there, it would be much more satisfying. Neat nonetheless.

Cool Game Bro

A solid game, and certainly addictive

great game! a few things for next time though:
boosters to help steer in flight
an award called "Alien Hater" given to anyone who smashed into ten UFO's
upgrade panel with things like "bio-dome" that gives you more oxygen time or things like boosters.
a money system
more ships
super-meteors that can destroy planets, making more meteors, and are harder to avoid because they are huge
"death-breath planets" that blacken a portion of the o2 bar, reducing your oxygen until you land on a planet that is not a "death breath" planet. they could be black or have a skull on them.
difficulty changer
upgrade that gives you auto-lazers that destroy anything that can damage you besides the sun, but has limited ammo and the ability to turn it off.
bigger planets have bigger gravitational field/pull, but rotate faster
smaller planets/moons that turn slower, but have a weaker magnetic field/smaller magnetic field
once again, great game.
