Ok. So.
I wanted to like it from start to finish, but just got more and more annoyed. The ground is a barren wasteland unless you're going mach-speed and you just want to go straight up. But that I could deal with without any problems.
What annoyed me was the five million hands that caught and stopped you mid-air.
If you go too fast horizontally, you can basically just press the "Stop" button or throw a six sided dice and only one number saves you. I could not find an upgrade to make me immune against this before I managed to complete the game. As soon as you've built up some speed, a hand grabs you.
At one point it was so bad that the hands grabbed me 5 seconds into the launch 4 times in a row. When you need 800k for just a new cannon or weapon, this almost made me wanna instantly quit the game.

But otherwise, it's ok. It's a more kid-friendly version of Toss the Turtle.

I do realise this game is 10 years old, but I do not bother with such details. I'm not expecting an update, rather just stating an issue that could be fixed in future "toss games".


like the Christmas look to d game


It's sorta funny, but there have been other games like this one before. The music is one of the things that bugs me.

I'd recommend you something, about the speed meter, it's better to only measure the horizontal velocity, not the velocity conting the vertical component, well, we know that it doesn't matter at an advanced game, but still.


Awesome game, but one bug. If you use the Nuclear Blast power up as soon as the magnet captures you, your sprite stays in the magnet while the screen and everything still moves forward. Your basically invisible afterwords and no trap affects you.
