Since it isn't obvious at first to everyone :
It's important to use multiple clicks to change the trajectory of your ships after the initial launch.
Scoring is based on hitting the bulls eye of the target, collecting the coin, and getting par or under clicks for the current level.
There is a downward pull for gravity except on the summer season levels.

I worked a long time on this game with two friends of mine, and had a lot of fun making it and testing it. Hopefully you will all enjoy the game as much as I did making it!

Edit: Oh wow! Thanks for the feature on front page! I'm sorry to those that don't appreciate the gameplay physics, we were trying to make a fun and challenging game, we figured that following physics entirely would have made for boring gameplay- but we will try better next time!

Great

It was a very well put together game. I enjoyed it, although I found it quite boring after a while.

Very Addicting. For me anyway.

This game is amazing. Very challenging, controls are spot on, and the art is very original. I was worried it was going to get repetitive, then I came to the bouncy and gravitational pull planets. Very nice. I look forward to a sequel and possibly some new level challenges. Might I suggest asteroids? Now Im going to try and get 3 stars on level 10 of winter.

Thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed our game!
I like the idea of an asteroids challenge level... I will have to remember that when I work on the sequel.

Very cool

I really like the idea, the control is spot on which is why it's so hard, it's hard to think of where the ship is going and where to put the mouse to make it go where you. Anyone complaining just wants a game that plays it for them which is just stupid.

Also, is there any way to download the music?

AndyBrown responds:

Thank you very much for your review! Sorry for taking so long to reply, but I've been waiting for the music to get approved on NG's, two of the songs are now uploaded and credited on the game's page, the other two should be up once they get uploaded and approved.
