creative idea but to be honest there are a lot of games that are similar to this

It held my interest enough to finish it. However it only took me a few minutes so it's much too simple.

The pros:
*Nice and wacky graphics. Reminds me of Monty Python which is always a plus.
*Mostly straight forward physics which eliminates guess work. In a puzzle like this you should be able to figure out what you need to do before you do anything.

The cons:
*Although this is a logic puzzle it turns into a hit and miss game on account of the timing. It's not really a matter of skill like it should be, but kind of arbitrary and down to luck a lot of the time which means:
*Level design could use a lot of tweaking in places or
*Physics could use a bit of tweaking
*It's too short - but this means it held my interest. If it were any longer it would get boring and tedious.
*Too few interactive element types. I counted 2. 1) the wind cloud, 2) the stars. The thunder cloud is not interactive.

Summary: Not a new game concept, but nice graphics. Could do with a bit of tweaking to make it more accurate and could use a lot more types of interactive elements and levels. All in all not a bad effort. 3,5 with the half star extra on account of the graphics.

Nice game! I saw something similar to this a while a while ago, but with regular balls or blobs instead of stars and planets. This is atmospheric in a whole different way, and the graphics are made to look both realistic and creative. The ambient music fits right in. It's a nice idea for a game, and a nice twist to that idea. Keep it up!


i didn't really know what to expect. The graphics were kind of weird, but I started to like them more as I played. The music on the night stages is pretty good, I prefer it to the day stages song. As far as the gameplay, it was pretty easy, but was still entertaining. Overall, this wasn't the most original game, but the graphics and music were different than I am used to, which is a good thing.

It was pretty good, just a bit simple.
