This is my homage to Missile Command. Use the mouse to aim your missiles and destroy incoming projectiles. Be careful not to destroy yourself. How poignant.

Very simplistic game. However it is kind of fun, for a moment. I like the idea. I would like to be able to upgrade my planet when i die, rather than start over... from scratch.

andyjdavis responds:

Upgrades are an interesting idea. Perhaps the number of missiles you can fire at once (or the time between missiles) could be capped with that limit slowly creeping up as the game progresses.

Doesn't load. This game hurts more that actual blue balls!

andyjdavis responds:

That's weird. What browser are you using? I'd love to get to the bottom of it.

I liked it more without crosschair :/ Now I dont see the comet when i shoot, its tough to aim.

andyjdavis responds:

I've switched to a less prominent crosshair. Hopefully that helps.

I really liked this game. It was very simple, and really it's more about the blue ball destroying itself. Every time I died was because I accidently kept shooting at the explosion. It's a good little game that kept me entertained for a bit.

Fail. If you explode the missiles, even if they are close to the earth, you still die.

andyjdavis responds:

That's odd. Are you able to say what browser you're using so I can do some more testing?
