Pretty good game. Level 28 is awful though because you have planets which are near the same color as the background, although they're not exactly 100% the same. But you basically have camo planets. Got all the way up to there then lost all my lives because of that. You can probably get through if you pick up enough shields or have enough lives.

There was also another level earlier on which was bad because blue planets on a purply-blue background, but not nearly as bad as that Level 28.

The delay behind where the ship is and where the curser is drives me insane in this game. This game really depends on how far you can get with your first life. If you die later on, it is nearly impossible to get back to where you were on your first life (aka harder to get the multipliers at faster planet speed). The other thing that bothers me is how the powerups are temporary. The small/large shouldn't go away after a certain amount of time like the shield does.

PixelWhiskersGames responds:

Thank you for the constructive criticism! Working on fixing the spaceship lag. The game is meant to have a touch of challenge in later levels, but it is possible to regain the edge after dying if you're lucky. The reason that the small/large power is temporary is because the large effect is game-breakingly crippling at later levels and it wouldn't be fair to make one permanent and the other not permanent. We hope you give the game another shot after the update!

This game is cool i like it the only thing is missing is the highscore next to the medals
could you put that there pls so the game gets more players.

PixelWhiskersGames responds:

Thanks for the advice and 4 star review! Currently working out the kinks of the new version, should be posted soon, hope you enjoy.

Is there any way to cheat?... any at all.

PixelWhiskersGames responds:

Hey, thanks for the 5 star review!

There isn't a way to cheat that we're aware of, but we hope you had fun anyway.

This is a pretty good avoid game and the music and art are pretty cool. I also like the arcade feel to the whole game. It gets pretty monotonous after about 15 minutes but it is really good. The music is fantastic and so is the art, they both add to the whole arcade feel. The negative power up system is really cool as well. Truly the only problem is that it gets boring after a while and if it retained my attention longer I would have given it 4 stars.

PixelWhiskersGames responds:

Thanks for the positive review! Unfortunately, the nature of the game is rather repetitive, but we hope you enjoyed your time playing regardless.
