Web version seems to have issues with music, consider trying the downloadable version on itch.io.


My submission for Game Of 2020 game jam. You can also play it on on itch.io


Dodge all asteroids, collect bonuses and escape from the Moon by reaching required distance in one run.


Controls:


Rocket automatically moves up and down. You can only change direction it moves.

Up, k, x - make rocket move up

Down, j, z - make rocket move down

Space - start next run


Upgrades:


There are three upgrades available in the game:

- more fuel so the run can last longer

- acceleration to make rocket gain more speed faster

- durability to lose less speed on asteroid impact

Backstory poem:


Looking beyond the horizon

and deep within,

dreaming of the shooting stars

travelling to the lands far away.

But the color blind earthbounds

made the door shut

to watch the world

only through the glass.

And so the journey start,

and so is moving so fast,

and so is moving so far,

far, away to some other place.

Thus went forth,

thus took off,

thus was ...

Moonshot

Is there a way to come back?

Addicting, but simple.

I like the game concept, but the graphics looks kinda weird and i feel the controls are choppy
