    Pretty basic, usable but nothing too spectacular.

    This was probably my favorite game yet now that I think about it. The gravitational physics pulling you adds a great / fun twist to the game, and I could see people spending a while trying to get their hang around flying just before trying to play with others on it.

    I know this wasn't that kind of hackathon, but I really appreciate that you've even thought through monetization a bit with the "hangar" idea!

    The physics could be upgraded a bit - the flying is a bit hard do grasp, additionally for a game where the players must interact with each other the socket lag is to big.

    Worked and I like the gravity physics but you kind of over did it, I spend more time being killed by planets than people.

    I had to take away a couple points for completeness because I ran into some bugs. (Shots coming out of nowhere).

    I think you could make the game play a bit more fun by speeding up the number of shots allowed.

    I really like the idea, and adding gravity was a nice effect. Also moving the star field was very nice. Overall, very well done.

    Gravity was too strong, difficult to get anywhere! A mini-map would be awesome to help find people. Perhaps lag from Australia was impacting on my ability to play.

    I played alone (so I could not fully enjoy the game) but the gravity thing is fun and everything is super smooth. Nice job, congratulations!

    I really wanted to like this game! I have to spend so much effort not running into stars that I cannot interact with another player in any meaningful way.

  • contestant

    I loved the physics and the ablity to orbit. The parallax scrolling for space looks great! But the game is a bit hard to play
