Compact Discovery - Starspell - Competition Entry
You are a space ship pilot on a voyage of DISCOVERY!!!! (what else would you be doing?). Explore the galaxy around you, mine for carbon, get rich in poly-carbonate (p or polys) and fight off evil space pirates! It's the magical world of "Compact Discovery"!
Space pirates can't attack you outside of your shields. Each planet will either be mineable, provide you with polys or will be a hidden enemy base. Planets will change each time you visit your Hub. You won't know what kind of planet it is until you get close to it. Mineable planets will glow blue at their core after you get close to them.
From the Hub you can trade in your mined carbon for polys, get upgrades for your ship and your ship's health will be recharged.
Around you are arrows pointing to all the planets in the system. The red arrow is always directed to the Hub.
Movement: Mouse. Your craft will move faster the further away your cursor is from the ship.
Fire: Mouse Left Button.

Mine Planet/Open Hub Menu/Close Hub Menu/Reset after Death: Space. To access the Hub Menu you must be on the Hub.
