    Where can I go now? - Mirroar - Competition Entry

    Explore Space, gather resources, escape!
    Beware of your health, it does not regenerate. Make sure you don't bump into too many aliens.

    EDIT (12/29/2010): For the people who seemed to have problems with the applet, I added a windows .exe launcher and a macintosh .app.

    Actually, no, it isn't. Maybe the site was down for a moment when you tried :/

    This crashes Java (!) for me in both Chrome and Internet Explorer. :(

    Fun little game. I almost felt bad when I build a power plant on my cute little planet.

    The music was really southing and peaceful, though the BGM loops a little weird, sounds like a record needle being moved back into place.

    The enemies felt like they didn't really provide a challenge other than being roadblocks when you get fast enough.

    I could do with a logbook or the ability to replay the data logs, I did end up forgetting where I had to go.

    All-in-all a fun few minutes spent, great job!

    I finished the game. For my first play I didn't see the upgrade button ( it was offscreen on my small browser window :) ) Second play was much more interesting ! I'm not fond of the song loop, but the look of the game and the enemy behaviours are cool. I like the red one movements, they seems almost friendly ^_^ nice game.

    Aww ... I'm a nice little planet and want to explore the universe. If only that darn aliens wouldn't crash into me whenever I hit hyperspeed *grml*
    But then I can grow trees and see my nice little population build factories ...

    I had some memories of starcontrol 2 for a few moments, which is good because that was one of my favourites.

    This game is really really cool, it's relaxing, though entertaining and funny. I LIKE :-)

    omg ! the upgrade system + gathering resources + journey through the universe = so addictive and brilliant.
    I had fun

    Man, I really want to play this, but I've tried it on two computers with different OSes and 4 different browsers between them, and in every case the result is the same: the game loads, but almost none of the resources do, so nearly every object is a white box, and the text is just white streaks (except, oddly, the letter M, which displays fine). Any suggestions?

    @philmory That's indeed very odd. I've never had anything like that happen, it sounds like the texture loading messes up somehow. Either that, or it's on the OpenGL side of things.
    If I get the time during the next days, I could try compiling the code into a standalone version again. Maybe that'll work better for you. But I'm not sure if / when I can make that happen.

    This was a nice game. Not so much about discovery as about gathering resources. The graphics are good, and the colored irregular background makes it less repetetive. It was fun to upgrade my planet but then there was not so much more to do more than fly around and gather resources. Would be nice if you found new galaxies or planets.

    Nice game :)
    It is somehow satisfying to gather all the needed resources to get the upgrades but then it falters. There is no long term goal and you're basically left with flying about and suck up whatever you can (shouldn't you get to be a black hole sometime? :) )

    For those of you who think gathering resources and upgrading is all there is to this game, you might want to explore a bit more and keep an eye on your minimap.
    Also, read the text in game.

    A beautiful little game. Was quite enjoyable despite not having combat like you planned it. I was a bit confused by not being able to heal though. I found it very fun just to go around sucking up planetoids. Perhaps for an interesting twist, you could add some enemies or something else that would be detrimental to siphon, preventing your from going around holding RMB the entire time.

    Left my laptop on with this for a few hours and came back with 168826 rock, 168095 energy, and 172262 plant stuff.

    Really like this game. Desperately needs some form of healing though, and I think infinite upgrades would work very nicely. Music and graphics were good, and the upgrades system sort of tied it together. Nice work.

    Btw, this only happened once, but one time I purchased an upgrade (the middle-bottom one I think) and ended up with negative energy. Like -76 or something. Can't seem to recreate the bug though.
