    Super Orbit Worlds - Jhelle - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Welcome to my Ludumdare#23 entry page.

    "The universe is starting to get more and more dangerous. Meteors are running rampant and it's up to you to save the remaining small worlds."

    The worlds will orbit around your mouse so keep them safe from the meteors. Having multiple worlds/ Moving quickly will multiply your score. Good luck!

    Made using Flixel, Flashdevelop, SFXR, Paint.net and Autotracker-BU.

    Nice, a really cool concept. A nice endless arcade type game :)

    Is a funny game. The idea of add more orbiting planets is good. Good work.

    Cool little game! And quite addictive, probably due to it's simplicity...

    Oh, that's neat. Having the planet not directly follow the mouse makes it more interesting, and much more difficult, because you have to pay attention to its movement. Having multiple planets all in orbit just compounds that even further. Once I had three planets it got too hard to pay attention to all of them and they all went out at once. That was fun.

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 7:34pm

    Haha, that was frantic, nice use of the theme. Simple but easy to play.

    Lovely music and a great world-addition mechanic. Would've possibly been more fun if you had more control over the orbits of the worlds, because once you got to a certain point it was all but impossible to keep more than one world alive at once

    Nice and simple. I can dig it!

    A fun little game! I liked playing it!

    When you get a new planet it appears at a random position around the orbit. This insta-destroyed a couple of planets during my games.

    Excluding that annoying part, the game is a super fun concept, i could play it for hours. :)

    Very simple, great game. Loving the multiple planets coming in there...

    Really nice concept, I like it!

    Very nice! The idea is awesome, graphics are pretty and sounds are great. Overall, a really good game.

    Fantastic! Almost perfect. Just the right amount of added elements to the simple gameplay device of avoiding random obstacles.
    I couldn't tell if you got a score bonus for having additional planets orbiting you, but I think that would be a good idea.
    I think some other graphic for the cursor would be good... I kind of think a sun, but that might be weird with the planet being as big as it... and you would expect it to destroy the asteroids.

    Simple and effective: very nice. =)

    Apr 28, 2012 @ 1:08pm

    Great concept! I 3 planets at once is pretty tough I think I kept my third planet for less than a second. Great fun!

    Awesome! Easy to understand and pick up, deadly addictive. Very nice work.

    Apr 28, 2012 @ 1:12pm

    Oh wow, pretty neat idea :)
    First I was like, mmmm tis is kinda weird and then another planet came and I was like fuck yeah! The multiple planets was a cool feature ^^
    The only thing I was wondering about was why you made the planets follow the mouse so jiggly like, why not just absolute positions?

    summaky says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 1:38pm

    Very simple idea that is effective. I didn't understand what the over planets that from time to time appear do, though.

    I liked how you applied the avoider mechanics in a unusual way. Also the music's quite nice. Well done!

    Nice twist on the mouse-avoider game. Noted the 'jigglyness' of the planets.. was that intentional?

    Very concise and tidy! A simple game with a nice concept and execution. The presentation is nice and it all feels very complete and well thought out. I could almost imagine it in an arcade cabinet! :)

    Simple and fun! I like it a lot :-)

    Simple but elegant; simple, intuitive controls and goals. I found myself wishing there were a little more to it, though. Nice work!

    It's an unique idea! I wanted to see a reason why the earth is moving around the mouse cursor. Some gravity thing like Sun could be at the center.

    Simple and entertaining.

    I liked the music. The gameplay was really simplistic, maybe have the bounce when the mouse is moved happen slower for longer?

    Surprisingly complex ramifications from an innovative style of play. Instead of controlling the planet, you control the center point of its orbit. I thought it was fascinating and kept surprising me as I played. This could definitely be explored further.

    Simple and sweet; I like it :).

    I like it. Simple, good use of avoidance mechanic. Controls were occasionally jump (perhaps on purpose).
