This is straight-up one of the most entertaining games I've found on itch.io. It's simple and a small file, but infinitely replayable and just so dang fun. If there would be any way for you to make a full screen version, please do! Literally my only complaint is the resolution. This game is really freaking well done.

I didn't really get enough time to explore the gravity mechanic like I would have liked to, but it was fun to work on and I hope you like it!

A lot of fun! Very frantic gameplay. Jumping around the planets feels great when you get into a rhythm, and adds a lot of tension when things go wrong!
Grabbing a bomb box, turning around, and blowing up a whole bunch of enemies is super satisfying, as is landing a precise throw at a distant enemy with a normal box.
The aesthetic is really nice too! I think that the vignette and low resolution lend well to the tense atmosphere.
i love games where you have to run fast to survive but, sadly i cant get this game becuase im on crome book not windows/mac/linux :(
i love the pixelly style to this game
depending on the device you have, you may be able to enable a linux terminal on your chromebook, if that gives you some hope. best of luck
love your art style and games. i need to play more
I found a spot that threw me away from all surfaces lol im just floating and i would basically have the highestscore but i wont die so meh
How did you make the gravity mechanic? I wrote my own, but I cant get to work with multiple planets.
Good question buddy.
maybe have it as a volume around the planet? so you can say "ok when i'm in range of the planet and not on the ground activate the gravity script
I love your games!!
Can you please update it for mac? it won't run anymore :(
what is the clear box do?
Very fun game! Love the fact that it plays with gravity, it's fun hoping through fields. Nice and fast-paced.
Amazing game, great graphics. I really enjoyed it!
What's the world record (I want to beat it) :)
I played this for about an hour non-stop and it was so addicting.
Really love the Retro tv type style, made it feel exactly like a classic!
Well done and keep up the amazing work dude ;)
This game is so addicting and I had a lot of fun recording it. Check it out if you're interested!
I love this game wonderful run and platform mechanics. I occasionally get lost in space when I make the wrong jump but no biggie 4/5
Yeah getting lost in space is a well-known bug. I could patch it out, but I just think of it as the secret ending
I'm attempting to run this game on Linux and I get the error "0:1(10): error: GLSL 1.50 is not supported. Supported versions are: 1.10, 1.20, 1.30, 1.00 ES, and 3.00 ES"
Hello. My name is Jamon Tolbert, and I am a film and video game composer. I am a big fan of your game, and I wanted to know if you would be open to me composing music for the game, free of charge. I think that my style would fit very well with the visuals. Let me know if you are interested, and I can send you some examples of my work. Thanks.
I shouldn't have skipped the controls
Brilliant... reminds me a bit of the game mechanic of timing your jumps from "Escape the Red Giant"... + monsters + weapons + 3D
Not a bad game though it glitched at one point.
Hello! I loved your game, it was really cool and joyously fun to play! I made a let's play of it here~
Reminds me of Quake somehow
This was som much fun! I loved the speed of the game, never gave you a calmn moment.
ok if tis game was on my gameboy id pick it up a lot more. the caricter moves at brake neck speeds and it has just enuff challenge and intrist to keep you at it. this game is free, you should pick it up and play it
hi nice game dude really like it keep the good work BTW i found a glitch in the map that you fall Infinity and your point keep stacking up
Yeah, I noticed this exact bug too, you gotta keep jumping around a bit and you'll fall forever.
brilliant and scary please develop more
Sorry, my bad! I forgot to flag the Windows build as a Windows build. Should be fixed now :)
The game looks awesome, but i can't download it for some reason.
my download manager shows "forbidden" everytime i try.
and no links in the itch app too it shows that it's not available on windows.
please fix ,i can't wait to play it. :-)
Sorry, not sure what the problem is here. Perhaps try downloading it from the browser page?
I'm not sure why your download manager marks it as forbidden. Are using a special downloader plugin or just the regular browser? Can you download other games from itch.io OK?
I know Windows SmartScreen sometimes marks itch.io games as untrusted since some aren't downloaded very often... could it be that?
Nice idea but the resolution and FOV is waaaay to low, unplayable for me :/
This game is so much fun. It's simple, and feels like it could be mastered with a bit of practice. It's also reeeeally satisfying to see lots of aliens blow up when you hit them with a bomb. It's fast paced and I like it. The limited view also makes for a couple of jumps, when you turn and suddenly an alien is on you.
My only gripe is that having to click again to throw feels a bit unnatural. It may just be me, but having an item throw when you release the mouse would maybe flow a bit better? I'm not a developer, so it may not even be possible - just my thoughts.
I did a youtube video on it - maybe the most genuinely fun game I've played in a while: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJ_nPbiqG6Q
Thanks so much for the feedback! I'll take a look at your video when I get home from work :)
I think this might legitimately be the BEST score ever for this game!
Has anyone ever beat this? Make sure to check out this insane skill, mad props to Left Arrow!
Also i swear ive done higher before but i cant remember where i put the images.
Such an awesome game
Some real throwback style gaming hahaha, glad you made this for the GBJAM :)
Better than mine lmao, GG
For some reason I can never vocalize how much I love games when I record them. But I swear to you this was an amazing arcade style game to play! Even if I wasn't good at it.
(VULGAR LANGUAGE WARNING!)
I really liked the lighting, it makes it so much better, I was always on edge. Great game
