You play as a tiny space craft defending your star from incoming planets. Use your ship's blast-lasers to destroy threats while avoiding collision. Your ship is locked into orbit around the star - you can adjust the size and direction of the orbit to maneuver around obstacles.
Each solar threat you destroy awards you a point - shoot for a high score!
The particle effects in this game are downloaded assets. Models, animations, music and design are all original.
Check out what we are currently working on here:
Version Alpha 0.2.1 has some new stuff! Check it out!
New Ability: Boost
Hold L Shift to increase your speed. Helpful for getting to the other side of the sun quickly.
New Ability: Shockwave
Hold Space to charge and execute a powerful shock-wave which changes your orbit direction as well as destroying nearby planets.
New Enemy: Aggressive Asteroid
The asteroid enemy barrels toward the sun at great speed. You will need to prioritize taking the asteroid out as soon as you hear its unique sound.
- New sound effects and visual effects have been added
- The rate at which the orbit expands and contracts now accelerates rather than instantly expanding or contracting at top speed.
- Space bar no longer resets the game on gameover.
IMPORTANT: Although this game is fully supported for use with a mouse and keyboard, it is intended to be played with a controller.
Update (Alpha 0.2.0 and on): We've improved mouse and keyboard input and we now believe it to be a superior input method for OD.
