CONSTELLATION CHAOS

Posted Image

A fresh arcade game with a simple concept: Create constellations with your space ship by jetting off to distant stars. The farther you go, the more points you get. To destroy enemies, you must trap them into your constellation trails. Controls are explained in game.

I'd say this is a really nice start for a game and I would suggest you to continue developing this game. I know you created this really quickly and I can say that it is really good work. The game just is quite repetitive and gets boring rather quicky, so adding some new features would be nice. :P

Thanks! I was actually thinking of implementing some enemies in the game, that get destroyed when they cross your constellation path.

Pretty hard, but this is a cool original concept. I agree with Northern Unit, there isn't enough to the game yet to keep the player interested, but if you worked on it and added some more depth it could really become something neat.

It's great! The improvements from the old version to this new one are very noticeable, this is impressive. It plays much more like a full game now.

Truly awesome :o
I really like this, it's all great fun, and it was good to see how you took the original release--which was fairly basic--and turning it into something really deep and entertaining with all the new additions. Great work, hope to see more from you.

Woah, my bad. The reason why it didn't work for some vista users, is because I completely messed up. I messed up the files in the .zip. The good news is that everything now works smoothly, and the game will work on any PC. Yoyogames link is coming soon, but the virus scanner is messing up.

The game was recently featured on Indiegames: The Weblog for their Freeware Game Pick! I'm really happy that they made the review. You can check it out here: http://www.indiegame...onstellati.html

really fun :D But difficulty should slowly rise, not be insane from the start. Or maybe I just suck. Is 1000 for my best any good?

Thanks! Yeah, it was really exciting when I got the review. I thought no one would play my game at first.
Also, the yoyogames link is now up and running! (make sure to click the green update button)

Apparently my game is in a Cage Match with yours this week. Just wanted to say that I actually quite enjoyed your game, so best of luck.
