The Earth is in danger, protect this small world from the massive planets. Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter have declared that there will only be 4 planets in the solar system, the choice is simple submit and become one of their moons slave to their gravity and will or be destroyed. The rest of the planets have already been destroyed or enslaved the small world of Earth is all that remains, protect the earth.
Use WASD or arrow keys to move, press J to launch continental mass at opponents.
Cool concept and actually challenging gameplay in the later levels.
Really the only thing missing would be more polish. Small thing like particles effects, juice, music and maybe even a font other than the default one could really bring this game to the next level.
But overall, had fun playing through it, well done! :)

Charming! Loved the puns and the sprites. I also enjoyed how all the planets and moons behaved differently, and the astronomy theme.

Very nice work on the difficulty progression, each boss felt remarakbly different from the previous. A nice little game for such a short jam!

It's not that much to look at it, but I did end up enjoying this game a lot more than I expected to. I enjoyed how each battle against the planets was slightly different and how the difficulty escalated each time. The final boss was particularly interesting. Not a fan of having to restart the whole game when you die though.
The game is definitely lacking in the presentation area. A bunch on squares on a grey background just isn't particularly appealing to look at. The sound effects also get quite repetitive. I will say that I like the art for the planets though. It's amusing how some open their mouth(?) and it was cool seeing Saturn shooting its rings at me.

I really love your interpretation of the theme as the small rocky world against gas giants, that's really clever! The fight against Jupiter was also much more interesting than I expected, so congrats on that. I do think the fights leading up to it were a little lackluster, and there's not much to go off of in the art department (though I loved the cool touches like Saturn shooting rings at you.) Anyway, neat idea, good job!

Awesome game! Loved that intro story and got me straight into it. It had a lot more strategy than I expected, (i was expecting mindlessly shooting bullets) so that made it a lot more interesting. Saturn was the hardest to figure out what it was doing, but i think that's okay. I loved the Jupiter fight :)
I think adding slight variations on the shooting sound effects for the different planets would make them less annoying (just by changing the pitch up/down). I would've also added a quick pre-fire frame before a planet shoots a bullet so you aren't as surprised when it shoots one.

Fun game! Saturn took the longest time for me to beat but I eventually got it :)
