Orbits

My entry to Ludum Dare 47!

Gameplay

The central star of the system is turning into a red giant! Escape the system by reaching a high enough orbit to break free. The energy that fuels your ship is limited, however, so you will have to collect energy pellets on your way up. Powerful powerups like gravitational anomalies or reversals can also help you.

Controls

Orbits needs only two keys to be played, making it also mobile-friendly.

Keyboard

  • UP or RIGHT: orbit up
  • DOWN or LEFT: orbit down

Controller

  • Right shoulder: orbit up
  • Left shoulder: orbit down

Touchscreen

  • Tap right screen half: orbit up
  • Tap left screen half: orbit down

Powerups

Energy Pellets

Collecting energy pellets allows to to reach higher orbits. You also gain or lose them on changing orbits.

Gravitational Anomaly

Temporarily neutralizes gravity and allows changing orbits without gaining or spending energy pellets.

Reversal

Reverses your ship's direction.

Content

There are currently 6 levels playable.

Thank you for playing!
