Finished. Fun little tiny game!

Two little polish things I'd do: make stars zoom away from the direction you are flying, and have edge-of-screen "something's that way" dots or arrows. Searched a long time for #9, and going out of that game to find the space map a bit of a pain.

Good job! Now for the next one!

@thattomhall Thank you very much. I'm glad you liked it!

Nice work! There are quite a lot of mechanics packed into this game! (Menu, scrolling text, the entire game itself, end-screen, and so on... quite a lot.) Love the planet art and the particle effects from flying. :D

@MBoffin Thanks! I'm happy you liked it!

Awesome! So glad you were able to make use of the dialog library. Thanks for the attribution. :)

The game was neat! I really liked each of the unique planet designs. I just kind of wandered around until I found everything. I didn’t realize there was a map on this page until I finished the game. :/

I can tell a lot of work went into this. Great results in under a month. Keep it up!

This is awesome! I love the sprites and the little spaceship! Amazing work as always!

@rustybailey I'm glad you enjoyed the game, and I'm very grateful that you made the dialog library. It was quite useful for the opening of the game.

@Jerry_Boy Glad to see you liked it. I can't thank you enough for continuing to be a fan of my work and enjoyed my games :D

Awesome game! I suggest not being able to fly through the sun, maybe as a restart??? It's great though.
Arrows or even a mini-map would be nice too, I agree.

No, Thank you for bringing so much to Pico 8! You're skill and talent have grown so much. You're gonna do great things!

I love this so much! I don't find games like these often. I love the little ship so much! You are one of the best creators I have seen in a long time. Can't wait for your upcoming games!
