PLANET COLONIZER

Welcome to Planet Colonizer, my very first game jam game! Insert a coin to begin propelling your rocket through the galaxy. Try to colonize as many planets as you can along the way before you reach the worm hole at the end or crash your ship. Your people are depending on you to find more planets to colonize. When you colonize a planet they will change color and your species will prosper within those lands. Get out there and colonize as many planets in the galaxy as you can with your rocket. Your people need you!

Submission for: LM0B Beginners Game Jam #28
Theme: Arcade
Time Frame: 5 Days

  1. Fun - Is the game fun?
    Yes the game is pretty fun/addicting.
  2. Free Bugs - Were there a lot of bugs/ glitches . Make sure to give time to test before submitting?
    The game is 99% bug free. Small collision bug on sides of the planets.
  3. Theme - How well does the game incorporate and interpret the theme?
    I Think I nailed the "Arcade" theme. Especially with the  "Insert Coin".
  4. Audio - Was the sound and sound effects good or bad?
    Sounds fit perfect with the games theme.
  5. Mechanics - how  did the game feel movement wise and its ability to do what it intended?
    The movement could be a little better but it adds difficulty.
  6. Originality - same old stuff or was there something that stood out?
    Not very original but a concept that I could complete.

Very unexpected dynamics of the rocket movement. A mix of platformer game and spaceship simulator, creating a fun. Cool!

Love this, I'm just as bad at it as I am every game but I really enjoyed it! The space theme for this game concept is really nice.

Very nice art work and theme implementation. Rate it as well😁

This is a very cute take to a Doodle jump!! Loved the theme and the assets used, and as another comment said it doesn't have any visible glitches!!

I just wish the controls were less soapy haha

thanks for playing! i definitely would of liked to add mouse pointer as a way to control the rocket also

I love the space style games this is a cool one. Not very glitchy either

Like i mentioned there is a very very small chance of getting a collider bug but its pretty bugless

Nice work, keep it up! literally keep the rocket up lol

Thanks!
