All promos used.

To devs, if you really want some feedback I'd recommend you go the route of "Promo codes for the first 10 PMs" or something since then you'll at least be getting codes out to forum members and not completely uninvolved lurkers.

Wow, it's fun. The graphics are pretty good, the way the music combines with the sound effects is very cool, the difficulty ramps up at a fair speed... I'm guessing English isn't your first language? The app description needs a bit of work.

For example, right after you list the features, "Controls:"
"In Toxic Orbit, you can't move. You're juste allowed to turn left or right"

Perhaps that would sell me on a Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job game, but not this. Something like "Shoot the orbs circling your planet before they're sucked in by your gravitational pull!" describes the game well enough that you can look at a screenshot and understand what's going on.

Yeah but then there would be a lot of awkward homo-erotic subtext and slime.
