This is incredibly tough to master the controls but it's a very interesting game; given that it's from the dev behind They Must Be Fed, that's not surprising though!

It's an endless runner-style shmup-type thingy. You control your craft's jets with either side of the screen, so initially a lot of time will be spent going round in circles but it's great once you adjust. There's even some Starborn Anarkist-esque spaceship building whereby you buy and earn parts that can be used to assemble a larger ship or better propulsion. I'm really not sure how best to describe it at the moment but it's definitely fun so I recommend giving it a download for sure!

Edit: Yep, hugely fun so far. Can't find any payment model whatsoever weirdly. No IAPs in the menu or ads that I've noticed.

WTF. I just reached Level 9, had almost everything unlocked and over $550, now I've lost my ship, everything is locked again and my highest level and balance have been reset to zero.

Other than that(!), the game is highly recommended. Anything from Jesse is always worth checking out, especially as this is free.

I had my progress randomly reset once too... Luckily I wasn't very far in at the time.

Other than that, this game is amazing. In a more just universe, this would be the next Flappy Bird. Super simple and fun, but with a surprising amount of Starborn Anarchist-esque depth in the ship building.

I was having a lot of fun with this as well, unlocked all but the last two pieces, and had a fatal error crash that wiped it all out. I wish I'd thought to screencapture the error. If it happens again I will. (Attached)

What I was doing when it crashed was I constructed a craft made of four helium blocks, a coin magnet, and my guy and just letting it go. Quite amusing to see how far it could make it.

Sorry guys I need to fix some problems! I will put out an update as soon as I can.

Great to hear people enjoy it, I didn't know if it would be well received but your comments are encouraging to make it better

The fix for the save reset bug is out. Time to give this another try.
