Interesting. Would like to see more of the gameplay. The video above leaves me with one important unanswered question: where's the challenge?

There are:
- blue sticky asteroids (only 5 jumps and your stuck)
- red exploding asteroids (5 seconds and BOOM)
- brown 'dusty' asteroids (after you jump off they disintegrate)
- mini asteroid belts blocking your way
- orbiting dark matter
- teleporting dark matter
- commets
- black holes

Here's a quick video showing some of the hazards:

Excellent Hitchikers guide reference in the video at the top

I like the look of this, gives a nice isolated vibe.

Seems big, vastly mind-bogglingly big

Will give it a go at midnight.

Glad you caught that reference There's a few more scattered throughout the game.

Also, In celebration of the release of A Long Way Home on both the iPad and Mac, I've made 5 of my older games free! All of these games have recently been updated with GameCenter, so get in there and start beating people's scores! They are set to go free on June 16th, so it may still be updating in your area.

The free games are:

Z is for Zombie

F is for Falling

Zombie Heads

Zombie Heads HD

Obliteration HD

That's a good question. I've been spending this week trying to figure out the best way to do that. I'm hoping to start work on the iPhone version next month.

it's not that easy. it was originally designed for both an iPad and Mac release. I'm looking at options, and will probably do something with a zooming camera, but i need a break too This is a one man show and I've been working on the game since august.
