  • What's New
    Version 1.3
  • Fixed the Rate this App link
  • Removed the onscreen controls

    Version 1.2

  • Fixed an bug preventing the computer from giving you instructions in later levels. This was kinda important as it told you stuff like you only have 4 jumps on the blue asteroids, the red asteroids explode after 5 seconds and the brownish asteroids turn to dust after one jump.

  • Fixed a few levels where two asteroids were so close it would cause the player to jump between them

  • Further tweaked the 'drift zone' to prevent unintentional triggering. This happened most often in galaxy 2

  • Slight tweaking of gameplay sounds, player walking, jumping, and dark matter collection.

  • Other various (small) tweaks
