Under rating threshold (show) I have a little bug (though it may not apply to today's level)- in Region 2, as of March 9th, I died twice on an invisible rock.

Thanks for the heads up - we'll have this fixed in the next update.

Under rating threshold (show) if you beat the next player level's score milestone on a previous player level you will have to achieve the score again. I'm not sure whether this was an intentional feature or not, but I don't like it: the score milestones can be hard enough to get the first time. Otherwise this is a great game

Developer response from Flippfly

Thanks for the feedback! This was more or less intentional - but we've got a better system in the works after great feedback like this. Stay tuned :)

Under rating threshold (show) This is definitely one of my favorite games on this site, and I'm looking forward to the finished product. But I keep running into an issue where when occasionally when I turn, the plane keeps turning in that direction like the controls are stuck. Any ideas?

+ - !

Developer response from Flippfly

Heya, we've seen this from time to time, the best fix we've found is to restart your browser, and make sure this is the only window open. It also seems to be worse in full-screen mode for some reason. Let me know if that doesn't solve it for you! Unfortunately it seems to be a Unity engine thing.

Under rating threshold (show) Minor bug: sometimes pressing the "play again" button while the death scene is still running makes the game restart with a slower ship, while the sun is setting at the same speed as usual

+ - !

(3)

Developer response from Flippfly

Thanks for the heads up, we'll have a fix for this soon! It seems to be related to hitting the "restart" button very quickly on death.

Under rating threshold (show) My biggest critique is that I wish the regions were random. I don't want to have to get through the same relatively boring region to reach the much more interesting ones later. The game would retain my interest better if there was more randomness to it.

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from Flippfly

Check out our new gameplay video - the regions won't be nearly as boring in the finished product :)

Under rating threshold (show) Couple things: 1) There's a bug where certain games start you at a hilariously slow speed. Just thought I'd let you know. 2) 80,000 is really really high for a second level achievement. I'd love to see the rest of what you've got to offer but with this brick wall restricting access to the rest of your game, I don't really feel like throwing down cash for the full version. You've got a good game, don't let the scoring system kill it.

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from Flippfly

Thanks for the feedback! For #1, we have a fix locally. It seems to be related to hitting the restart button too fast. For #2, we hear you! We'll get an update out that addresses this, once the Kickstarter craziness calms down :)

Under rating threshold (show) Is it actually possible that someone goes so faster than the sun that instead of the sun setting, the player goes so faster than the sun that he loses because the sun falls too much behind?

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Flippfly

Not possible, the game puts a limit on how far above the sun is allowed to go.

Under rating threshold (show) I love the heck out of this game (I wrote about it on GameArena even) but for some reason after a couple of dozen rounds the ship slows down to a total crawl? Refreshing fixes it, so it's no real bother though.

+ - !

(3)

Developer response from Flippfly

We've got a fix for this, thanks for letting us know! It seems to be related to hitting that restart button too quickly when you die.

Are you having trouble installing the Unity web player? It's usually pretty smooth. If the link isn't working for you, here's where you can download it direct: http://unity3d.com/webplayer/

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game, but getting 80,000 at level *2* is killing me! The others are easy enough. got those many many rounds ago. Still, great game, and I hope even with your 3k$ you can make it amazing :)

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Flippfly

Hang in there, we're working on a new objectives system that'll make this a bit easier! The plan is to have 3 objectives for each level, but if you complete one, it'll swap in a new one - so if there's one that's really tough for you, you can save it for later :) Thanks for following along with our Kickstarter - we haven't given up hope yet!

Under rating threshold (show) It's overall a nice game, I made a break from it to write this comment. My thougths: I don't know if something changes at the higher player level ( I mean, i know powerups are added, but I don't know if scenery is, because should) but from new player point of view I think that these kind of games are HIGHLY addictive until they have something to do - achievements. My opinion is that the fun achievements are key to success. But what are the fun achievements? For sure not the one like collect x powerups y times. Someone posted earlier adding "water" levels. This could be good for adding achiev like "Distance traveled while wing is touching water" etc. What do you think about it? To comment other aspects of game: Graphic is really cool, It helps focus on gameplay, that kind of graphic never gets old :) Music maybe should getting a lil bit heavier while the ship is getting higher speed. Overall I see great potential in this game: And sorry for bad English!

Developer response from Flippfly

Hey thanks for the great feedback! We're definitely working on making more interesting things happen in the game, and this will also help us keep the achievements/objectives more interesting too! Right now we're running a Kickstarter to try and help fund us through to the end of development - the plan is to open up the world-building tools to modders, so there'll be an endless stream of new content to enjoy :)

Under rating threshold (show) seems all constructive criticism is gone from this so with that said all good/great games like Dark Orbit..Pirate Galaxy lost something dye to upgrades like this one that plays so slow you cannot get out of your own way sad this was a good game..thanks for the "upgrades"

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Flippfly

Sorry I'm having a bit of trouble understanding. The game is running more slowly for you after an upgrade? Give us a shout-out, we aim to please :) Also note: We've got a massive update to the game planned for this week! It may actually run faster than the current one, and will have a lot of other improvements as well.

Under rating threshold (show) The only frustrating thing was the second level challenge, getting 100k points without magnet...I don't know about you, but I find myself unable to pick many of the tris without magnet. So I had to play over and over just to get a lucky spawn. After getting magnet, game got 10 times easier.

Developer response from Flippfly

Thanks for the feedback! We're definitely aware of some of these hurdles with the objectives. Look for an update soon :)

Under rating threshold (show) is it just my coputer or does everyone have problems with arrows sticking?

+ - !

(2)

Developer response from Flippfly

It's an occasional problem that seems to be a problem with Unity, unfortunately :( Some people have had luck by playing in a windowed mode. Also try closing *all* other browser windows and programs that may be querying for keyboard input.

Under rating threshold (show) this game i bloody amazing!!! i love the style and effects. there is only two this i'd currently like to see changed is to have the music have a bit more flow when changing, and also add in some other populace to the world other than squid... giant squid... but i love the game, it's the best flash game I've played in quite a while

Under rating threshold (show) Darn I was so close to completing the easy badge! (yeah, I know I'm pathetic) , but those walls seriously looked like ramps to me, no joke, so by the time I realized they were just obstacles it was too late to turn and...Boom. Still a good game though, albeit a little frustrating.
