Oh no! You're trapped inside a swarm of comets! You'll have no other option but to shoot them if you want to survive - But what's that? You can only rotate on an 8-directional axis? Well, that will make aiming somewhat harder... Will you survive anyway?

This is a game about shooting comets (or asteroids, alright).

Current Version: V1.0.1 (Made for TIC-80 Version 0.30.0)

Controls: Arrows for movement, any of A/S/Z/X to shoot. F11 for fullscreen.
