Controls: SPACEBAR, ARROWS. ESC to cancel an attempt.

Game by Calvin French. Based on the song Space Oddity by David Bowie.

Music written by David Bowie but played by me. Used without permission, hey!

Made for Ludum Dare August 2011.


I did change one tiny thing literally <3 min after compo deadline, there was a broken pause functionality (when you lose browser focus) and I disabled it.

There is a small bug remaining, basically when you beat a level make sure to press SPACE to go to the next. Otherwise the game won't record that you've beaten the level. Sorry!
