This is a quick game where you need to protect the planet from a meteor shower heading your way. You must use the satellites to destroy the meteors (each satellite can take 2 hits) and collect satellite parts to build more satellites. If all your satellites are destroyed or the planet is hit by 2 meteors, you will lose. The shower will last roughly 60 seconds, can you survive? 

Move clockwise: Right Arrow
Move counter clockwise: Left Arrow
Move away from planet: Up Arrow
Move closer to planet: Down Arrow
Make Selection: Space or Enter
Full Screen: F
Mute: M
Return to Menu: Q

*You must return to the planet and have enough satellite parts for new ones to spawn.

You're practically my inspiration for game development, construct engine centered. Just here to write a comment of gratitude, nice game Vim!!

Really cool concept! It was pretty hard for me to survive at first because I didn't read the instructions carefully enough about sideways spinning, oops
