A game for the GMTK Game Jam 2019, made in the last 5 hours.

Slingshotters take off with minimal fuel from Earth and attempt to coast around the solar system for as long as possible. You get only one burst of fuel for take off, so make sure you use it wisely! As soon as you think you can't go any longer, eject to save your score. Record your best scores in the comments! Mine is 30.5 seconds.


Left/Right arrows - Choose direction of launch

Up arrow - Hold to launch ship away from Earth. Release to stop accelerating (but be careful, you cannot accelerate again after the first time!)

X - Eject pilot and save your score.

Z - Reset the game simulation to try again.
