Controls:

  • Automatically moves to the Mouse position or by using the Keyboard ASDW/Cursor Keys if the Mouse is outside the game area
  • Click/Spacebar to throw a Star, it charges up when held
  • You can shoot in any of 8 directions but Keyboard controls need more time to properly acknowledge the direction. Try Easy/Normal mode to see a guideline.

Notes:

  • Catching Stars returns its energy minus the health of whatever it went against.
  • Your Stars gain energy when it hits bullets without losing anything.
  • The Stars do a back-circle where they start vanishing. Catching it at this point only gives back 50% of its energy.
  • The currency when shopping is your score and the upgrades are transparent until you have can buy it (or sell if you just bought it).
