Setting

Planet earths resources are nearly exhausted. In this future you have to find a new home far away in the universe. Your beloved grandfather just passed away, but he left you with his greatest secret, his self-made rocket in his garage. His whole life he talked about the wonders of the universe, but he himself could not start this adventure as his knee was injured. He never told you how this happened, but it made him incapable to fulfil his dreams. Now it's your turn to make his last wish come true. Your mother is worried, because she thinks your are too young and first should finish elementary school. But your journey has already begun...



How to play the game

Your goal is to get as far as possible up the sky. Your resources are limited by your rocket components. The more advanced your components are, the better you will get along with the difficulties of space travel. Upgrading your head will give you more mobility and stability, so you can hit more obstacles without loosing control over your rocket and move through them with more agility. A better tank will increase your fuel capacity and a more enhanced booster will give you more boost duration. If you decide to level up your thruster, it will increase your gain in velocity by slightly increasing your fuel consumption. To perform those upgrades you have to earn money and you obtain money by reaching greater heights.
