make sandbox mode where you dont die but you can keep going on and when a bug crushes into the planet you lose like 10 energy

Hm, that's an interesting idea... instead of having the life separated from the energy, they would be more or less the same thing... quite interesting!

 I'll take note of your suggestion, might implement it soon. Thanks!

I like this game. Great job.

As soon as you realise you can rotate the planet it is quite an easy game. Just put 3 solar panels on one side and keep rotating the planet with the sun. Then put a missile launcher on each of 4 quadrants of the planet. From there, fill everything with weapons as you keep rotating.

There is a bug which makes the missile towers OP - their missiles will loiter at the middle of the planet if they miss (target killed early), giving your planet a charged up defense.

 Thanks for playing! Right now I'm working on an update, and had no idea about the bug with the missile towers, I'll look into it and hopefully release a fix quite soon.

Great game but seems a bit hard

Like the concept, do have a bit of trouble getting myself started and finding the right balance in solar cells vs attack towers etc .. However, the game froze on me twice now. At some point, it seems when it gets a bit busy, the visuals completely freeze and I can't do anything anymore. The music continues and the mouse cursor also still changes when hovering over the build panel, but nothing moves anymore.

Playing this on Chrome on Windows 10 64bit.

I see, thanks for the details about when the game froze, they help a ton! The OS and browser used help as well. I'm not really sure what is causing those freezes, but I'll investigate it, and fix it on a future version. Thanks again for the details!
