After spending a few weeks on the International Space Station (ISS), it became very clear to us that debris floating around in space has become a real problem. Some people call it space junk. We like to call it Space Garbage!
To help overcome this growing problem, we have designed a simulator (some people call it a game) to help future would-be astronauts practice travelling in space while avoiding these objects.
The goal of the game is very simple; survive in space! The longer you travel, the more objects will come right at your ship and it will become more and more difficult to avoid them. You also need to be careful not to hit the force fields at the top and bottom of the screen!
Your space ship has five upgrades which can be activated only once during the game and will make your ship invincible for 10 seconds (you still need to avoid the force fields). These special features can be tricky though. For example, when you activate invisibility your ship will become invincible BUT it will also be invisible to you! The only way you can briefly see your ship is by moving up or down and visualize the booster rockets in action! When a special feature is about to disengage, a voice caution message will warn you.
A list of the ten best games is kept in the high scores screen with the players' name. When a new game is terminated and the score is higher than the lowest score in the high score list, a window will automatically open for the player to enter his or her name, which will then be added to the top ten list.
Your ship follows the laws of physics which means that it will accelerate and decelerate slowly to fight inertia. It will take some practice to get used to real physics!
Please note that the FREE version does not have the special ship upgrades. We hope that you will enjoy Space Garbage and please try not to smash Chris Hadfield's guitar...
