The meteor magnet control idea is a good one, and I think I’ll have to give it a try. It could bring another level of gameplay to the game. I should release a bunch of Pluto Strikes Back releated prototypes, just to test all these additional ideas.

@bigbossSNK: That’s actually a technique I use, when I play the game. It’s a good way to minimize the damage that the meteors could cause.

Controlling the magnetic field would be great and would create a new game on it’s own but I found it much more interesting to absorb impact by pointing my bat at the meteor, then swinging like it’s interstellar little league practice

By the way, the game is admirable. I wish I could control the meteor magnet in addition to wielding the bat, but the updated version is good enough to placate me.

Keep up the good work.

The highscore table is the one of the big features I’d definately want in the game. I wanted to do that for the original release, but unfortunately time ran out. And that’s also true that if I don’t start to work with Pluto right now, it sure is going to be more difficult to pick it up later. Sadly I’m at the moment too busy to work on any game project. Luckily it’s already December so Christmas is around the corned hence a holiday. I try to work a new game during my Christmas holiday and if I have a free day or two I’ll try to work on Pluto.

A highscore table would be nice, and you know if you don’t code it now, you probably aren’t coming back to it.
Keep it up
