Story

Commander DB (Dog Bonez) is in a pickle. He left his Nano-Bulbous-Gravitron-Phaser v3, a cosmic dog toy, at home. His issue is that his home, the kennel planet, is on the other side of the galaxy 5 000 000 dog years away.

Using nearby planets' gravitational pull, DB aims to use the power of ORBITing gravity to make it home a couple of dog years shorter.

Instructions

Hop to the orbit of the next planet using the SPACE key. The tip of the ship should be pointed at the planet you intend to move to. If you miscalculate the trajectory of the planet, you will orbit in-space forever and need to restart. You can not move to planets in the opposite direction of travel as the gravitational force is moving strongly to the right and attempting to move against it will result in the shuttle doing a flip.
