Urth is a unique game about a planet running away. The story progresses through increasingly difficult levels as the player guides Urth to an uncertain future. The gaming experience provided by the levels is a combination of puzzle and abstract platforming.
Escape mode features a large area populated by planets and stars, reflexes and timing are everything in this mode, as players try do distance themselves from the central star. Escape mode is a cross between maze and reaction games.
The game was initially created in 48 hours as part of Ludum Dare 21. This version is similar to the competition version except for performance and interface tweaks. In addition, there are 6 extra levels to smooth the difficulty curve - it's not an easy game :)
Future updates will include better sounds, graphics, and more levels.
Playing instructions: touch planets/ stars to change orbit, read the goals at the beginning of each level.
Last but not least it works on tablets as well as phones.
NEW: More options in escape mode, and several UI/graphics tweaks.
