Game Information
Short Introduction: 
You are a member of the alien race known only as the Vindaloovian Empire. You despise humans, and have pledged to exterminate them all. You want to destroy the universe by creating as many black holes as possible.
Brief Play Description: 

Player pilots a space tug that is dragging a planet around with a tractor beam. The aim is to collect matter that is dotted around the universe, which increases the mass of your star. The more mass you star has, the more unwieldy it becomes to drag around. The player must swing the star around so that it hits and absorbs the matter, rather than the tug boat. If the tug boat hits some of the matter, it loses one of its three shields.

As the player collects more matter they level up through stages, the aim being to reach the top stage which causes them to go supernova and respawn somewhere else on the map. Where the player went supernova leaves a black hole, which will suck in any player that is near. If a player is subsumed by a black hole, the player who created the black hole receives the matter points of the subsumed player.

Once the galaxy reaches a given amount of black holes the gravity becomes too strong and the universe collapses!
