Brief Play Description: 

Player 1 controls the ship (keyboard) which is fixed to a circular orbit around the star the players are trying to keep alive. The ship can travel clockwise or counterclockwise around the star, while firing nuclear payloads into the stars heart to keep it going. Player 2 controls the shield (mouse), also fixed to a circular orbit around the star ( smaller radius) which protects the ship from the solar flare ups that happen. The shields can only be activated briefly at any time so there is some measure of communication needed between the players.

Diversifiers and Credits
GGJ 2012 Diversifiers : 
Asymmetry: (Every player is different) The game requires more than one player, but each player has entirely different goals and rules.
Collaborative Casual/Hardcore: (Two players: one casual, one hardcore) Collaborative play for two, but one player has more to do than the other (or the difficulty level is different between them).
