So.. the review speaks of obstacles and stuff, but all I seem to be able to do is rise 100 feet up, lose my fuel and fall like a rock.

What am I doing wrong?


Notice how much money you have after that first abortive attempt? What upgrade Costs exactly 270 BuckZillas?


One thing I discovered only at the very end (not really a spoiler, but in the interests of caution):

You don't have to buy each stage of each upgrade. If you have the money, you could buy level 5 engines without buying levels 2-4.


propulsing rockets into space? after hedgehogs, pinguins and pichins, thats just a crazy idea.


lol @fuzzyface


Huh, this reminds me a lot of Fly Hard. Wait, is this the sequel? The art style and gameplay are suspiciously similar...


gah... I got every single upgrade and STILL wasn't able to get completely into space. I would fall just inches from the top of the checkpoint bar to the right.

There's...well, not exactly a cheat, but definitely an exploit for this one. If you go through one of the acceleration gates, cut your main engines, and as you fall back trigger your booster rockets to slow you down, you can get yourself into a situation where you're balanced, bouncing up and down on top of the gate. You can use the booster rockets to keep yourself from drifting too far from either side. This allows you to get the "Duration" achievements long before you are supposed to, thus getting about $8000 to spend early in the game. This will shorten your game tremendously: before I found this exploit, my personal best was 14 days, and now it's 8.
