Poor little Pluto's been absolutely miserable ever since being demoted to a mere planetoid. O humiliation! O shame!

The entire solar system (accursed Earthlings!) is laughing at you, or so you feel--nay, know, in your sad planetoidary mind.

What will become of you, Pluto? Where will you go?


Slingshot yourself out of orbit and out into deep space.

Absorb the energies of space junk such as space potatoes, astrocats, the Hubble Space Telescope and both Voyager missions!

Avoid energy-draining waste fired by a legion of strange toupee-headed robots that seem to be polluting the universe with negative energy.

The solar system mocks you.

Take it. It's yours.


Left-click+drag with mouse to operate the space slingshot
(Pull back the directional circle in the opposite direction that you want to go! Sounds about ten times more complicated than it is.)

Works even better on a touchscreen, if you have one! Just pull and release.


'Cool. I destroyed our solar system with no particular motivation :) Good job. :)'

I tried to complete this game with sparing uranus but that didnt work so i ate uranus.. I wanted to spare uranus because my best friend likes uranus :(

I love this game! I also love how you made an android version aswell! Now I can bring it with me wherever I go!

It's a really fun game! It's funny and really cute! My old problem is I think maybe the text goes to fast, I could normally just get through half of a sentence before it faded away, so unfortunately I didn't catch every joke. Made a video, hope you enjoy! 

Personally, I feel like maybe we had it coming and I welcome our Plutonian demise. #plutoisaplanet

woooo just saw this, made our afternoon! thanks so much!:) Psst twitter tagging devs is a great way to get them to realise someone is playing their random game about planets eating each other ... :D
