Launching Hedgehogs

I have the dream of one day going to space, but until then I have to live vicariously through a little hedgehog.  I am currently developing a launch game similar to Kitten Cannon, R!SE or Throw Me.  Instead of just being about launching you can fully upgrade your hedgehog to get special power ups and upgrades.  It’s a sophisticated little engine that puts you in control of the launch and the player’s movement and direction… so you can move around and collect objects while you are flying around!

As you fly through the skies you collect coins and hit platforms to launch higher.  Use your coins at the end of each level to upgrade your launcher and get you even higher!  The overall mission of the game is to launch into space, and once you do you win!  The secondary goal however is to do it in the least amount of in-game days.   Each time you launch it counts as a day, and you need to be careful not to waste resources and hedgehogs.  So strategy plays a big role in the proper defeating of this game.

I am hoping I can get this game out by next week.  It’s been a fun little side-project I have been working on in my free time.
