Release Notes

Version : 1.3 | Size : 75.9 MB
Version 1.3
- Fixed the Rate this App link
- Removed the onscreen controls

Version 1.2

- Fixed an bug preventing the computer from giving you instructions in later levels. This was kinda important as it told you stuff like you only have 4 jumps on the blue asteroids, the red asteroids explode after 5 seconds and the brownish asteroids turn to dust after one jump.

- Fixed a few levels where two asteroids were so close it would cause the player to jump between them

- Further tweaked the 'drift zone' to prevent unintentional triggering. This happened most often in galaxy 2

- Slight tweaking of gameplay sounds, player walking, jumping, and dark matter collection.

- Other various (small) tweaks

Tedious (1.3)

a long and boooooooring way home I'm afraid :(

Great game (1.0)

Really nice multiplatformer, love the music. Only two tiny things, it would be nice if there was some sort of idea of progression e.g your computer gives you a star map to look at after completing each level or galaxy. It would also be nice to be able to turn off the on screen controls (I use the arrow keys and space bar) and to customise your space man. The best free game in the store, and it will take some beating. However I now won't get any work done.

Reptitive much.... (1.2)

I like atmospheric games and this one has an isolated, peacefull ambience that suits the theme very well.

This is one of my most favourite games ever! This just such a worthy download, It chill's me out like no other app on the market, it's far superior to most other app's you have to pay for, Definitely my App of the Month!!

Long Way from Home - Fantastic!! (1.0)

Long way from home is a great addictive game with very original idea, cute graphics, animation and nice mellow fitting music! I recommend that if you like games that arn't over in 30 seconds with a good progressing challenge then be sure to check this game out. Stuck out in space you have to get back to earth by collecting Dark Matter and along with your trusty wrist computer create worm holes to journey your way back to earth. Can you make it all the way back ... It's A LONG WAY HOME....be sure to try you won't regret it. Congrats to Jon for making such a quality game. Thanks Pete W.
