When you're lost in space... can only one button save you?









The Lost Ship was created for a game design contest.  The idea was very simple:  to create a game which uses only a single button as its user interface.  That doesn't exactly open up a lot of creative opportunities, but the resulting game is nevertheless a lot of fun. 

Gameplay is quite simple:  you control the ship using any button on the keyboard.  As long as the button is held down, the ship rotates one way.  When no button is held down, the ship rotates the other way.  Each time the button is pressed and released, the ship fires.


The goal is to make your way to the level exit - the wormhole - while avoiding or destroying asteroids and enemies. 

Collect canisters to replenish your ship's shields and improve its firing speed.
