Made for the 72 hour Ludum Dare 38 Game Jam - #ldjam38

Start as a small planet known as Plutus gathering space debris to become the biggest celestial body in the known universe!

They say the "rock" you call home is too puny to count as a planet! Show the universe what a real planet is! Traverse the solar system using rocket boosters to guide your planet and absorb everything in sight smaller than your planet to increase it's mass. Consume various space debris, satellites and even OTHER PLANETS! Collect exciting power ups and avoid larger bodies and black holes in your mission to become the biggest and baddest planet around. Consume all the planets to win! Make them fear the name Plutus!
