Oh no!! A scientist's quark experiment went horribly wrong, and now a void of vaccuum decay is very rapidly spreading across the entire galaxy! This phenomenon is causing the galaxy to run out of space! The scientists have tasked you with piloting a racing drone the center of the galaxy to activate an ancient machine that can destroy the void. You have to race the void to the center though, and saying the task will be hard is an understatement.

Universal crumble is a game that teaches you how real spaceflight works. This game will teach you about what movement in space is like (it's not just hitting the main thruster constantly!) on a 2D plane. go for a fun run with easy mode, test your piloting skills with hard mode, or cry and weep wondering where it all went wrong with doom mode. Good luck!


WASD: navigate 4 directions

SHIFT: activate galacdrive engines (boost)

95% of code was made myself, the other 5% copied from my other games.

Made entirely with the SHELTZY-32 color pallette. All sprites by me.
