Friday Timewaster: Little Rocket

Little Rocket is an absolutely charming little exploration game you can play in your browser. Fly the little rocket around, using the mouse to direct it, and left click to activate thrust (it works like Asteroids). Your task is to collect 16 pink stars – and there are a variety of ways to get them. There are little puzzles and tasks to complete around this little universe, and you’ll need to stop off at planets to refuel along the way.

I really like the lightweight physics of Little Rocket – the planets all have gravity, and there’s something really pleasing about using it to circle in and land. The chilled guitar soundtrack perfectly accompanies the relaxed, unhurried experience. If you found the holidays stressful and need to relax; forget yoga, play this instead!
