The main goal is to move the blue brick out of the playing field.

You control a spaceship in the middle of the galaxy, there is no one near you, there is nowhere to wait for help! And then you will have to go through a meteor shower that has already reached your allies, hold out for 100 seconds until help arrives, and in no case stumble upon a meteorite! Control of the game is done through the arrows on the keyboard, be sure to share the winnings with your friends.

In Brief:
I was quite surprised (not in a good way) when I first booted up Mini Planet, why, because I got the message You Lose within just over a second of booting the game up. I proceeded to keep getting 'You Lose' message for the first several attempts until I figured out you had to move backwards to avoid being hit by an asteroid.

There is no main menu; the game starts as soon as you click on the executable or the shortcut to the games executable.

As soon as you start the game you need to press the down arrow key immediately, otherwise (as indicated above) an asteroid crashes into your ship. If this happens you'll get the 'You Lose' in green Krypton lettering. The down arrow causes the ship to move backwards. The longer you keep it depressed, the faster you will move. To stop accelerating, press the forward arrow key to decelerate, then you can move forwards, but this risks a quick crash as all the asteroids move backwards.

You can turn left while flying backwards by pressing the left arrow key and turn right backwards using the right arrow key. Once you get used to the backward nature of the controls, it becomes relatively easy to survive. You have to survive for 100 seconds. If (or when) you reach the 100th second (the timer counts backwards from 100 to 0 seconds), you get a You Win in the same bright neon like colour; (the noble gas that is used in real life that gives this colour is Krypton, the noble gas Neon gives a red colour in the real world).

I noticed, once I was able to survive for short periods, that when I restarted after getting the 'You Lose' message, the timer would initially showed 100, but then change to the time where I last lost; so, basically you only get 100 seconds of game play before the game ends (not counting the time the 'You Lose' image is showing).

Once you manage to survive the 100 seconds i.e. when the count down timer reaches zero, that's the end of the game. There's no exit game or message saying The End. To exit the game you have to either Alt+F4 or click on the close window button (X). The game opens into a window and there is no way to make it full screen.

You can see a video of game play HERE.
Controls:
Left Arrow = Move Left
Right Arrow = Move Right
Up Arrow = Move Forward
Down Arrow = Move Backward
Mouse Click = Restart after the 'You Lose' message

Conclusion:
The game had virtually no game play elements apart from avoiding contact with any of the asteroids hurtling towards your ship using the four arrow keys. My attention soon dropped to virtually zero; with that in mind in all honesty I could not recommend this game. It may keep you occupied for a few moments, but after playing it through a couple of times, you'll realise that there's only a few minutes of game play before the game ends abruptly. In my opinion it's not even a demo; at least the old demo games from years ago and those available on Steam and other big name developer clients such as Ubisoft and Origin would at least give you a decent hours worth of game play or several levels of game play that you could replay to your hearts content.

I deleted it once I'd played it through a few times. I cannot believe the developer (JOB.LAB) are asking $5 for this game (granted, we are getting it free today). During the Steam sales (there's one on right now) you can get some AAA and superior indie games such as Borderlands 2, Street Fighter V, Dragon's Dogma, Batman Arkham Knight, Terraria, Titanfall 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Yakuza 0, Resident Evil 4 & 5, Saints Row IV, Portal 2, Dishonoured, Fallout New Vegas and more for anywhere from $1.99 to $4.99.

Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found zero hits from 62 antimalware engines. You can see the scan HERE.

Looks like it took longer to write this review than it did for you to play and delete this one!
Thanks for letting us know to not bother.
Your reviews are the best.

Today's game is a situation where Asteroids meets the era of the survival genre to not get hit by the rocks. There are no guns to fire you simply use the arrow keys in order to dodge them until the timer runs out.

This game (if you can call it one) has flawed play mechanics, one can't simply start a game and already be greeted by the dreaded you lose screen. It's just not acceptable. I want to be engaged in a good game.

Although the original Asteroids is a vector based game, it is still a more enjoyable experience in my opinion and in some compilations you can get an enhanced overlay to make the game look sort of more modern.

If you like these kinds of games checkout Atari Vault or Atari 50 : The Anniversary Collection.

It should also be noted that Atari has been remastering certain games and releasing them as stand alone games which some were picked up by GOG on their site for sale.

Overall this game is a big pass or a check it out and uninstall it to see the experience if you will not worth the time to install it.
