Nice game.
You should post a screenshot so that people can see immediately how it looks like.

Also it took me a minute to understand the game, because the fps lies too high and it goes a little bit to fast in my opinion.
On a faster computer it will be impossible to play. You should put a maximum fps by using a clock.

You should put a maximum fps by using a clock.

Please dont cap the FPS based on a clock, instead, leave the framerate independent with a possibility of vsync, and then lock the logicloop to a clock. That way the game can draw smoothly but at the same time deliver the same performance on all hardwares!

will test game now

A few seconds ingame it crashes (probably due to some internal segfault). I managed to get ahold of a chipmunk exception:

Aborting due to Chipmunk error: Cannot remove a static or sleeping shape that was not added to the space. (Removed twice maybe?)
   Failed condition: cpSpaceContainsShape(space, shape)

Nice game :) I have a few things that you could do to spice it up a little:

- Put instructions in-game. A lot of people (including me) don't look at readmes and right away I didn't know what to do :P

- Maybe at specific heights change the background to space, then of planets, then galaxies then who knows what :P

- Another thing about the height, maybe add some little easter eggs or a completion height.

Other than that it's pretty fun :) Further features could be local multiplayer or internet scores

Thanks everybody for the posts. Seems that I have fixed the issue with chipmunk physics removing the shapes. With this I hope that the game can be playable without any errors. The link is the same.

Thanks for the tips aBallofWin :). Now I need sleep. Later I will see vsync stuff and so.
