Starshine - catch the stars with your comet by clicking on the centres of gravity at the right times. Short, relaxing, charming Flash game.

Yes. Relaxing. Right up to the jarringly abrupt ending.

Well, I can't seem to figure out how to leave comments or suggestions on the app itself, but if the author ever sees this, here's mine:

1. have a click to start button or action - don't start with the comet already flying
2. don't score by time, score by number of stars clicked - if you have to score at all!
3. have more and better puzzles, that involve clicking just the right stars in the right sequence - that way, you don't have to keep score.

Otherwise, yes; short, relaxing, charming flash. Just needs more to become a game.

My screen saver is a more challenging game than this.

Neat idea, poor execution.

It didn't relax me at all.

Now I need a drink.
