Escape the Red Giant is a top-down launching game. You jump between tiny planets and try to get upwards as fast as possible. The goal is to escape an ever-growing star, the Red Giant, for as long as you can, and gain a highscore while you're at it.
Left to go counter-clockwise, right to go clockwise. Up to jump, hold jump before landing to crush asteroid. Every time you reach a landmark, sun speeds up. Space makes player jump and crush asteroids automatically.
