Left-Shift - Switch Modes between using your Magnet Ray and feeding your alien!
While in Magnet Mode, hold left-click to attract Metal objects which threaten Earth. While holding an object, hold right-click and release right-click to push it away. Hold for 1 second for maximum power.
While in Alien Mode (ship colored red), run over Organic objects like Space Chickens from Earth to replenish your energy. If you run out of energy, Zirlarq the alien will go into a rage and steer the ship towards the closest bite to eat! Unfortunately, that may happen to be close to the sun.
Avoid the Sun and keep Earth safe as long as you can!

HOW DO YOU PLAY?
There is a tutorial button on the main menu. Unfortunately we didn't have time to make a better one. Edit: I've added concise control instructions below the play window.
