Retro space shooter

Just wanted to share a game prototype I did a while ago to learn Unreal Engine. You are a good spaceship that shoots a bunch of evil spaceships. You can jump from planet to planet to encounter more evil spaceships to shoot. Good elevator pitch right?

Before this thing dies on my hard drive I figured I might as well share it on here.

The thing that took me a while to figure out is how to snap the ship to the planets. I really like Unreal Engine because it allowed me to make a closest point on sphere node which ultimately made all this work.

Apologies for the crap audio, sounds better on my machine. 🙉
Let me know what you think!
