Description

In the not so distant future, chunkles are a lucrative resource in which everybody wants. The only way to get it though, is to destroy a planet and extract the chunkles from its very core. Take control and build your very own intergalactic mining fleet. Tap as fast as you can to aim your laser cannons and destroy a diverse galaxy of planets, all in the name of glorious profit! Travel back in time with your planetary destruction research and create powerful future weapons that can unleash a devastating torrent of power. It’s planetary bubble wrap, all sealed and packaged for your phone!
