@vicky_molokh-unsilenceMonica crank has an ending. Finished, and... there is no reason/way to play after.

@SPArcheon What's the ending / plot anyway? I didn't get pretty much any story as far as I played.

@vicky_molokh-unsilenceMonica the ending / plot is rough, as the rest of the game.
You start from a crank that is as annoying as it can get, then you somehow quickly grow past that. You enter an upgrade phase that gives some variety, but you exhaust the "new things" far before the game ends, so after that you are left only upgrading numbers without any new mechanic.
Anyway, the idea is that after a certain milestone you get the ability to move from planet to planet.
at that point, you basically "farm" keycodes from planets with a certain tech level to gain access to the next one.
After a while you reach tech level 5 and it seems that there is nothing left to do.
but if you go to the four corner of the galaxy map, there are four "hidden" planets that are only visible when you get near enough.
at each of the corners you fight a boss.
After defeating the boss at each location you go to the center, activate a final button... and then the galaxy collapses like a black hole, leaving only a black screen.
The black screen has a single button "send encrypted message".
You press it... and then nothing.
you are left only with a black screen.
During the game you can find (not needed for progress) 20 encoded messages.
Decoding them suggest what the real plot is.
Each message describes the journey of a survivor of a race whose planet was destroyed by some enemy. They start a revenge to wipe out them... the messages don't describe what happened but only "complete destruction" and a last line "it was a big mistake"
So, either it is a time loop or more probably an endless loop of revenges between two races that by now don't even remember why they started fighting.
kinda of a weird ending that can be nice to see... but if you wanted a short game with a "what the" ending... Fisher Diver is far better.
But Fisher Diver is a flash game.

btw @vicky_molokh-unsilenceMonica, fell free to ask more questions if the description above is not enough for you
 
@SPArcheon Oh, sorry for not replying. I'm having a busy week. Thanks for the plot details.
 
No worry at all. Like I think... BESW? said, this is internet, no assumption will be made if you don't reply in the next 5 seconds. :P
A call, sleep, eating, whatever, just answer when you have time and want to ^_^
Just letting you know that if you want I can be more specific
