App description: "Rymdkapsel makes its more ornate competitors feel needlessly garnished."
- New York Times,

rymdkapsel is a meditative strategy game set in space. Take on the challenge of building the best possible station by commanding your minions and exploring the galaxy around you.

Imagine a strategy game where you don't have to worry about selecting units or mounting attacks on your enemies, but rather can focus on building the best base possible.

That's what rymdkapsel is all about.

"Some games nearly make me miss my subway stop. Some games tempt me to keep on playing them while I'm walking down the street. This is one of them."
- Stephen Totilo,

It is definitely my favorite game and I havent even beaten the first level yet.
- Trent Wolbe,

"Rymdkapsel combines spatial puzzling, tower defence and base-building into a brilliantly coherent and stylish whole. This one's worth keeping an eye on."
- Christian Donlan,

"Besides Eliss, Edge was one of those few games that defined the iOS platform (...) rymdkapsel may be the next one."
- Filip Visnjic,

I said that it's totally playable. Do I need to have multiple arguments so that I can convince you?

1. The fingers were never blocking the screen In the way that it would make the gameplay less... Intense
2. I could read all the text just fine, even on a non-retina (3Gs) display.
3. I could control all the minions exactly how I wanted to. There were no problems in tapping exactly where I wanted.

The word "totally" means exactly what I wanted to express and it's not just a word I put in there for fun.

It's fine on an iPhone. I've played it more on iPhone than on iPad.

Different people are different.
Personally I find this is a game that I want to replay, even though there is nothing more I can "accomplish" within it (there is a high score table, but I don't think I will get any better). Other games I delete as soon as I have finished them and gained all the achievements. YMMV.

Finally got this. Excellent game. Challenging, awesome minimalist style, a lot of depth in how you build your base (just got destroyed because one guy was carrying materials and wasn't able to make to the weapons module in time)

In case you didn't know, the game is coming to PC in January, with "two additional game modes with new monoliths and more missions". Would be cool if we get that content as well

Edit: yes, we'll be getting that content too. I asked the developer on Twitter
more stuff is coming with the pc release, it'll be available for mobile as a free update eventually too.

Have played for about two+ hours now, absolutely loving it. You really have to plan out your base well, be wary of the wave timer and defense coverage

Game is quite challenging, still haven't been able to fully research the first monolith yet but I'm getting better at building more efficient bases. That's the kind of subtle progress I like. My best game was 53 minutes, but my guys were too spread out and then we got destroyed

This game was on sale at the beginning of the month; coinciding with its one year release anniversary, I presume. I picked it up and really enjoyed it.

I agree with a lot of what people have already said, I would like to see more. Not to justify the price, but because it has so much (seemingly) un-tapped potential.

Playing the game on ipad is easier than the iphone; but the iphone is playable. Every now and then I get the notification dropdown instead of the game but that is tolerable.

I was able to complete all three achievements in 4 game sessions. My best time to all monoliths is 41:02. I can survive 35 waves, but then it all falls apart.

The PC version has been updated with more features. I would like to see those features on the IOS version. I spend most of my game time either on iphone or ipad.
