Ed Groover Games's comments:
Starbit Twist is a 2D action puzzle game designed for touch screen devices. You control Starbit, a new star exploring the Universe. Touch the screen to orbit the nearest object (the object near Starbit, not near where you're touching the screen), release the screen to fly through space. Make quick jumps to speed up, orbit for a while to slow down. Guide Starbit through 25 exciting levels and three difficulty levels.

The game is simple (made by a one person development team) but addictive. Combine quick reactions, and the ability to plan ahead, to reach the end of each level and unlock the next one. At the beginning of each level you can see the entire area so you can plan your attack, and then it zooms in as you make your way through the obstacles. The higher difficulty levels present more obstacles and faster movement speeds.

Thank you for taking the time to hear about my game, and I hope you will check it out. I look forward to any feedback you may offer.

Starbit Twist

Starbit Twist is a 2D action / puzzle one-button game where you control a star named Starbit, exploring the universe trying to find a safe place to call home. Touch and hold the screen to Orbit other stars (touching anywhere on the screen will do, but a corner out of your view is the best place to touch), release the screen to leave orbit to navigate. Avoid obstacles to stay alive, reach the wormhole to exit the zone and unlock the next one. 25 zones, and three difficulty levels. No IAP / microtransactions!

I just released version 1.1, with an improved new-player experience, some new sounds, improved GUI, bug fixes and more! I would love any feedback on this new version that you care to give. The iOS version is free this weekend only!
