Default Certainly worth it

I bought this game and didn't sit up from my couch until I finished it hours later. Seriously, this game has a captivating storyline, intuitive controls, enjoyable VO and it's about space exploration, idk what else I could ask for Very much recommended.

Great...short game.
Finished in 90 mins, and it has not much replay value. No "free play" mode
I hope future episodes will be free for those who lready paid.

Amazing new game from developers "Blackish Games."
I found it on the front page of the app store, purchased it, and loving it!
Great visuals, storyline and voiceovers, along with smooth controls.

On sale!! $2.99-->$0.99

Not much has been posted about this game, but I would echo VoxelBoy's sentiments. This is a great little game for $1. The controls are innovative, think Asteroids meets Bombardiers Guild. I love the vector based movement indicators. The game may be short. I've only played through the first few levels, but it looks like additional episodes are planned, so hopefully the game does well enough that the devs follow through. The story is enjoyable, and even though the game is arranged in short, objective based levels, it still moves along nicely. The minimalist graphics and expansive, open space definitely gives you the feel of isolation.

If you like Asteroids, Bombardiers Guild and Space Miner, you should definitely grab this game while on sale. 5/5!

Default Game Impressions

As has been noted in the app store, landing a 2D ship on a 3D rotating asteroid can be a little frustrating..though it only took me 4 tries to land in the right spot at worst.

The game itself is a fairly nice gravity/orbital mechanics game - though you don't have any guns & you only land on asteroids, not blow them up.

My biggest complaint about the game is its length (very, very short- finished in just over an hour) & its lack of modes outside the story. No free play whatsoever - I'd love to be able to fly around and just land on asteroids, maybe mining for additional resources or something.

This game is really just a little bit special. Absorbing from the get go and honestly one of the best "experiences" to be had on the app store for 99c.
