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

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.

"Rymdkapsel feels tailor-made for iOS in both form and function, and its elegant, subtle constituent parts nest within one another as neatly as its four-block tetrominos snap together along a space station corridor."
- 5/5 stars, Joseph Leray, toucharcade.com

"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, kotaku.com

"The game punishes the greedy, and rewards the prudent. If youre attentive, youll notice that theres actually a happy medium between the two: optimal efficiency."
- Ryan Rigney, wired.co.uk

"Rymdkapsel combines spatial puzzling, tower defence and base-building into a brilliantly coherent and stylish whole."
- Christian Donlan, eurogamer.net

Been waiting for this. Not quite normally my thing, but it's been looking interesting.
May wait for some vidy uploads, I'll need just a tad more selling to cross the line of $5

I've probably pumped 20+ hours into the Vita version! Despite it's ultra-minimalistic (yet achingly pretty) aesthetics, Rymdkapsel is super deep and gloriously addictive.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. In fact, I'm gonna grab it again tonight so I can play it on my iPad's bigger screen!

Thanks echo.

I'm not bagging it, I just lol'd how if you just watch any video of this game, such as that short one by TA, it leaves you (well me anyway), thinking "what the heck was that all about!?". Lol.
In this case I think it's a good thing. I'll likely be getting it. Just find watching videos of it, with no prior understanding, makes it funny to watch.
