Sounds a lot like "Papers Please"?

So far, it's a little dull. You rotate a platform around a planet by tapping left/right buttons up to three times in a row for three different rotation speeds.

Things fly towards the planet, but the pace is pretty slow and I've been at it for a few minutes. I'm getting one or two things every few seconds.

You catch them, and they have two qualities: a flag and a number. If they don't match both (you have a guidebook) you reject them. Get too many wrong and you get an F, I guess (it keeps a running grade). It seems like it's an endless game.

I don't see any of the elements that made Papers Please great, such as the addition of new rules or the desk-management of your guidebooks. About the only challenge is that because the screen is rectangular, you have a lot less notice from things entering on the short axis.

There's a free version on the App Store. I recommend starting there.

They're using the same space background that the Rogue Vertex series has used since 2008. Funny coincidence.

Beyond the challenge not really evolving, it doesn't even track your best results. Cute start of a concept but not complete.
