App description: To set foot on the soil of the asteroids, to lift by hand a rock from the Moon, to observe Mars from a distance of several tens of kilometers, to land on its satellite or even on its surface, what can be more fantastic? From the moment of using rocket devices a new great era will begin...

Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky, 1896

PLANET DESCENT

Piloting an asteroid mining ship; you must grab, pull and smash your way through 6 physics based planets fraught with manmade and natural dangers to retrieve a raw source of energy found only at their very core.

GRAPNEL

Although unarmed, your ship is equipped with a grapnel hook capable of lifting rocks many times the size of itself. Pick up, pull, throw, smash and topple rocks with your grapnel using real world physics to solve puzzles and descend through each level.

DESCEND

Set over 3 stages, each world challenges you to break through the planets atmosphere, destroy its defences and descend into its very core to recover a rare but volatile source of energy.

Nice game for those who enjoy thrust-style gameplay. Shame you can't adjust controls position on the iPad though.

Yeah, I'm digging the art as well...but I don't get the whole 3 level/6 stage thing. Gabe, anyone...care to elaborate?

6 worlds, each split into 3 stages. Sufficient amount of collectibles from each stage allows you to open up the next world. Fairly standard stuff really. No IAP as far as I can tell through world 1.

Sorry for the Delay. Gameloft screwed me total over with their Launch Tonight.

I`m already on it. Here is the Filesize:

Little concerned that this might be on the short side, but Sanuku's video is beyond awesome. Love literally everything about this game.

While this shares a lot with Krashlander graphically, it just looks downright ugly on the iPad's retina display. Saying "Stunning HD visual style" in the app description is somewhat misleading, and should at least have "on iPhone" added to the sentence if it is indeed retina on phones.
