This is a lovely, relaxing, challenging game, but there are a couple of issues; firstly, there is one setting you can change - sounds on/off, but it doesn't remember the change. If I turn sound off it's for a reason, don't turn it back on again until I ask you to. Secondly a dozen or so levels in you need precision, but, with my combination of finger and screen size at least, there is none the tiniest movement adjusts the trajectory hugely and there is no way to alter this. With those two issues addressed this would go up to a four or potentially a five.
Must change display so it doesn't chug battery life. Also, slight gradients on the orbs and adding spin as well as an ability to add moons / comets / stars (instead of only planets and black holes) and since the music is the only preference, maybe just have a music on/off toggle where "preferences" list. Also, being able to set a quick restart point would make it way more fun too. This game needs a zoom function and larger play area too, would be loads of fun making entire systems
Idea is good. And game is good till level 2 , then you understand you can just randomly place planets doesn't matter if they fall into black hole after completing the required nos. And your level is upgraded. It should be little challenging , it is required to make 8 , but I dropped one on each and level is passed, it required 6 planets, I sent all together and they rotated for once and my level is clear but they fell Into it. And by the way stars revolve around black hole 🙂, planets revolve around stars and then satellites 😊
Too good for words I'm very emotional right now. This game has the Mal Mal for your eyeball so soothing and luscious and immersive and also one more thing it's really leisurely it's like a cerebral loincloth. You will relieve yourself of all your cares as you said planets swirling beautifully around the holes of Blackness. I'm really enjoying myself right now I'm going to get back to playing I just wanted to suggest that you put this in the little memory thing on the screen a thing. Okay kids I'm going back to the internet
I've been looking for an app similar to Orbit for years. There were some online flash simulators that were similar close, but they never tried to make a game out of using g simple gravity and massive bodies. This is a fun simulator with a relaxing theme. It runs well and I appreciate the inclusion of the sandbox if you bought the full version. (though maybe $2.99 is a tad much)
Fun physics sim Orbit is a fun, original, and well crafted physics game from a small, and obviously passionate developer. The game revolves (haha accidental pun) around a mechanic of launching various sized planets into orbits around black holes. Different twists to this mechanic are added one by one at a very natural pace that challenges you to come up with increasingly creative orbits. The game sports a simplistic but beautiful art style that I'd very good at making everything clear from the beginning. Great game!
It's finally here. I'm super excited to bring you...publishing!
You can now publish levels that you create in the Sandbox for everyone to play. When I say everyone, that means everyone; even if you don't have Sandbox, you can play all the levels created by the community.
I hope you enjoy the virtually limitless content that this provides. And as always, thank you so much for making Orbit what it is today.
Create planets, put asteroids into orbit, tweak gravity and share your photos!
Above the ivory snow lies a sleepy mountain village, brimming with adventure.
