Wonderful It is a simple puzzle game but even so it is far and away better than all of these micro-transaction farm/city/castle building games... the art style and imaginative plot is really quite lovely, the music is nice and it is only $0.99. I worry about the length and replay value but so long as it lasts more than the time it takes me to eat a $0.99 hamburger I suppose it is worth it. My only complaint is that I could not find a way to go back and see the completed narrative for each constellation that has been finished. I feel like the start menu could be padded out to include something like that along .
Shouldn't have had to pay for this. This should be free or add more levels. I could make a game like this easy. No challenge way to short and no replay value. Like i spent about 30 mins on this game. Can't do anything with this. My 99 cents could have gone a much more longer way then this trash. Want a refund.
A story and a puzzler. Brilliant. Trinket Studios' Orion's Forge is a unique take on a puzzler; seamlessly pairing charming narratives, beautiful artwork and character concepts, and smooth "play on" transitions enveloped in a great soundtrack. Unfortunately, the gameplay is so smooth and intuitive, it makes the game seem even shorter than it already is. But how much is a dollar worth to you? To me, a game should be judged by its ingenuity and execution, rather than how many hours you can waste on it. In this case, Orion's Forge is so different than anything else many of us are used to. To the point where you may not like it. For me, its clever gameplay and well polished presentation made me crave for more. The object of this game is to guide the star energy to the finish, moving magnetic towers and avoiding obstacles. You can "easily" complete it by guessing, but if you like to think, you'll enjoy and appreciate this game's use of magnet physics along with other surprises that are gradually introduced throughout the game. And the stories. I smiled at every one of them. In short, I loved this game, however, it isn't for everyone. Read the other reviews and purchase with caution.
Fun little puzzle game Fun little puzzle game but a prime example of what a lack of sound design can do. I kept expecting some sort of explosion or something when the stars for and nothing. Its petty but its something. All in all though a good little game
Very short Price reflective of this however, so all in all a worthwhile purchase. I felt the experience could have been improved with another piece, or two, of music and with some sound effects here and there. Such as a noise that plays when you change a towers polarity, noises for events like the individual stars being collected, or impacting on another tower and blowing up etc. Maybe towers have their own ambient noises, depending on their polarity and emit a pulse of sound, when they activate, etc.
Fun, creative game, but... ...waaaaaaaaay too short and easy to charge even a buck for. Finished the entire game in >45 minutes. Add some length and it gets 4-5 stars easy. As it stands, I feel ripped off.
