«ORBITAL is a game of skill, it's a game of strategy, it's a game of reflexes, and it's a game you will keep front and center of your iPhone for weeks on end.»

«A picnic to understand, but a marathon to get beyond the first few minutes, Orbital's simple style is perfect for those looking for fill the odd spare moment.» 8/10
- Keith Andrew (

«Orbital is the most visually appealing brick breaker type game that I have ever laid eyes on and had the chance to play.» 5/5
- Mike (

«While there are already a few iPhone games that share the same gameplay mechanics as Orbital, none of them look anywhere near as cool.»
- Eli Hodapp (

«BitForge has managed to combine the addictive gameplay of Peggle and the beauty of Geometry Wars, two digital forms of crack, into one easy to use package.»
- Chad George (

«Orbital takes simple gameplay and dresses it up with a unique “gravity” feature and enhanced graphics. The game can be very frustrating at times, but that won’t keep you from coming back for another try.» 4/5
- Will Raskin (

«Orbital has got fantastic graphics and unfussy features. Come to think of it, there are really no negative points about the game. Good going, Bitforge!» 5/5
- Yoyo (



You must shoot orbs into a grid with your cannon. The orb you fired will expand until it touches a wall or another orb. Each orb contains the number ‘3’, which decreases by one every time it is hit. After 3 hits they explode and you earn a point. The game could be endless… There is just one condition: a shot orb must not touch the death line above the cannon! If it does, the game is over.

A simple concept to rack your brains and nerves.



- Single & Two player mode

Customer Reviews

Original soundtrack PLEASE!!!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the ORIGINAL soundtrack--at least as an option. NOT a fan of the new one...and it totally throws my rhythm off with the watered down sounds. :-(

Minus 1 star for new soundtrack. It's really so unpleasant I can't play for long anymore. The thrill, and "hook", is gone. :-(

..... The old review .....

Only simple at first glance!

Very pretty graphics, fun to play, I'm hooked!

The first few games were tough (what? 3 points?!), but then the "just one more try" factor kicked in and this is now my #1 most-played game! Money well spent!

P.S. I want Gravity Supernova too!!

Thanks for the update!!!

New Review:

Great job to the developers for their continued support of this game! Love the new retina graphics! Looks so much better now. I hope Game Center and achievements will also be added in a future update.

Old Review:

This game badly needs an update for retina support. The graphics do not hold up anymore on the newest hardware (iPhone 4). It would also be nice if you would add support for multitasking and Game Center with achievements, but the graphics update is truly a necessity. This is otherwise a great pick up and play game!

Looking forward to more!

The app itself is awesome! Beautiful, colorful graphics and strategic gameplay are central to the appeal of the game. If I were to take away a star it would be for the change in soundtrack (because the first soundtrack really was super awesome) and the lack of new versions since April 2011. But on the version that is out I'd have to stick with 5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Bring us more Bitforge! 😃
