«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
- 3 game modes: Gravity, Pure & Supernova
- Beautiful particle effects
- All-time & 24 Hours online Leader board

ORBITAL is based on Gimme Friction Baby by Wouter Visser.

Customer Reviews

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! 😃

Cheesy music now!

Orbital is a highly addictive game. It used to be meditative, with wonderful misic. When I allowed the app to update, suddenly I was stuck with the new music. I have to turn it off, because it's unbearable, cheesy lounge music. I wish we had the option to choose between the old and new music. Because the meditative quality has been lost with the lower quality music, i went from playing my game for hours,to...not playing it at all. BTW...i paid for the full app. Please give us choices!

Can't Stop, Won't Stop

I like a lot of games on the iPod, but I simply can't stop playing this game. I already have more than 76 hours of play time and will add 100 hours more, without a doubt. Any time I have a few minutes, I fire this bad boy up. Thank you for such a great game!
