WHAT THE CRITICS SAY

«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.»
- John Bardinelli (jayisgames.com)

«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 (pocketgamer.co.uk)

«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 (iphoneincanada.ca)

«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 (toucharcade.com)

«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 (thatvideogameblog.com)

«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 (148apps.com)

«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 (iphonefootprint.com)

GAMEPLAY

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.

ORBITAL is based on Gimme Friction Baby by Wouter Visser.

What's New

Version 1.4.1

We are celebrating 5 years of Orbital and we’re happy to present a small but much anticipated update with a range of improvements.

The newest version of Orbital displays nicely on high resolutions and supports current 16:9 screens natively. And since it is built as a universal App it runs better on the iPad than ever.

Finally you can again connect Orbitals Leaderboard to Facebook to compete with your friends in all game modes.

Also the game now keeps the score if it gets suspended and the game music now stops if you start listening to your own music.

Thank you for playing Orbital – have fun!

Too much

Mctnte

I loved this game. Been out for awhile. Re uploaded time and again. Very fun, simple, yet unique. The update was a pleasant surprise but....frankly, the game is too loud. One of my favorite aspects was the original sound effects. How things exploded but was still kind of muted so it wasn't overkill. I loved the tennis ball sounds when it bumped or .....basically I loved the original sound fx. I know u want spruce things up and making it more crisp is a nice touch but cannonball explosions etc is too much-too loud. At least put in an option to choose original game play.

A great game, but...

A great game all these years later, but I would still really like a mode that more closely mimics the speed and simplicity of the original version by Wouter Visser. I don't like having the results of your shot obscured by fireworks, and the increased speed of the game means aiming is more a matter of luck than it was with the slower version. Also, I'd really like to have an undo version in some non-competitive mode. All too often I spend a long time setting up a great board only to ruin it with one stupid shot. I'd like to have an undo so I can see how that board could play out.

Fixed bug, back to 5 stars!

I love this game and play it all the time. With the fix to ensure scores do not reset when you pause, it's back to the top of the list. Bitforge deserves huge kudos for taking the feedback and quickly addressing the issues identified by their customers. Will go out of my way to check out other titles by these folks. Thank you!
