Float, jump and fly around a surreal, 3D planetary system as a comet.
"you're just hangin' out, chillin', relaxin' ... the solar system is yours in this video game" - Touch Arcade
"There is a certain exhilaration in swooping down from orbit, rebounding off a planet, and flying upward again, travelling off to the distant stars." - 148Apps
"All in all, if you enjoy motion based flying games, you won’t want to miss Unknown Orbit, which has a gorgeous space theme, an entrancing soundtrack, and challenging but rewarding gameplay." - AppAdvice
Use the planet’s hills and valleys to launch yourself into deep space and hurtle through sparkling firefly clouds to reach the orbiting moons and beyond.
Space out and enter a state of flow with an entrancing vibe and soundtrack by Rhys Lindsay. Perfect the smoothest landings and highest jumps, and glide across a strange orbital landscape.
Two nearby stars are melting away your comet's icy core, so you must absorb snow balls that are scattered around the environment to prolong your life.
String together moves to gain an ever increasing and limitless point combo, then compete with your friends on the Game Center Leaderboard.
So fun you'll lose time
The music is low-key almost ambient but perfectly suited. The physics are loose but not 100% predictable which just adds to the fun.
The sense of space when you get going is extremely satisfying. I hope that "space" gets larger as they progress because this would be one of my all time favorite games if you could see worlds in the distance that you could eventually gain enough momentum to reach.
And having a few populated and destroying them by bouncing along wouldn't be unwelcome.
Overall if you like quiet almost zen-like games with minimal controls, music and no sense of pressure check this game out. It's my goto zone-out game now.
I could not be any more pleased with any game app other than this one. Nobody else has thought of using the physics of manipulating an orbit and as someone who doesn't like the clutter of useless apps this one has a safe spot here on my phone. There is a need for more content but I am hopeful it will be soon. Excellent game hands down
The simple fact that I am here reviewing it says something as I never review apps. This game is pure fun and exploration! It was only 1 dollar which is a very small price to pay for an app this fun!! All I can say is GET IT you won't regret it!!!!
The only complaint I have is that when your not connected to wifi it lags, a lot.
That and I wish there were more objectives and a lot more planets. Like if there were many planets in the distance, even some that are similar to the starting planet and if you got a lot of momentum you could hop from planet to planet.
If you added these things this game would be truly legendary.
