"Have you ever wondered if there was an app out there with the soul purpose of nurturing your spirit in the most beautiful way possible? Kometen is a game for the iPhone and iPad that does just this with elegance and grace." – AppDiscover
“This is a remarkable addition to the app store that will separate itself from the crowded offerings of the same old same old with its own style and polish. Taking a seat next to Zen Bound, Kometen utilizes the unique aspects of the device perfectly and will be that app you want to share (show off perhaps?) with friends.” — No dpad

I think the artwork is beautiful and the soundtrack is also amazing, this is exactly the type of game I want on my iPad. It would be nice if the tutorial was a little more comprehensive though, it took me a while to figure out that clicking on the little guy brought up stats, and how to change to a different mission. I seriously love this app though :) I want more planets!! Haha
Fantastic indie game. Reminds me of an old game called fl0w for some reason. The art, the music and overall feeling make for great experience I think well worth your money. Although some Are likely to find this game pointless, I am not one of 'em.
The explainations are okay, the game is repetitive. Has good art and a decent soundtrack. Overall an avarage app. Oh... and you might want to know the new update added nothing except better art and more space junk to eat, but also removed the PAINTINGS- Which are the whole concept of the game.
