This game is so amazing.


Let me just say that this game is probably the best game of all. It doesn't get you too captivated with itself so you won't spend countless hours of wasting your life. This game is more of a "calming your mind game" or "enjoy your time game" if those examples make sense. It's perfect for places where your bored and want something for the time to pass by. The artwork and the soundtrack are a perfect combination for relaxation(did you see that rhyme?). The only thing that's wrong with itself is the fact that they stopped making updates for this game. It still looks like it was for the iPhone 4 or the older version of the iPod. Even though this game still has great potential for even being a better game if they start getting updates back up and maybe come with new ideas.

Engrossing and calming


I really enjoy this game. I wasn't sure I would, but it's calming and addictive. I would give it five stars if you could eat EVERYTHING in the universe that is floating around - not just the things orbiting planets. If you could eat everything and have different things happen when you eat them (not just the cold of the ice cream bar), it would be more interesting, especially as you go along in the game. After a while, you run out of unique things to see (other then the end giant planets of each level) and it's just routine - calming and engrossing routine, nonetheless. :) ALSO, I questioned why each of the end planets had such depressing themes. Why not let them be marginally uplifting? The art is GORGEOUS, the comet is so happy most of the time, and then we reach the end planets and it's all "DESPAIR, GLOOM AND DOOM". LOL!

Truly wonderful in every way

Alright people, I been playing video games for a hot minute, and this is THE COOLEST MOST BEAUTIFULLY ANIMATED GAME I HAVE EVER SEEN. Such a cool style. The gameplay itself is just carefree and mind-erasing. It's great. Very different from anything else
I've ever seen... Sometimes I wish I could just get a big screenshot of this game and put it on my wall. Play this please, and I hope you are reading this, guys who made this game, because you got something right.
