"The unique gameplay is difficult to master but so satisfying" –

"New Orbit manages to accomplish something very rare in the increasingly all-encompassing video game industry: it does something new. I’ve never played anything quite like it."

★ TRAILER: Visit the BLACKISH link to watch!


Earth is gone.
Only some survived.
Everyone who could, fled the planet and settled in the asteroid belt.
Years passed, factions formed, WAR ensued over scarce resources and precious knowledge.
You are a young engineer of the Node Collective, lost deep inside enemy territory. Your mothership was on a secret mission on the far side of the Triterian Empire, but you weren't senior enough to know its goal and purpose. So here you are - in a tiny, badly damaged shuttle - alone amidst the burning remains of what used to be the pride of your crew - with nothing but the cold voice of your computer to keep you company.


• Realistic Gravitation: Feel the gravitational pull, enter orbits, master landing on asteroids!
• Adventure: Lost deep inside hostile territory, in a tiny, badly damaged shuttle. A mobile-sized story to remember!
• Full recorded voiceover for the entire game!
• Bonus Playground (unlocks when you complete the game)
• 10 GameCenter Achievements to earn


Touch anywhere on the screen to fire your thrusters and get your ship to move.
Let go and you'll continue to drift forever on.
Your velocity is influenced by all gravitational forces in the area. Don't fight against gravity. Learn to use it to your advantage! Play with it! Dance!

Best iPad game ever(still is sadly)

Its been a long time since I played this. I was searching the App Store for a new space sim game and I found nothing worth while, probably because my expectations are so high from playing this game. I search online every so often to see if any movement has been made on episode 2 with no luck. This remains my favorite iOS game. Someone please buy the engine off the devs and make a full length game. Charge 6 dollars, no iap, no ads, no bs, just tell a good (long) story with the game design as is and we'll be forever grateful.
My previous reviews:
So sad this didn't successfully crowd fund!
I still think about it all the time. Here is my old review:
I cannot wait for the second chapter of New Orbit. There are many aspects of this game that make it fantastic: realistic gravity/orbital mechanics, engaging plot that has you on the edge of your seat, believable game world rich with details, simple controls but challenging scenarios, great voice acting, and an immersive feel. I'm hooked and will buy the second chapter, which will have many more aspects to it, the day it comes out. This is exactly the type of game I have been craving and I can't find anything that comes close to it. Big thanks to the developers.

Wow. Simply Amazing

This game... The only reason I can imagine it's not in the Top Ten of the App Store is because it's made by an indie studio (which it is) that is kind of down on its luck (which Blackish Studios is). The story is compelling, the physics are fantastic, and the gravitation engine is just plain great. If only this game got more attention, it would definitely be one of the App Store's all-time greats. However, due to a lack of funds, Blackish can't pay to have fake reviews and such. This game deserves the $2.99 I paid for it. Every cent was more than worth it. Despite it being a semi-short (about 2 hours for the story) game, New Orbit is a great experience for anyone. Help an Indie studio out. Enjoy a great story. Feel the amazing physics. Just buy it already. New Orbit.

One of the best mobile games

I personally don't like mobile games, since most of them are just a senseless cash grab. But this game would make one of my best mobile games ever. It takes simplicity and gives it a simple story, but it's also very addictive. It has the perfect mix of innovation and good gameplay. But this game is up there with Thomas Was Alone and Faster Than Light. There are only one or two bad things about this game and me pointing them out would be me nitpicking. So play this game you will not regret it.
