NOVA Black Holes


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Start with a star and play over 50 levels to watch it become a black hole. Hurl your star across spacetime to hit your target. Navigate fields of cosmic objects and hazards—like neutron stars and quasars—avoiding some, and slingshotting around others, in your quest to become more massive. Reach the end, and your star collapses….to become a black hole.

Customer Reviews


My kids loved playing with the different scenarios and have been much more interested in cosmology. It's a great demonstration of things that happen on a scale we don't really get to see. Thanks, Nova!


Looks like it might be fun but it crashed a lot and I could not get past level 2.

I do not like this game

All you do is smash stars together also I am the first to rate this app
