"incredibly charming...the look, sound and mechanics combine to create a calming, zen-like experience." - Touch Arcade
"If you were looking for a reason to reach-out to your grandmother, this would be it...This is the game that will warm the Grinch-like heart of ours, calcified from years of terrible, terrible shooters and social games." - Kill Screen
VOYAGER is a new game for iPhone and iPad and is 100% hand-crafted using needle felted wool and stop-motion animated.
You feel as though you are floating through a dream.
Zoom through space! Avoid planes, satellites, asteroids, planets and unexpected creatures lurking in the darkest depths of this galaxy and beyond. Tilt to control. Press and hold the screen to slow down time, and help get yourself through even the trickiest of asteroid belts.
Make it as far as you can, or make it to the end if you have enough skill...

"This title is truly something that adds something different to the formula... it’s something that must be fully seen to be understood." - QJ.net

This game is beautiful but really needs some hints to teach the player. The plus sign for help threw me and should be changed to a question mark. I played the game several times before I knew about slowing down. Similarly I died a frustrating number of time until I discovered the screen wrap around. Arrows to show first time players where to go would have greatly helped. After so many deaths the same music got so grating that I deleted the game. It's a shame since it has potential.
lots of fun
Gorgeous graphics, fun music and great controls- I love how you can move off the side of the screen and appear on the opposite side. The graphics make this so unique.
Fun stuff, dont know how to change my ship though
