Games like this are the reasons I love indie games. Superb game. But I dont know if someone will buy it or not, still you guys can try it and buy it later just to support the devs.

10/10

This game looks gorgeous and tries to expand on its mechanics in varied and interesting ways.

However, I have a hard time reconciling the demanding and arbitrary goals with the frustrating movement in a way that provides enjoyment. Slingshotting my spaceship around a moon should feel exhilarating rather than tedious. To the extent that this game succeeds as a series of puzzles to be solved, it also fails by making the execution of solutions a bore to carry out, robbing the player of any joy in their triumph. On top of this gameplay loop, the after-mission scoring punishes the player for not conserving enough fuel/succeeding quickly enough/etc. The idea of playing through the same mission again to conserve an extra one percent of my fuel is painful enough to make me turn back from the game completely, and the promise of trudging through another solution is not intriguing enough to keep me moving forward.

Easy to learn, hard to master. It starts out with easy missions but they get more complex and difficult as you go. It's a pretty fun game though; it's a nice break from the shoot-'em-up games. It requires a lot of patience, but I find it very fun! Love this game! :)

The idea of Solar Flux is to collect plasma particles and bring them back to sun to equalize its energy. Object seems easy, but add to this asteroids, limited fuel, solar bursts and short time. Just imagine collapsing sun... to stabilize the whole process it's important to be quick and deliver plasma energy as quick as possible. Steering is a little bit tricky and depends on recoil force of ship's thrusters. 4 different galaxies, many different stars.

This game is addictive and fun if you like strategy type games, and its very nice visually too. I'd like to see more casual games like this or simillar, I'm enjoying it so far. It has a lot of levels each one a different challenge, please consider giving it a go, I did and I have enjoyed playing this little gem, I also found it Quiet relaxing too. It is a nice change from other more tedious and aggressive type games.
