Very nice, ambient puzzle game. Visually stunning; The stars look amazing.
Gameplay is okay, nothing special. A little more polish and it would be a favourite.

The game is fun. Each level takes only a couple of minutes, so if you need something to kill a short amount of time, go here. The puzzles require timing and planning ahead.

Levels require different objectives to earn three stars (least fuel used, least heat damage taken, timed, etc). You can slingshot around planets. You need to gather plasma to either bump up the star's energy, or lower it.

I'd recommend it, 8/10, would acquire again.

This puzzling mystery game is the creation of Jonathan Blow, developer of the award-winning game Braid.

Amazing beautiful space & star with nice sound.
But very difficult for non-hardcore gamers. I stucked at the 13th Cerberus == Maybe TBS-puzzle version would be more friendly.

= 8/10 =

Meh game, nothing stands out, just your typical gravity/physics based game (strikes me as a browser flash game honestly).
Levels got repetitive. Not saying it's bad, it's just not worth 10$, you can get better games for 10$.
Wait for a sale or price drop if you're thinking about buying this.

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! :)
