"Great-feeling level-based physics action puzzler. What it lacks in personality, it makes up for in slick polish."

Well designed "gravity-type" game. The basic rule is to grab all the plasma and provide it to the sun(s) - at the same time you'll need to watch out on your fuel and armour level.

There are 4 different universes, each of them has around 15 levels.

Master your skills level by level and compare your time results with other people and with your friends.

Perfect for few hours of pure entertainment. Not sure if these "few hours" are worth $10 though.
If you will find it on 50% sale then it'll be definitely worth it!

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.

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 =

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! :)
