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.

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.

Solar Flux has got to be my new favourite puzzler. Each mission involves you attempting to save dying suns from oblivion either by feeding them plasma to either increase their power, or to reduce their power to prevent a supernova. Your ship has minimal thrusting power and so you must rely on the gravitationaly pull of nearby planets and asteroids to slingshot around the sector as you collect the plasma. In addition to this, whenever you shoot your collected plasma into the star, a solar flare is formed, which you can ride along to get an extra boost. The closest game I think Solar Flux reminds me of is Captain Ludwig for IOS. Both have a very similar physics system (look it up if you like, Ludwig's also a pretty good game). Apart from collecting plasma, you've also got to worry about your shield strength - which depletes whenever you are positioned in the sun's lght (you can hide in asteroid shadows to replenish this). There's also the fuel meter to keep an eye on, use all your fuel and the ship will be dead in the wat.. um space dust. This is wheere the game adds the replayability. Much like how angry birds challenges you to use the fewest birds, Solar Flux rewards players for minimal fuel consumption, indeed many missions are possible to complete without using a drop! The satisfaction from zero fuel usage you get is pretty good.

Overall, the game is a great little puzzler, easy to learn the basics, but still with plenty of challenge. Add to that the minimalistic visuals and great space ambience music (no, not simply silence), Firebrand have done an excellent job of porting an already good tablet game to the pc. Perhaps Eidos "The Fall" Montreal should take a leaf out of their book...

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! :)
