About This Game

In most games you see stars in the background, you shoot asteroids or you live on planets. But in Solar 2 you ARE these objects! Enter a universe where you must prove yourself to the resident god-like figure by doing its many bizarre and varied tasks. Or just ignore it and see how big you can grow!

Solar 2 is an open-world, sandbox game set in an infinite abstract universe. Play constructively: grow your system, nurture life on your planets and attack enemy life in huge space battles. Play destructively: crash into other objects and cause chaos, use your orbiting objects like wrecking balls, steal planets from other systems.

Key features:

  • Dynamic abstract sandbox universe. Changes and evolves as you do.
  • Non-linear missions and open-world gameplay.
  • No boundaries. Drift forever in ambient space bliss.
  • Full of weird eccentric humor and stuff.
  • Extensive custom sound track.

I sexually Identify as a Neutron Star. Ever since I was an asteroid I dreamed of soaring the cosmos dropping hot sticky black holes on disgusting solar systems. People say to me that a person being a neutron star is Impossible and I’m f.cking r.tarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install dark matter, dead star dust and other galactic remains on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Nebula” and respect my right to kill from vortex distance and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a starophobe and need to check your interstellar privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

Solar 2; a planet-smashing, time-eating, incremental masterpiece. There are not many words I can use to describe this game - If you are on the cusp of buying or not, I recommend buying this game.

Definately one of my favorite casual games. Start out as a little asteroid and build up to be a black hole and consume all! Plus there are fun little quests along the way. You can definitely spend alot of time messing around with this game and it is also a game I like to come back to now and then.

good lil game, some say it is a great time killer. i would say that it has the ability to alter time.although if you have a proclivity toward carpal tunnel (wear a brace for this one).
other wise a fun game that keeps you wanting to open up more.



i can see how it could get a little grindy after a while....

I really enjoyed this game! Basically you destroy other planets and such to grow your mass and conquer the universe. Everything is perfect, except one thing.... The replay value, the whole game takes about an hour to beat, and the best part is the longest part. It doesn't seem like much fun to replay, even with the missions. I feel like multiplayer with black holes removed would be awesome. The tutorial is a little off, and after you win, there is a typo, when it says " You aren't done yet..." Overall, amazing.
