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.

Makes a fun space screensaver/10
Smash two rocks together to make a bigger rock.
Catch little rocks with your big rock to make a "planet"
Grow your planet into a star, and capture planets.
Unlock the black hole and let it roam rampant through the cosmos.
Not worth 9.99$, wait for a sale.

Solar 2 is one of those good little games that you'll barely get tired of. In this game you are a little asteroid at first and your end goal is to be a super massive black hole. The road there is rather interesting even if you don't do any missions (but I totally reccommend doing them because they are rather different from normal gameplay). You got to catch asteroids if you're a planet and planets if you're a star. There are multiple tiers of stars and you could even have 2 stars together! Just the idea of getting to play as 2 stars made me stare my mobile screen for quite a while (Yes, I also have it on mobile, but don't be afraid, because it's still as interesting on PC than it is on mobile) The game is that fun!

Lil' Sucky Gameplay to go with the review.

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.

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.
