Про цю гру

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.

Small fun game to play when you are short on time, although it does indeed get a bit repetetive it is still pretty fun to just mess around and do things your own way. You can also create your own solar system with evolved, shielded planets and start wars with other solar systems which can be pretty fun in my opinion. There are missions for every stage that extend the game as well which are optional or you can just eat the world and throw up rinse and repeat. I like the idea of that how you grow eat everything and you are back where you started, puts a possible path of reality into view of what could happen to our universe.

I love this game, is my favourite casual game to play when feeling a bit off. Taking my small asteroid and building it up to a super black hole that crashes the entire universe never fails to make me happy.
10 out of 10 would crash the universe again.

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.

About the most fun you can have with a rock. Great writing and some great tricks to be performed. Been years since I played this, maybe I should go back?

Awesome little "space" simulator. The ability to form your own solar system, then just slam into another was quite enjoyable and interesting to see the affects. Definitely a fun little game.

The joy of this game is its sheer simplicity. In all my hours of playing I've only ever bothered to grow my planetoid into a black hole. One has the option of completeing missions, but, why bother when complete intergalactic annihilation is so close at hand?

There are many absorption games, including free flash ones you can on your browser. Solar 2 stands out because instead of playing a creature trying to eat other creatures, you start out playing as an asteroid and trying to collect enough rocks to become a planet, then a star, and eventually a black hole. There is a story with missions to complete, some challenges, and achievements that will extend game play. On the other hand, you can clear the story mode in only a few hours. I got my $10 worth, but others might want to wait for the game to go on sale to buy it.

I will say that I didn't play a lot of the story in this game, and mostly did sandbox play. It's kind of fun for a little bit, but there's really not much here, and the story I did play I didn't find terribly interesting or fun, so it didn't really compel me to explore further. The music, however, is really good, reminding me a lot of Vangelis' work in Cosmos and Blade Runner.

I got it on a Steam sale for $2.49, which I feel isn't a bad deal, but if I'd paid full price ($10 at this writing), I probably would have felt a little cheated. In its place, I would recommend Eufloria or Osmos over this game.

Fun little game with fun gravity or rather lack there of. Soundtrack is exquisite. Not worth the 10$, but anything under 5$ should be fine. I picked it up for 2.50$ and it was worth it for the music alone. 10/10 would evolve into a black hole and devour all the bullies that fought you on your way again.

I never really wondered how it feels to be a star orbited by half a dozen planets, all inhabited and at war with another solar system. But it's still nice to know.

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 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.

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.

Somebody saw some flash-games where you could eat smaller planets and become bigger planet and repeat this. This guy made money with that idea. The guy who made that flash game in early 2000's still lives in his mothers basement.

Also this game tries to make you think it has plot to this scenario. No it doesn't. You will still buy it because you liked that flash game you played back in the early 2000's? I knew it.

It's ok..ish? 7/10

Solar 2 is one of Steam's best-kept secrets. It's equal parts space physics simulator and arcade game.

I find it very relaxing and entertaining to zip around space, gobbling up asteroids into a giant star-katamari and evolving my planets.

It's not a perfect game. I wish that there was a better way to battle star-vs-star with the AI. The best strategy I've found for stealing planets is to knock them out of orbit with a shielded planet, then chase them down. This works, but it's very damaging to your suns and planets, and tends not to be worth the effort. The best strategy for growth is roaming about the galaxy looking for free planets and asteroids to grow your system.

No matter. Solar 2 is not really designed for long-term play. I find it works best to pop in for a while and just knock around a bit. See if you have the patience to develop an 8-star system, for instance.

The missions offer a nice break to the gameplay, but some are easy and some are very frustrating. It's a mixed bag.

A Multiplayer mode would have been welcome, too. Still, I find little to complain about in Solar 2. It's not perfect, but it is a light and fun sandbox game, which lets you decide how you want to have fun. Try the Demo.

You start out as an asteroid and build up mass until you are a black hole. If that doesn't sound like the tightest ♥♥♥♥ there is, then I don't know what to tell you. But seriously, this game has a surprisingly extensive amount of content, beautiful graphics, and excellent gameplay. I highly recommend it.

Have you always wanted to be a celestial object? In this interesting take on the "grow bigger" genre you finally can. You begin as a smallest of asteroids and have to hit other asteroids to grow in mass and avoid marauding space ships and anything too much larger in the process. You move with arrows or ASDW (I used keyboard) in a 2D universe, while everything else is dictated by gravity.

At some point you will grow into a planet. This changes mechanics: no longer will you try to hit stuff but instead try to make asteroids orbit your piece of rock, after which you can absorb them. Mechanics are different for each phase: asteroid, planet, star and black hole. Planet phase is separated into regular and life planets (all with shields, planetary cannons and spaceships).

Orbiting is pseudophysical: that is, not real physics at all. The objects will actually be attached to the orbiting system. You should know that this is not a real physics simulator, so this is totally fine. This makes for some truly bizarre possibilities: you can form multi-star ring systems with ridiculous numbers of stars and yet have aggressively orientated fully evolved killer planets orbiting the system.

Story and achievements provide some 10-20 hours of playtime within three missions and 2-3 challenge mini games for each phase and finally a boss fight. They often make clever use of the game's physics and mechanics. You can also stop anytime you want and the cloud will make sure you can continue from where you left, or if you'd like to, from somewhere entirely different. Playing is very enjoyable and the only time I remember it getting tedious was when I grinded my way to 40 stars supersystem. Fortunately, you can save your favourite configurations (like that one with super-multistar megasystem) to be loaded any number of times again (handy for achievements) and play with physics options if regular pseudophysics gets boring.

Once you're done with the universe simply grow your planet-eating super-heavy neutron star into an all-devouring black hole and consume the world in a Big Crunch. A fitting end to a crazy little game.

The screenshots really do not do this game justice. The formula isn't new in itself (if you've played the first evolution level of Spore, Osmos or Flash-game 'flOw', it's basically that idea (bigger consumes smaller), modelled on orbital rotation and gravity.

You start life as a small bit of rock - a tiny asteroid. You must smash into other rocks in order to grow. Grow enough and you will become a barren, rocky planet. Gather more rocks into your orbit and absorb them for your planet to grow. When it's large enough, your planet can sustain life (which has benefits and shortcomings - I won't say what as it's a bit of a spoiler). Once your planet is HUGE, it can become a minor star and draw other planets into its orbit. Be the biggest solar system. Become a binary star system. Become a black hole! Survive as other systems try to attack your marvellous achievement and turn you back into an empty, tiny planet! Best of all, you keep that planet or system. When you reload, you carry on where you left off.

Besides making your own star system, there are objectives to carry out if you wish. They're fun and challenging, but to be honest I just enjoy making the biggest star system. The controls are excellent for both keyboard (sorry - no mouse) and gamepad. A simple concept really nicely executed. Overall, this is a superb little game and I highly recommend it as one of those time-filling diversions when you don't want to dive into your huge AAA title.

Nice little game to play if you've got nothing else or you wanna play on your laptop during a long, boring trip.

Commendable for the sheer scale of events. You wanna be a black hole? Sure, why not, be a badass black hole. The badassest of them all. Eat asteroids, eat planets, eat stars, eat other black holes, and then eat the whole mother♥♥♥♥ing Universe, nothing's there to stop you except the inevitability of you collapsing under your own gravity. Dayum, space, you scary.

Or... OR... you could actually, you know, do story missions and become God. But they're hard.

You're in space. You're a rock in space. Bump into more rocks to become bigger rock, become a rock with little people on it, avoid letting rocks pelt your planet and avoid bringing the race to extintion long enough for your little planet to develope self defence, become bigger, explode into a star killing an entire life system on your planet and then become a solar system. In space. With more planets with more self defence. Grow your star untill it evolves, explodes, and devours space. Space.

A nice indie game, good for lectures or light gaming. First walkthrough is fun, but after you try each game mode or phase once, little replay value. I certainly don't regret buying, had a good time for its price, but I doubt I'd play it again in a long time.

I just love it!
You can go "full speed" and make a black hole and kill all the universe or make a "perfect" solar system and play with it for hours!
The atmosphere and music is awesome :D

Guys, just buy it!

10/10 relaxing gameplay

Possibly the smallest game I own, but it packs a bigger punch than that.

Solar 2's main strength is that you can play at your own pace, with your own goals, and that leads to a good few hours that you can spend just bumbling around in space and figuring out what you fancy doing. Going from a tiny asteroid to a black hole? Staying as a solo planet and building up a small armada of ships? Just flying around like a lunatic smashing into stuff and dying repeatedly? All viable playstyles.

If you want more structure, the story and challenge missions offer a good balance between fun and difficulty, and add considerable longevity to the game. The general idea is to work your way up the planetary body hierarchy - from diminutive asteroid through to planets, stars, star systems and eventually nature's biggest vaccuum cleaner. There are individual missions for each stage of being, some of them simple, others very difficult. I have yet to witness another game that lets you play as the stage itself at a rock concert.

For a little indie title, there's a surprising amount to do, and while it could perhaps get a little samey after beating everything the game has to offer, there are physics options that you can use to craft a more creative playing experience - like mass space dogfights between hundreds of ships, for instance.

Or, you could just let the cool ambience of the game float you away on a paradoxical vaccuum breeze...
