About

Embark on a journey through the depths of space, and uncover an ancient legend.

In Orbit, you play a small comet, hurtling between planets to a backdrop of procedurally generated nebulae and star clusters. A realistic gravity system is at the core, allowing players to have as much, or as little input as desired, watching while their comet flies into unpredictable new orbit patterns.

Key Features:

• Explore the cosmos as a comet, orbiting planets with a realistic gravity system.
• Blast through portals and warps in space and time.
• Unlock new skins and skills to make your comet stronger and faster.
• Explore 5 pockets of space spread over 40 levels.
• Unearth an ancient tale by collecting strange objects known as Matter.
• Marvel at procedurally generated nebulae and star clusters.
• Explore at your leisure in the relaxing Drift mode.

Orbit HD reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Italian
If you are looking for a game to relax but still know how to offer a good degree of challenge this is the title for you! Not impossible, but far from simple to master to the end. For two euros is a bargain!

Definitely not what you've been looking for. Unfortunately, a False Purchase. It is about blind (due to the Non-display of the Trajectory) finding out a Path between Planets with an Asteroid which loses mass if you control too much. Frustrating.

Orbit HD Like me fell the Skichka on this game, and I decided to buy it. And for good reason, the cards are very expensive. The Game is not very intricate, a typical arcade. We manage a meteor that should make circles around the planet until it burns down. In General, he himself flies out of the force of gravity, but still he can fly. Control is very simple-pressed the mouse that place where you want to fly and it will change its course. The Whole point is that when you turn a meteorite burns down a little. And at the levels you need to fly as long as possible and get the maximum number of points. Well, the idea is good and done decently. 9 out of 10

What is "ORbit HD"!? Honest Answer, I don't really know. Since I had bought it in a Bundle, I wanted to give the little Game a chance as well. Ergo installs and started. The Approach to "Orbit HD" that you have to bring a Comet "with a realistic Gravitational System" xD, into its Orbit is not bad as far as that. It is as clear to everyone should be a completely exaggerated Statement. If you really want to be a "Game" in the Direction, I recommend "Universe Sandbox." That then is a Simulation that is second to none and costs about €7 more. But by far, the better Output represents even for kids addressed below. The Look is accordingly for a €3 Title and you can't expect much. The Sound ... I will come to that later. Now just the big BUT is coming from me ... For example, what the calculated Level points calculate does not fully open up to me. The Level Set-up Would be understandable, what-how-where, also very good. There would also be enough Skins, skills, Etc. to play freely. Whoever manages this deserves my Respect! "Orbit HD" conveys a very entertaining Gameplay, which really lasts very short ... There is no more. Not even the extra Soundtrack and here I get to the Sound, which is offered in Steam for a proud €3, his Money is not worth it. If you might want to buy the Game, you should think about the Edition very carefully. As a Pastime for smaller Children. I will get the Purchase, otherwise I will advise so far from the Purchase!!
