This is an 'XL' version of my mobile game 'orbt'. I have added/changed a variety of things to make it more suitable for the Steam platform. I have been learning to make games in my free time and love making small-yet-solid arcade games with simple mechanics. Please expect 'Orbt XL' to be a small, re-playable, arcade score-chaser game where the only basic goals are to constantly beat your previous score and unlock a variety of cosmetic skins. I greatly appreciate feedback and will do my best to ensure support for my games. Please contact me through Twitter, My Website, or the forums if you encounter something wrong with the game, something misleading on the store page, or you just want to say hello.

Thank you for taking a moment to read this; I really hope you enjoy playing my game.

Stay in orbit while avoiding obstacles or being sucked into a black hole. Survive as long as you can while dodging and weaving between the various obstacles, the closer you orbit to the center; the faster you achieve points. The longer you last, the harder it gets. Good Luck and have fun playing with gravity!

Simply pressing the orbt button allows your planet to move away from the black hole, not pressing the button forces your planet to be sucked towards the black hole.

orbt xl reviews and comments

For 39ct Absolutely awesome game! Fun for in between zb. When waiting for a Download, Controller compatible works even without any Problems and the "one More round" Addiction Factor is more than given! Absolute Buy recommendation.

You won't understand it at first, but you'll like it. Then you realize that you can unlock other "planets." You start to love it-a few More Turns! Then at some point you will go to sleep and dream about it.

Great little Game for In Between. It's simple, fun and it's "addictive" because you want to try to beat your high score. Great as such a simple Game Allows for so much Fun. You can invest the £0.99s with a clear Conscience.

What about this game? Just that it is very addictive! He totally deserves the description given to him, I quote, "Orbt XL is a score game of the type" still a small part "intense and addictive." It's just my feeling. A good and simple game with good potential!

Ores XL is a Cool Game to briefly pass the Time while waiting for Friends or just Bored, but for a long Time it is quite monotonous and Boring. As long as the Game is in the Sale it is worth spending the 50ct but the Standard price For the Fun is significantly too high.

magnificent! I knew this game thanks to steam curators, I saw it in my recommendations, it caught my attention and I was not mistaken. Certainly, the PC version is not a version to which one can play for hours, however the mobile version is really very interesting to pass the time in the waiting rooms. The + of the graphics minimalist and sober, the colors are very well chosen, the game is beautiful. Very simple controls. A game that is easily hung, we always want to succeed in increasing our best score. The-the only thing I find to say is that the planets designs are, I find, too simple to unlock. I'd give a nice 18/20:)

A small game with simple but addictive gameplay. The goal? You play a planet in orbit around a black hole that must avoid the other planets sucked by the black hole while also avoiding this doom:) There are several types of planets to avoid, each having its speed, size, particularity. The peculiarity of the game is that the closer you are to the black hole, the more points you earn, but it is also more difficult. It takes 30 minutes to go around all this and not even an hour to make all the successes (which mostly consist of accumulating points to buy new skins for your planet). The game does not break bricks but it is addictive and requires a certain mastery, perfect to make an intermission between two parties or if there is nothing better to do:) Have you enjoyed this evaluation? Come and see the others!
