  • Summary: Quite nice game. Very short and after a while there isn't much to do but you can kill time with this one amazingly easy. Just fly around as hunk of rock. There is always room for getting achievements done too if you are that type of the person. Just don't expect any revolution.

  • Summary: Alot more work and ideas would have to be put in this game to make it something more than just a novelty. Its maybe fun for first few minutes but you will get bored sooner than you expect.

  • Summary: Decent game but it's not entirely apparent what they want you to do. Sure you float around and that's pretty neat but all the missions in the game are very vague with how to go complete them. Floating around is fun for awhile but it gets boring pretty quickly. Of course, if you bought it anytime recently, you only paid 2-3 dollars for it. I'd say that the very quick thrill is worth that amount but it's certainly not worth much more than that.

  • Summary: The concept seems fine - you start as a rock, grow and become a planet, later star. Finally you "own" other planets and develop a star system etc. Throw in an atmospheric music and some task or missions to perform in-game... and it should work. Sadly, it's not. I have to admit, this game is original, but in the other hand it's also pretty boring.

  • Summary: As others have mentioned, this is a VERY short game with very little variation. Is it fun? Yes, for a while. After that, you feel that you've done it all before. There are different "missions" that you can try to accomplish, but they're your basic Fedex variety quest. After a couple of these, you just want to tell god to buzz off and let you run this universe as you please. Which, of course, you can't because by the time you have a bit of power, the game is over.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It's a quite unique game, it's a sandbox game with a few "quest" lines, the exciting thing about it is what you play as, an example of gameplay would go like this, "Uh im a rock. what can i do? *Fly around a little smash into other rock*, WOW did i just get bigger? *Smash all the rocks!!!!!* now im a planet, rocks hurt me.

  • Summary: Extremely short, extremely shallow. Fun for 10 minutes, but then you start to feel like they forgot to put in a lot more that could have, like much more stages of planet evolution before advancing. Because of these problems this is hardly even a game.

  • Summary: This is a definite 9/10 it is entirely unique and deserves and is one of the best indie game innovations the game has great missions but it is very fun to fly around as a star collecting planets then attacking other life systems with those planets forces

  • Summary: A beautiful game, with a very nice soundtrack. Though it may become boring after a while, it is a great time waster which you can pick up at any moment.
