  • Conclusion: Outside of the campaign, there’s also a sandbox mode, which allows for any sort of dungeon – within preset conditions. But it lacks some of the humor and the story-based objectives that add so much to the campaign, and it becomes mundane quickly.

  • Summary: Art Style: Orbient's bizarre take on Newtonian physics would probably make scientists uncomfortable, but it also makes for a unique puzzle game. In this single-player journey through 50 galactic levels, you manipulate gravity to maneuver a planetoid around a small two-dimensional cross section of...

  • Conclusion: Hyfsat kort, visserligen, men alltid utmanande och mervärde finner man i de svårare nivåerna man låser upp. På varje nivå går det dessutom att sätta en måne i omlopp runt ens planet, men vad som händer om man samlar på sig spelet samtliga månar är en fråga som ännu får stå obesvarad.
  • Pros: Utmanande.
  • Cons: Oattraktivt.

  • Conclusion: Nett, mehr nicht! Das erfrischende Spielprinzip motiviert eine gewisse Zeit und macht durchaus Spaß, bietet aber auf Dauer wenig Abwechslung und richtet sich eher an Gelegenheitsspieler.
