A refreshing combination of thumb and mental acuity!
New and original game concept, engaging levels, simple and clean design. If you're looking for a breath of fresh air in the iTunes app store, you've found it here. The game does a great job of teaching and reinforcing key ideas on how to control your ship best. Before you know it you're stringing together orbits and bumpers like a pro. Don't be fooled though, this game challenges your critical thinking and creativity. Coming up with your own techniques to make it to the goal empowers the gamer and removes the lid of linearity that seems to plague so many games.
I'm not sure what the previous reviewer meant by imperfect controls... I haven't had any troubles. Like the concept of the game, the controls are new and take some getting used to. However, the control scheme is so intuitive that it comes naturally.
Overall, a great game design and implementation!
