Review A Comet's Journey

Brandon Girod
8.0Excellent
Simplistic design, fun gameplay mechanics, soothing atmosphere
Limited resources, steep learning curve
When it comes to relaxing games, mobile platforms really aren’t the best place to find them. The typical games you’ll find on the Google Play Store ranges from ridiculously hard arcade games to ridiculously hard puzzle games to ridiculously grindy games. But every now and then you’ll stumble across something you can plop yourself on the couch and play without putting in too much effort. Comet - A Game of Orbits for Android is one of those games.
So, I will admit up front that the game isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. The objective of the game is pretty simple. You will launch a comet with the intention of placing it on an orbital path that will eventually lead it to colliding with an objective. Starting the game you will hit some pretty quick and simple objectives. The first level will have you hit one objective. The next level will make you hit one where you’ll have to change trajectory and speed of the comet to overcome a planet’s orbit. From there on out you’ll have to use these basic ideas to hit plenty of other objectives in increasingly more difficult scenarios.
The gameplay mechanics of the game are a little difficult to understand at first. They’re simple on paper, but figuring out exactly how they work is difficult in practice. Restarting a level is pretty quick but my biggest gripe stems from having a set amount of comets before you’re forced to buy more. Fortunately, you’ll be rewarded with more comets for completing levels.
I had a pretty good time playing Comet - A Game of Orbits. There is a bit of a learning curve jumping into the game at first, but after spending a bit of time with it there is just something calming about launching comets off into space.
