Review Orbital 1

Brandon Girod
9.1Excellent
Fresh style and graphics, fun and dynamic gameplay, smooth performance
Loot boxes take a long time to load, cluttered menus
If you’re looking to take an action-packed multiplayer game with you on the go, here it is. Orbital 1 for Android is a real-time strategy, multiplayer game that’s still in early access (though it definitely feels complete). It’s a game that pits you in a circular battle against a live opponent where the first to destroy the other’s command center is the winner.
This is a hard game to explain all the mechanics for in a short review, so I’m not going to go into overwhelming detail. You’ll build a deck of eight cards that each has rarity, stats and cost to play. You’ll then take your deck of cards to a match against an online opponent. The arena is a circle with a single pillar in there. You earn energy passively, and this energy is what you’ll use to summon units to try and destroy the enemy base before they destroy yours.
The game actually does a fairly good job with the tutorial. It teaches you the basics and then gets out of your way. Unfortunately, at this point in time, there isn’t much to do other than jump straight online and fight other opponents. Fortunately, you earn chests that contain new cards at a fairly good rate. The bad news is that while basic chests only take three seconds to open, the next tier takes three hours.
Orbital 1 may be in early access right now, but it feels like a pretty complete product. Cards felt pretty unique and cool, though there are a few places where I felt like I had to stumble through the menu to find what I was looking for. Looking forward to seeing more of what this game has to offer in the future.
