Beautiful title screen and overall design, features 400 levels, quests offer additional objectives and more rewards
It’s really not every day that I claim to really enjoy playing what I would otherwise call a mundane puzzle or arcade game. Orbia for Android is a little bit of both that seems to have all the strengths of both genres of games without really having too many of the various weaknesses, though that’s not to say it doesn’t have its own set of problems.
I should start off by saying this is an unreleased game, so there are plenty of things that could change within the final release. We’re just taking a look at what the game is like now. The idea is that you’re going to shoot a fuzzy little creature from what looks to be one planet to another as it makes its way across a galaxy. Sounds like an easy task but there are other furry creatures orbiting each planet that will prevent you from making it simple.
The basis of the game is pretty simple and I actually found myself going through large swathes of levels before having to restart. Restarting simply means starting at the beginning of each level. Nothing seems to be randomized, so this is definitely a game that you can practice your way through, which is something I appreciate.
Overall, I think Orbia is coming along really well. The game is fun, it has one of the most beautiful title screens I’ve seen in a mobile game, there are over 400 levels and there are additional quests and objectives to tackle. Plus you get to easily customize your furry friend. It’s all pretty good.
