Satellite Shenanigans


Welcome to Satellite Shenanigans. Satellite Shenanigans is a gravity and physics based puzzle game set in outer space. Flick satellites across the cosmos while using your thrusters and the gravitational forces of large solar bodies to achieve orbits and score points. Leverage atmospheric drag to slow your craft down in order to settle into orbits. Use gravitational slingshots to build velocity and escape the solar system.
This challenging video game requires forethought, intelligence and skill to complete. Do you have what it takes to complete all of the levels and conquer the cosmos?

Nice concept, poorly executed. The basic idea of getting a satellite to move around the solar system, orbit planets, etc is fun, and quite challenging. However as far as games go, or even apps in general, there are quite a few annoyances. Firstly you have to download Adobe Air for it to even run, so it's obviously a flash port with no real phone integration. The worst part is that you can't exit the game. Even after you press the home button the game keeps running in the background and you have to bring up the list of running applications and use force quit to get it to close. The actual game is ok, but much of the "challenge" is left up to guess work where you have to aim carefully at a planet that is off the screen so your "aim" becomes more of a guestimate. There is a map of the solar system in one corner, but it's too small to be used to aim your satellite accurately. The whole games seems more like someone's abandoned university project. In the end I didn't really mind paying 99 cents for it, but there are far better games for the same price in the store. Really this should be a free app, possibly ad supported. I can only give it one star based on that it doesn't even close properly.
