Game Review: Satalaunch V1.2 – Extras Coming Soon

March 22, 2011 No Comments


Satalaunch has to be one of the most creative games I have come across on Windows Phone 7. You take control of launching a satellite into space trying to get into a certain position. the catch is though that you have to try and collect stars on the way, avoid obstacles and that the gravitational pull from planets nearby will start to pull you in. Let me not kid around this game in the later stages has a big learning curve. But dont let that scare you. It is really refreshing to play such an ‘original’game (that I know of anyway) The game is completely free and it is pretty entertaining to play.

If I could ask anymore of this game it would be for a visual upgrade but the gameplay does keep you entertained. Especially since the gameplay and interface is buttery smooth. Controls are also very simple and intuitive to what your objectives are throughout the game. Numaris the creators of Satalaunch have also announced that there will be a new update soon that let you create your own levels which sounds pretty cool.

Rating: ★★★½☆
