  • Challenging... Apr 13, 2019

    By Chris(topher)
    ...and so hard to put down! That was my original short review from many years ago when you first brought out this app. However, I just launched it again today and found that I couldn’t do anything to get any sound working with it again. Checked app settings, mute hardware switch, phone volume, uninstalled and reinstalled (d’oh, lost game history now) and rebooting the phone. Still no sound. (iPhone XS, iOS 12.2)
  • A great game, but... Jun 6, 2015

    By dhamel
    A great game all these years later, but I would still really like a mode that more closely mimics the speed and simplicity of the original version by Wouter Visser. I don't like having the results of your shot obscured by fireworks, and the increased speed of the game means aiming is more a matter of luck than it was with the slower version. Also, I'd really like to have an undo version in some non-competitive mode. All too often I spend a long time setting up a great board only to ruin it with one stupid shot. I'd like to have an undo so I can see how that board could play out.
  • Best. Game. Ever. Oct 13, 2019

    By Dr. Mxyzptlk
    I’ve had Orbital since my first iPhone (4s) and I LOVE it. I only play Gravity mode, which is the perfect game for me. I’d even say it’s the perfect simple iPhone game. What I love: - it’s super simple and extremely well done - it’s pretty/fun to look at - it’s challenging - I haven’t beaten my own high score in years - restarting after a loss is FAST, painless - it’s ‘Bizarro Tetris’! > ‘blocks’ are circles > they go up, not down > defaults to resting; player controls pace of game > targeting is proactive not reactive > and the consequences get less predictable and more stimulating as the field fills in whereas Tetris is simply a relentless closing off of options I find it the perfect mindless game for when I’m listening to an audiobook or podcast or just feeling fidgety.
  • Still amazing! Sep 25, 2020

    By Jason.Lambert
    I bought this game over a decade ago for $4.99 or maybe a little bit more or less. It is still on my phone all these years later and is still one of my favorite casual games. It completely boggles my mind that it is still getting updates to keep it running on the latest iOS! What a fantastic commitment from the developers!
  • Please make a sequel! Aug 27, 2020

    By App_Addict101
    I absolutely love this game! I’ve had it on my phone for many years. I would love to see an Orbital 2 that has some new game modes and is modified to fit the IPhone X screen! Pleaseeee make another Orbital!🙏🤞 Dear devs..this is still one of my favorite games. Been playing since the release and it’s now August 2020. Pleassseee make a sequel with new modes, power ups full screen and new crisp graphics 🙏🏼
  • Fixed bug, back to 5 stars! May 30, 2015

    By DreamLollipop
    I love this game and play it all the time. With the fix to ensure scores do not reset when you pause, it's back to the top of the list. Bitforge deserves huge kudos for taking the feedback and quickly addressing the issues identified by their customers. Will go out of my way to check out other titles by these folks. Thank you!
  • Been around for awhile, but still infinitely playable Apr 21, 2016

    By mrkane82
    I've been playing this game frequently since 2009 and I love it just as much today as the day I first bought it. No two games are the same. This is a fantastic one-finger gem for when you have a spare minute or two... or 200 if you just can't put it down!
  • All time favorite May 31, 2021

    By BobMNH
    I have had this game for many years. I come back to it over and over. Great when I only have 15 minutes or so when waiting. Just a great game. My only complaint - even with sound set to Off the intro sound plays when starting up. It would be great to get that fixed.
  • Give me original sound fx Dec 15, 2020

    By LillyLillyLongLillyLegs
    Love love love this game and have for years. One of my exes introduced me to it and I have since introduced it to all my exes and my now husband (not ex). Everyone loves/loved it. I just wish there was an original sound fx mode. The opening music was so peaceful! At least they kept the robot voice!
  • Great Game! Jun 16, 2020

    By Keithman1965
    This game is FUN! Three different games in one. Awesome colorful graphics and I really like one of the two tunes in the game. The only drawback is you can’t select one tune over the other to always play. This game is addicting!

  • Please update! Sep 21, 2019

    I’ve enjoyed this classic game for years, through many iOS updates. But, sadly, iOS 13 seems to have broken it. Please, give us fans an update! Thanks in advance...

  • Classic but.. Jun 2, 2021

    By RM Imagery
    Glad the game was updated to play on newer phones but the physics are different and easier to die. Also - what happened to the leaderboards?! Disappointed.
  • The sound? Dec 24, 2016

    By hongxu2
    I appreciate the excellent update for iPad. However, I still miss the background music in old version. Could designer keep the original sound?
  • Great but aggravating Aug 2, 2018

    By aajax
    Fun and challenging game. I play on an iPod Touch and if there is no connection to the server and I exit the game, it forgets my high scores. I have lost several Top 5 scores this way. Argh. Fix the scoreboard server already!
