★ STORY

Earth is gone.
Only some survived.
Everyone who could, fled the planet and settled in the asteroid belt.
Years passed, factions formed, WAR ensued over scarce resources and precious knowledge.
You are a young engineer of the Node Collective, lost deep inside enemy territory. Your mothership was on a secret mission on the far side of the Triterian Empire, but you weren't senior enough to know its goal and purpose. So here you are - in a tiny, badly damaged shuttle - alone amidst the burning remains of what used to be the pride of your crew - with nothing but the cold voice of your computer to keep you company.

• Realistic Gravitation: Feel the gravitational pull, enter orbits, master landing on asteroids!
• Adventure: Lost deep inside hostile territory, in a tiny, badly damaged shuttle. A mobile-sized story to remember!

• iCloud keeps your game progress in sync between all your Macs and iOS devices


★ CONTROLS

Click and hold anywhere on the screen to fire your thrusters and get your ship to move.
Let go and you'll continue to drift forever on.
Your velocity is influenced by all gravitational forces in the area. Don't fight against gravity. Learn to use it to your advantage! Play with it! Dance!

Review by Dude Jackson

Great job! Great game! - This game is highly original, its using gravity physics and combines a cool sci-fi story with puzzle elements. The game is pretty short right now, only a few hours of gameplay but I love the direction it's going in and hope it keeps getting updated with new content. Support indie devs and pick up a copy of New Orbit! You've probably never played anythign like this.

Useless. - I bought this and tried to play it on my Macbook Pro running Mountain Lion (10,8. Totally jacked up my video. Useless and can't play it. I tried to get support, and that was a dead end. Beware.

Very cool! - So I have now bought this on both my Mac and on my iPad. Very original game and well done. Hope very much there is additional content released but enjoy it as it is as well. Worth the buy!

Review by tindrum

Very enjoyable thinking-man's game - You play with gravity and thrust like on the old Lunar Lander game, but you can travel all around. The story line is entertaining and even funny at times, but the physics of the game are what really makes it fun. The game is not long, to be sure. The developer hints at future content, and that would be great. The free-play area that you unlock at the end is very enjoyable, too, tough the company who made this game should definitely add more areas to explore for this part of the game. In all, a well-executed game that should be rewarded for creativity and fun. Perhaps the price is a bit high, but if the makers add more content, I believe my money is well-spent if it helps to finance those expansions. Also, if this worked with the Griffin iMate blue glowing knob (you who have these know to what I am referring), that would be awesome.

Review by DesertDrummer

Inventive, Simple, and Excellent - I really enjoyed this! A story-driven physics sim. Simple, elegant gameplay and clean, attractive graphics kept me playing the whole thing to the end in a single session. Looking forward to the upcoming episodes!

Great! What - Loved this game… but it only lasted two hours. When can I get some more missions and some GUNS or MISSILES or something?
