I don’t want to spoil you anything but ... :D

Make sure to pause the game if you feel like taking a longer break from managing your planet. Long story short, I happened to sleep for 13 hours one day and when I woke up I’ve found my primal first capital city under the water loosing approximately over 400 thousands colonists ;-;. Now I’m mourning them but hey, at least I definitely won’t make that mistake with the next planet again ^^ because basically you can terraform any planet in our solar system, their moons, dwarf planets, a completely random planet and more!
A steady English skills knowledge is required to fully enjoy it though. Respect to the developers for not forcing us, the colony leaders, to spend real money in order to progress in the game. It’s purely optional for lazy or impatient folks :3 also they have a splendid advert system. They don’t pop up suddenly against your will, it’s up to you if you want to watch them or not but doing so grants you some useful temporary buffs. You did a fine job guys, wish they were more customers’ comfort friendly developers like you ;). One more thing, hope it won’t be a big deal for you, namely it would be awesome to add some more random events. You know, they really add up to immersion while playing ^^. Install it and you won’t be disappointed I assure you. Peace

Take your time and don’t moan

It is a fantastic game about terraforming planets and moons, with minimalistic graphics (still cute) and maximalistic (sic!) scientific approach (the clue of the game).

Three levels of difficulty cater for various players, but the game becomes most interesting when challanges pile up and solutions need to be carefully sifted.

Don’t moan the game is too difficult, just learn to play it on easy mode. Later the normal mode becomes easy enough and the fun with biosphere begins!

Fantastic idea!

There are many idle games out there, but none of them allows me to see how does the surface of Mars change while terraforming.
Discovering the rules of the game is fun. I love the blue interface and music.
I would give it a five if it fixed a couple of small inconveniences.
With eight colonies or more it becomes a little bit laggy. When leaving colony view with ”x”, it lags so I tap it the second time which takes me to the planet screen. I need to wait for the entire animation which is annoying. Especially when it happens multiple times in a row. The animation is very cool but should be skippable.
When turning the planet - planet goes a different direction than its atmosphere.
From the overview, I would love to go to the colony where I want to enable/disable stuff.
When thinking about answering event, some other can occur, and I click the new one by mistake. Both new events and information that building/research finished should show up behind the current modal instead of in front o it.
Genesis points made me watch ads for the first time in a long time :D Good job!
