“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the single hardest part of space travel is docking…”

4/5 from Touch Arcade: "gets at the heart of classic arcade games, where simple controls often managed to translate into complex behavior."
A 2D Pixel Art game by Quantum Sheep, inspired by the docking sequence from the classic ‘Elite’ as well as Kubrick’s seminal work, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Pilot your ship across 10 systems to dock in 100 stations and make your way home! Swipe to move, tap + hold to stop!
Stations rotate, making docking tricky. Then there’s those pesky space pirates to deal with. Asteroid fields. Mines. Wormholes.
But the trickiest part, by far, is docking! As you’ll soon discover!
Good luck, Pilot! :D
100 space stations across 10 different systems to dock with!
10 different spaceships to unlock and fiy!
Six chiptune music tracks provided by the awesome Classical 8bit http://classical8bit.tumblr.com
Challenging hazards such as asteroids, space pirates, mines, wormholes and even mysterious black monoliths!
Excess fuel unlocks different colour schemes!
Rescuing astronauts unlocks new music!
No IAP or Ads!
*warning* Though the game will work on an original iPad, expect better performance on more capable devices.
Quick update for compatibility

This Game is Meh . . .
This game feels clunky and rushed. I got it honestly thinking it was ALONE.. When I opened it I was surprised and thought I'd give it a shot anyway. At first it seemed ok. It had a decent skill level and appeared to have a certain replay-ability to it. After the first few levels though, you will realize the game has about three or four elements to it and becomes extremely repetitive. While I love supporting games with no IAP, this one has to get one star.
Pretty good game.
This game is worth the dollar spent on it. It was really enjoyable and fun to play. As stated on the disc. something something "iPhone 5" something something. I think it means that the controls are well published on IPhones and not pads or touches witch could be a problem to users with those devices. Like me. On a side note, the levels are too repetitive and I feel like I have been doing the same thing over and over. yes there are some mines and astroids but they really don't do much. and the astronauts floating in space don't feel satisfying to catch as the unlockables don't apply for them. Four stars is a proper rating
This is a great game to play when you have a few minutes. It brings out that "one more turn" mentality. I played through the first 20 levels when I first opened it up. Loved it.
As a side note I don't understand the other comments saying it's not worth the money... It should be free... Nothing to play... It makes me think we are playing different games.
I don't understand how people will drop $1 on a bag of m&ms and then complain about a .99 app not being as big as a ps4 game.
