“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
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.

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

Great game

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.

Another instant classic from Quantum Sheep!

Docking Sequence is a high scoring game at it's core, with endless replay value. There are also 100 levels of space themed goodness to complete, chock-full of Easter eggs and nods to classic space movies.

The gameplay is simple to describe, but difficult to master. Navigate your space ship around asteroids, mines, and other obstacles by swiping a direction to try and dock your craft without crashing.

Rounding out the package are a ton of unlockables, including loads of achievements, color schemes, music, and ships.

Quantum Sheep is a one man "team" that continuously delivers outstanding iOS games. Docking Sequence is no exception.
