If you had the power, how would you create the solar system? What would be the size of each planet or star? And how would you place them in orbit? If you are interested in Astronomy and looking for a powerful yet easy to use 3 dimensional space sand box app to create and simulate a whole new galaxy with realistic physics rules, then you’ve come to the right place. Orbit Sandbox Universe, the 3D sand box game, provides you the ultimate power to explore the infinite space and simulate your own space full of different planets, gas giants, and stars.

In this gravity simulator app, you get to customize literally any aspect of these particles to simulate and design your very own solar system in this sand box. Once you are satisfied with your customized solar system (or any other combination of particles, planets, and stars), you get to easily add it to your collection, take a screenshot and share it with the world.
The game comes with a clean and neat design and the 3D simulation is so smooth that you won’t feel any difficulties or lags when bombarding your planets, or applying any condition to them. And make sure not to take the realistic gravity lensing effect as granted when looking at a black hole. It’s just fascinating.

Is this Orbit Sandbox Easy to Use?
Is this 3D galaxy sand box with realistic physics simulation powerful enough to create and design different planets, gas giants and stars? The answer is a BIG yes! But are the simulation tools easy to use? The answer is even a BIGGER yes! The user interface is so friendly, that you’ll get used to it after going through the step-by-step tutorial and trying available tools for a few times. After that, you just need to use your imagination and be creative to form some unique pocket galaxies with gravity simulator based on physics rules. If you are going to redesign our lovely solar system in our galaxy, you’ll have access to all the planets (mars, moon, earth, mercury etc …) and you have the power to unlock new worlds by meeting the right conditions, colliding with the right objects, and altering mass and sea level while keeping the temperature stable. To smash stuff together and create new planets, make sure to crash the right ones together.
Tip: To raise the sea level, hit a planet with ice meteors, and use rock meteors to lower the sea level.
Orbit Sandbox Main Features at a Glance:
• Wonderful 3D graphics with smooth space simulation
• Super user-friendly interface with easy to learn gameplay
• Step-by-step and detailed tutorial
• Huge variety of particles, procedural planets, gas giants and stars
• Ultimate customization options for your creations
• Gravity simulator with realistic physics rules
• Create Solar System with the tiniest details
• Take screenshots of your universe and share it with family and friends
• Unlock new achievements
• Interactive journal to track your creations
• Save and Load simulated creations
So, Orbit Sandbox Universe offers everything you should expect from such 3D gravity and universe sandbox games and it even sets the bar to a higher level by offering smooth particle simulator, realistic physics rules, user-friendly interface, a wide range of different particles, planets and stars, and a lot more.
No matter you are serious in Astronomy stuff or you just want to have fun creating some beautiful infinite universes, we’ve got you covered. You just need to take your time, select from wide range of stunning particles, stars, and planets, specify their positions and how they should rotate, and last but not the least decide which planets should collide to destroy and create new worlds.

Basically a mobile Universe Sandbox!

This game is truly amazing and well worth the money! However, there are a few suggestions I have. For one, can we eventually be able to see from the surface of a planet or moon? I know that it would be very hard from a programming standpoint, but it would make the game really popular. Secondly, please can there be a orbiting option? This would basically be a option, along with launching stellar objects, that would basically show a circle around the object, that circle would be the orbit. You would be able to adjust the distance your planet or moon orbited at. I just think it would make putting planets or moons into orbit so much easier. Lastly, please add different black hole sizes. For example, there would be small black holes, medium black holes, large black holes, super massive black holes, and ultra massive black holes. I think having different black hole sizes would be, for one, pretty cool. And two, it would make the game more realistic. And I think that the different sizes of black holes should have more or less pull depending on there size. All of these would make the game even more spectacular then it already is. I recommend this game to people who want a good mobile game for once.

My opinion, best game I played.

This is exactly what I was looking for from a mobile app, it does need some improvements, unfortunately I can't play long before it gets buggy or crashes.. Main issues are placing a wormhole, satellite or a black hole, causes the game to become unresponsive. Or after so many collisions, no matter what the settings are set to try and lower like graphics, Ect... The planets will suddenly eradicate all life on every planet, no matter the distance from the star even without a star, all turn into a lava planet within seconds
of spawning one. Also noticed that restarting a game for whatever reason, sometimes doesn’t work and either planets are still there, without names. I really want to see this app be updated soon so I can play the game I PAID for.
but I look forward to seeing some improvements. Otherwise it's a simple game, crashing planets, play with gravity, great graphics, the collision of impacts it's well worth it. I really enjoy this game, every game has its cons and pros, once more updates release, it'll be the best!

So much fun!

Update to 4 stars due to some bugs:

After playing for a few hours I have run into a few glitches and found a few features that need a change. Like others have said sometimes objects don’t move and have no pull even though it’s set to unlock. The scale of the black holes is all over the place. They were once big and now they are really small. At first I thought I forgot to slide the mass scale but it was all the way up. I wish the planet count wouldn’t reset to zero when placing a solar system. I wish you could zoom out more. You’re kinda limited to seeing half a solar system at most. Would be cool if you could zoom out to a level where you can see most of the objects on the board. Also, sometimes the texture reverts back to NES days where the lines are jagged and sharp instead of smooth and detailed. Closing out the app completely will fix this.

Where are the supernovas? Quasars? Neutron Stars? And it would be cool if the planets that develop life would colonize other worlds and try to defend against all the bad things I do to their planet like send asteroids to wipe them out. This game has so much potential and I hope the devs use their imagination to make this a truly out of this world experience.

This game is a ton of fun. A truly great physics engine. I highly recommend it.
