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

Not a bot real person ,


I love this game , like the parts when it tells you how the planet is developing . But I have an idea,when it says there venturing into space,if you make a new star next to the developing star with other inhabitants planets, are you able to add like the developing planet trying to go to the other star and go into some of the other planets or maybe study the planets and the star

And it would also be nice if you can like make a rocket coming out the planet and you can see we’re the rocket is going that would be cool and it would be amazing if you added that some of the planets are shooting people and rockets into space to venture to some of the other planets in the star that would be amazing thank you and hopefully you can do this

I’m very sorry Af you can understand what I’m saying but hopefully you can. I SUGGEST THIS GAME T9 EVERYONE WHO LOVES SPACE LIKE ME!!!!!!!! C:

Good game, but could use some fixes

Ok so here’s some info that the other reviews don’t usually have (because they are at least a year old most of them!) so let’s start with planet orbits. It can be frustrating but if you put drag your finger to what you want it to orbit it will go in a perfect circle (or near it if there are other stuff) unless your orbiting a planet in which there’s a chance of it failing. Everything but asteroids counts as a “planet” including black holes and if you tap something and then tap what pops up when you do you can find how to change what it is doing and also destroy it. My game also freezes at times in some areas so I can mostly just watch sadly and can you increase the starting max amount of planets to 5 and make so you only watch ads for extra planets otherwise it will stay at 3 stars. Also you should have lines between where your planets can support life and planets should be able to get life again as well for less confusion and add a tutorial. Otherwise it is a good game and there’s some things you should add like life on planets being able to explore space and fight other space explorers or make peace with them and so on.

Fun and informative

The thing that impressed me is that I have a game that I can hold in my hand with a solar system that operates on the laws of gravity. Suns and planets in the palm of my hand. It makes you think when you consider that our universe operates on laws that had to be programmed just like these in the game. It makes me realize that when the Bible says God spoke and there was light, the stars, the sun, moon and earth- it is analogous to what I am doing here. How big is the universe? Well, it fits in the palm of God’s hand.

It’s hard getting a planet to orbit the sun and be stable. And with every additional planet it gets more complicated. Apparently God is a genius.
