«While there are already a few iPhone games that share the same gameplay mechanics as Orbital, none of them look anywhere near as cool.»
- Eli Hodapp (toucharcade.com)

«BitForge has managed to combine the addictive gameplay of Peggle and the beauty of Geometry Wars, two digital forms of crack, into one easy to use package.»
- Chad George (thatvideogameblog.com)

«Orbital takes simple gameplay and dresses it up with a unique “gravity” feature and enhanced graphics. The game can be very frustrating at times, but that won’t keep you from coming back for another try.» 4/5

«Orbital has got fantastic graphics and unfussy features. Come to think of it, there are really no negative points about the game. Good going, Bitforge!» 5/5

You must shoot orbs into a grid with your cannon. The orb you fired will expand until it touches a wall or another orb. Each orb contains the number ‘3’, which decreases by one every time it is hit. After 3 hits they explode and you earn a point. The game could be endless… There is just one condition: a shot orb must not touch the death line above the cannon! If it does, the game is over.

A simple concept to rack your brains and nerves.

Too much

I loved this game. Been out for awhile. Re uploaded time and again. Very fun, simple, yet unique. The update was a pleasant surprise but....frankly, the game is too loud. One of my favorite aspects was the original sound effects. How things exploded but was still kind of muted so it wasn't overkill. I loved the tennis ball sounds when it bumped or .....basically I loved the original sound fx. I know u want spruce things up and making it more crisp is a nice touch but cannonball explosions etc is too much-too loud. At least put in an option to choose original game play.

...and so hard to put down!

That was my original short review from many years ago when you first brought out this app. However, I just launched it again today and found that I couldn’t do anything to get any sound working with it again. Checked app settings, mute hardware switch, phone volume, uninstalled and reinstalled (d’oh, lost game history now) and rebooting the phone. Still no sound. (iPhone XS, iOS 12.2)

A great game, but...

A great game all these years later, but I would still really like a mode that more closely mimics the speed and simplicity of the original version by Wouter Visser. I don't like having the results of your shot obscured by fireworks, and the increased speed of the game means aiming is more a matter of luck than it was with the slower version. Also, I'd really like to have an undo version in some non-competitive mode. All too often I spend a long time setting up a great board only to ruin it with one stupid shot. I'd like to have an undo so I can see how that board could play out.
