Destroy the orbitals with 5 hits in order to

Orbital is now available for Android and it's a puzzle game where the only thing that matters is to score points by destroying orbs.

What do you need to do? Shoot the orbs onto a grid; the orb will grow until it hits an obstacle so you need to shoot the orb several times with the following orbs until it's destroyed, which will make you win a points. But there's one rule: the shot can't hit the death line above the cannon. At first it might seem a bit hard to understand but once you get that you need to hit the orb five times in order to destroy it and that it can't touch the bottom line, everything gets more clear.

The graphics are amazing and you can play by yourself or with a friend, which makes the game even more interesting and full of features. Besides, there are three game modes: Gravitu, Pure and Supernova, which adds more effects and makes it even more exciting to play.

bitforge Ltd. is the developer of Orbital FREE and the premium version which has other features like trying to beat online players. The only complaint we have is that every time you lose, you need to go back to the main menu in order to start again, which is kind of annoying.

GAMEPLAY
Shoot the colorful orbs onto a grid. As soon as the orb stops it will grow until it hits an obstacle (wall or another orb on the playing field). Now you have to shoot the orb several times with the following orbs until it’s destroyed. Every destroyed orb grants you one single point. You could collect endless points but there is one difficulty: The shot mustn’t hit the death line above the cannon. If it does, the game is over! How many points can you get?

    but since I switched to a Moto-X, it's been unplayable! It suffers from an inconsistent frame rate and isn't any fun anymore. Can anything please be done to optimize for this platform?

    For a very long time the support for the game on Android was neglected. However now it finally scales properly. The gameplay is still as addictive as ever :) Although simple at the core, the strategy, timing and skill potential to reach the highest score is incredible!!! I'm giving it 4 stars until it gets integration with Google Play Game Services and unlike a few months ago I can see that happen

    What a great game and pleased to find it on the Play Store. Had it for iPhone and just realized it was available for Android. Great to have it to play again. Brilliant fun.
