IMPORTANT! 6th Planet does NOT run on iPad 1st gen iPhone, iPhone 3GS and iPod 2G!

6th Planet tells the story of a near future, where the planet Saturn suddenly changes into a possible place for humans to live. To find out what is going on, a monkey is sent into space. This is the beginning of a series of events that will determine mankind’s future.

The goal of the game is to guide your space pod to the landing site on the other side of the level. With only two buttons to work with, it is a simple concept that’s easy to pick up, but hard to master. The Story Mode contains 50 levels, divided across 7 worlds. If you succeed in finishing this mode, you unlock the Master levels, which is a collection of very challenging levels for you to try out.

The comic story, in between the levels, consists of a total of 188 screens, which is two comic books worth of images. The story is co-written and drawn by the studio that’s responsible for the Oscar nominated animation films The Triplets of Belleville and The Secret of Kells. Screens are colored by Raymund Lee, famous for his work on Marvel’s Wolverine series.

Great soundtrack, BUT

:
I want to say that this game is great. The developers put a lot of thought and time into it. But it was not what I was expecting at all. The gameplay is very slowwwww. If you want something VERY relaxed and mellow with a great soundtrack and comic book type feel, then by all means, get it. Otherwise just know that you're all you do is guide a spaceship through the game very, very, very, very slowly. Too boring for me personally. It's simply not what I was hoping for.

4/5 stars

Immersive 2001-like Experience

:
I was asked by the developers to have a look at their game, and I am glad I did. What I like about this game is that it's got a real comic book story going in the background, along with the Lunar Lander/Scramble action sequences.

Be sure to play this game with some high-quality headphones (better by far than earbuds for this game) and you'll really be in for a treat- the soundtrack is at least on part with Osmos, and the art direction and visual quality is extremely high.

It certainly takes concentration to maneuver the lander onto the platform with concerns about fuel consumption, flying meteors and dropping rocks to worry about also- one must balance urgency with route planning, fuel conservation and some surprises in between (dark side of the moon).

This game is like it's an intense sci-fi ride, but far more subtle in it's form; like the realm of "2001: A Space Odyssey" than Star Wars; a sublime ride through a well-crafted story that carries you through the tricky maneuvers needed to succeed in this deep and enjoyable game.

5/5 stars

Amazing

:
Great game, with amazing graphics, REALLY fun with a wonderful combination of comic book and great lunar lander game. One, teensy weensy complaint: The game doesn't orientate to which side you're playing. Kinda annoying with an IPAD stand.
