Spaceflight Simulator app review
This game is one of the best space flight games for Android. Many people compare this game with other space simulator games, such as Kerbal Space Program and Orbiter. Its initial release on Android devices is highly appreciated as an effort to make this kind of game genre accessible to everyone. On top of that, you don’t have to use a high-end Android device to play this game due to its non-graphic-intensive gameplay. The game’s 2D graphic is complemented by enough effects to let the player be more focused on what the game is trying to sell, the real-world physics.
Real-world physics provides challenging gameplay. For that reason, many people described this game as easy-to-pick-up but hard-to-master. Launching a rocket to orbit is easy. But, the same thing cannot be said when landing. This elaborate and realistic physics will push you through the trial and error process. So, don’t get easily disheartened if your first rocket fails. We’ve all been there. Luckily, the game features a simple yet intuitive UI. This feature can immediately be seen when building a rocket. To complete this crucial process, you just have to drag the right parts and drop them on the available slot.
Despite being developed by one person, the game is very rich in content. For instance, you can build your own custom rocket by combining different parts, such as fuel tanks, thruster, probes, and aerodynamics. On top of that, the game also embraces the open universe concept where you can explore different planets in the solar system. Finally, here’s our final verdicts:
- Realistic physics that will immerse players in hours of gameplay
- Simple control but a complicated mechanic
- Rich in content, creating the unlimited possibility of crafting and exploring
- Frequent bugs and glitches
Tips and tricks for beginners
If you’re new to this game, it is strongly advised to get used to the controls, mechanics, and physics first. Once you do that, you can build your own rocket. Your first rocket design should be simple and easy to use. Now, to launch your rocket to orbit, make sure you have enough fuel and engine power to reach beyond the outer atmosphere. Once you reach the outer atmosphere, you can lean your rocket to the right or left, forming an arched line on the map. Slowly, the arches will get bigger and eventually will form a circle around the planet. If your rocket is intact, then congratulations! You’re now officially a rocket engineer.
