    I always love space and I have a great idea for the game can we please make universes and core temperatures on planets and core size also can we slow down time or speed it up if you do this I will rate the game five stars. From Chase Anthony

    I like the concept of this app... But the inability to shift the background from purple to black makes it nearly impossible to see on a small phone. Save your money if you have a “older” phone
  • Great game here’s some suggestions

    I think it would be a cool idea if players could add rings to planets. Also the player can only change the name I think it would be great is the play could change everything of the planets. Also if the players could make there own planet. Now I think this is the beast part of this review the best idea that I thought of is that the game could have some type of campaign. P.S hopefully you do at least one of them. Again great job and great work keep it up.

    I love this tool. People who call it a game truly miss the potential for exploration. If I may, a time element could be incorporated to determine how long a year is for any orbiting body. Even so this one is a real mind trip, for those with imagination. One thing... There is no good way to make asteriod belts. If you could choose asteriod belt and then establish an orbital radius, that would be cool. The program could treat the whole thing as one object, instead of trying to add hundreds of asteriods.
  • Amazing

    Relaxing, awe inspiring, gave me chills. Especially gorgeous on larger devices, this blew my mind. Question though, any idea how to access settings or a menu?
  • A wonderful sandbox

    This game is really incredible because it can take the sophistication of astrophysics and give you simple tools to navigate and control the a galaxy. It’s really beautiful. I went into an Apple store where SPACE was installed on the display iPads. On a 2017 iPad Pro 12.9 this game was incredibly fluid. It’s simple UI didn’t need any explanation, I was immediately setting up planets and stars and black holes. I was really taken aback by how cool this app was. Knowing that part of the appeal of this app is the simplicity, I could understand not wanting to mess with it too much. But there are some functions that I think would really make this a lot more fun: 1. The ability to speed up time. Somethings I want to just see if a certain cluster I made is going to be fine in the long term. I like to experience the early parts of a forming start system, but there are other times where I just want to see the ‘end game’ of it. 2. Menu to hide the names and/or paths of the planets and stars. This seems to make everything really crowded when zoomed out. 3. Menu option to set ‘selecting distance’ or something to that effect. There are a lot of times when I’m editing and rotating the camera around a system, one of my swipes to rotate is interpreted as moving a blue giant 200 billion miles away. If I’m zoomed in on a system, i want to be editing only that system. This a a really fun game. I’m the biggest issue for me is that once I get to around 20 stars/planets, it requires more power than my iPhone 7 can provide without draining the battery or getting hot. I understand that incorporating my “time speed up” idea would likely put even more strain on the phone, having to calculate the gravity of the galaxy at 2000 times the speed it normally does. But it runs great on the current generation of phones.
  • Waste of Money!

    I’m really into astronomy and had high hopes for this Space app based on the App Store editors review, but it was a huge disappointment. You can add various celestial bodies in space, but you can’t see them unless you zoom in individually. They are just tiny dots! What a waste of money!
  • Good, but the glitches...

    I absolutely loved this app until I got up to seven objects in my miniature cosmos. It was glitching and spun me around my universe and was jerking around so I couldn’t do anything. Anyways, everything else is great. I would recommend having a key for each object that you have to be recorded in and tells you where it is in your universe. Please fix this glitch
  • Love it but...

    I can’t get to the galaxy all it gives me is 1 light day and then poof won’t go further
  • Great concept - poor execution

    Being neither a rocket scientist or astrophysicist, I will assume the physics are correct in this model. It’s interesting to see how bodies interact and the music is ethereal and spacey, however it’s the visuals that fall well short. First the text, orbital lines are all light purple on a dark purple background making it all very difficult to see. They need stronger contrasting colors like bright yellow or white. Secondly, while proportionally having the planets as tiny micro dots may be accurate, it makes for a poor simulation. At the very least their relative size needs to be exaggerated to make the sim more visible.
