Little Galaxy: Are you ready for space travel?

,
Fresh from watching the Gravity 3D movie, it was simply awesome. The vastness of space and the dangers faced by the astronauts were convincingly captured in it. Well this is not a review post of the movie :) it's just that "space" is one of my area of interest. 

And see, this time I have a game to share which is also related to "space". Little Galaxy by developer Bitmap Galaxy is an Android arcade game set in space. In this game you play as a young boy jumping from one planet to another in his journey.


Little Galaxy game is quite light weight but it's 3D graphics are pretty cool and gives a realistic feel of planets, stars etc., but please do not compare it with "Galaxy on Fire 2" which is simply the best but a much heavier game.

Game Play
The game play is pretty simple you just need to keep jumping from one planet to another. But mind you, life in space is not that simple and if you remember in Gravity movie Sandra also says "I hate space" at some point. While jumping you need to consider the gravitation force of other nearby planets or else you will be lost in space, also as the planets are rotating on their axis you need to wait for the right time before jumping. About the game controls, just press on the screen whenever you are ready to jump, that's it no other action required.

As you play the game you keep collecting points like if you spin along the planet you collect points, spins are counted also the number of planets you visited are counted. Each game level has some associated objectives, once you achieve the objectives you move to the next level.

Game levels have time limit associated with it, while in the game on the top left side of screen you will see darkness covering the moon, once the moon is completely eclipsed your game is over, so do not spend too much time on one planet and quickly move on to another one.

Game objectives could be like scoring specific number of game points, visit number of planets, watering sun-flowers or taking specific number of spins. It is OK if you do not complete all the level objectives in one go, if you have completed only one out of three objectives, you can play the level again till all the objectives are achieved.

There are some special items which could be collected like magnets, if you collect three of them, points will get attracted to you or if you collect three stars you gets an extra life.

One such item is to catch the comet as seen in the below screenshot, if you catch the comet you will get some extra time to complete the level. Big jumps are also awarded with extra points. 
So, go ahead play the game and see how far can you go?
