Rotate planet with finger

This app is a little app which is fun for little journeys to work or school. The story is that life has mysteriously vanished from the Plop galaxy and only you can save it by healing the planets with magic drops. You rotate the planet to catch the drops by sliding your finger along the bottom of the screen to the section of the planet with the colour of the drop. And that's about it.

Except there is another character called Mister Onion (he looks like an Onion) who drops life, coin, power-ups (like a shield) or poison which kills you. However, you can use mountains to get rid of poison. There are also objectives which will challenge you a lot. What the game doesn't have in storyline it does have in predictability and you will keep playing it for hours.

Sadly, that's it and with all great little games this game has some drawbacks. The game's opening screen is quite confusing and the difficulty spikes are slightly to much as the second level alone took me ages to complete. Also, when you die then you have to start from the beginning again unless you buy or find a life which is very frustrating.

The graphics are really nice and the backround colour changes to the colour of the last drop which has gone into the planet. The sound effects and music are really good as well and suit the game well.

Conclusion: overall this game is game is a fun, casual action, puzzler game with cute graphics and a nice idea but it would be nice if there was a little more in it.

Rating: 65%

Thanks for reading, Satamer.
