Arcade-style shooter Orbital (3.5/5 stars, all ages) is today’s Amazon Free App of the Day. From Amazon:
You must shoot orbs into a grid with your cannon. The orb you fired will expand until it touches a wall or another orb. Each orb contains the number ‘3’, which decreases by one every time it is hit. After 3 hits they explode and you earn a point. The game could be endless… There is just one condition: a shot orb must not touch the death line above the cannon! If it does, the game is over.
A simple concept to wrack your brains and nerves.
WHAT THE CRITICS SAY
“A picnic to understand, but a marathon to get beyond the first few minutes, Orbital’s simple style is perfect for those looking for fill the odd spare moment.” 8/10

“BitForge has managed to combine the addictive gameplay of Peggle and the beauty of Geometry Wars, two digital forms of crack, into one easy to use package.”
- Chad George (thatvideogameblog.com)
“Orbital has got fantastic graphics and unfussy features. Come to think of it, there are really no negative points about the game. Good going, Bitforge!” 5/5
