What is Save the Comet?

Save the Comet is an arcade game that combines arcade style elements with endless runner elements and uses physics and gravity style controls to help you guide the comet away from danger. It is free to play with in app purchases.

The game’s claim to fame is in the game play and controls. You don’t actually control the comet that you tasked with keeping safe. Instead, you control the elements around the comet. You use things like the gravity of planets to change the course of the comet and you must figure out a way to blow up other comets and obstacles before it destroys the comet. If the comet crashes, it’s game over.

It features some trance-style music which isn’t unpleasant and the graphics are simple 2D sprites over a starry background. There are four “levels” you can play in that are named after nebulas and the various stages are named in the lingo of astronomy which only adds to the atmosphere.
