6th Planet tells the story of a near future, where the planet Saturn suddenly changes into a possible place for humans to live. To find out what is going on, a monkey is sent into space. This is the beginning of a series of events that will determine mankind’s future.

The goal of the game is to guide your space pod to the landing site on the other side of the level. With only two buttons to work with, it is a simple concept that’s easy to pick up, but hard to master. The Story Mode contains 50 levels, divided across 7 worlds. This stands for at least four hours of gameplay. If you succeed in finishing this mode, you unlock the Master levels, which is a collection of very challenging levels for you to try out. This mode will be updated in the future with more content.

- Update (v2.0.1): Control boxes enlarged to increase touch area, this should help fix the control issues that were reported.

    Excellent app. Challenging enough to keep me entertained. Btw, rock bottom level is unbeatable. Fix it.

    Game has a lot of potential, would probably be a 4-5 star game if - they fixed the controls so its not so hard to activate the vertical thruster. The tap zones are too small - the level "rock bottom" has a bug in it that makes it unbeatable Other than those two glaring issues this is a good game with lots of potential. The cut scenes are unique and very well done. I'll update my review if these issues can be addressed Update: lowered my rating to 1 star because the level rock bottom still has a bug in it that makes the game unbeatable. Other people have pointed this out too, but unfortunately no update for the game. Too bad because it was actually kind of fun. Avoid buying this game in its current state.

    An ambitious game that can't quite live up to its own lofty goals, 6th Planet ranges from fun to broken, but *always* feels pretentious. The fantastic soundtrack combines with beautiful (and well-presented) artwork to make an extremely strong first impression. The slow-paced and middling game play, though relaxing, is always boring and uninteresting. Though the game posits itself as some revolution in video-game storytelling, you'll find the narrative weirdly disjoined from the actual game; its constantly preachy and awkward dialogue undermines the amazing artwork. It is here that the game's try-too-hard, full-of-itself aspects manifest: the story constantly tells the reader how to feel about the game, the protagonists, politics, and human nature, without ever telling us *why* we should feel that way. It comes off as pretentious, sloppy, and unlikeable. Most damning, though, is a glitch in the level "Rock Bottom" that makes the level, and thus the game, completely unbeatable. That's right, the game is broken.

    Amazing game. The music and sounds are very unique, and the "comic" cut scenes are beautifully drawn. Game is harder than I expected (sometimes difficult to engage both controls) but adds to the challenge. Enjoying this one very much!

    Awesome game and even better graphics
  • by Siddharth 3/28/2013
    Good concept. Only complain would be it not registering the upward thrust when I press both left,and right thrust at the same time. Its a hit or a miss. No complaints apart from that. Good effort...
