Discover mysterious monoliths. As you explore space, you'll find mysterious monoliths to make a part of your station.

What is it about?

This meditative strategy game challenges you to build the best, largest space station you can through exploration and shrewd commands. While there are occasional enemies to ward off, the goal of rymdkapsel is just to expand your space station as much as possible, building monoliths and other structures to make it the best possible outer space installation.

For those who...

  • Love the idea of exploring and occupying outer space
  • Enjoy meditative strategy games

Not for those who...

  • Want fast-paced action all the time
  • Don't enjoy tower defense games

Why we love it

This is a simplistic but gorgeous game that The New York Times says makes "its more ornate competitors feel needlessly garnished." You command a space station that starts off small, but you expand on as you explore the galaxy. Command your minions to build and, occasionally, defend your space station.

App Store Description

rymdkapsel is a meditative strategy game set in space. Take on the challenge of building the best possible station by commanding your minions and exploring the galaxy around you.

Imagine a strategy game where you don't have to worry about selecting units or mounting attacks on your enemies, but rather can focus on building the best base possible.

That's what rymdkapsel is all about.

"Rymdkapsel feels tailor-made for iOS in both form and function, and its elegant, subtle constituent parts nest within one another as neatly as its four-block tetrominos snap together along a space station corridor."
- 5/5 stars, Joseph Leray,

"Some games nearly make me miss my subway stop. Some games tempt me to keep on playing them while I'm walking down the street. This is one of them."
- Stephen Totilo,

"The game punishes the greedy, and rewards the prudent. If you’re attentive, you’ll notice that there’s actually a happy medium between the two: optimal efficiency."
- Ryan Rigney,

"Rymdkapsel combines spatial puzzling, tower defence and base-building into a brilliantly coherent and stylish whole."
- Christian Donlan,
