Cosmic Clean-Up (Free) by Ripstone Ltd is a game that challenges you to take on the biggest cleaning job in history.
Your task involves flying through space and making sure it’s completely clear. That means you have to get rid of clouds, meteors, satellites, and anything else that’s floating around.
To remove the floating objects, you have to blast them with your ship’s thrusters. If you crash into anything by accident, you fail the level.
There are various types of objects that need to be removed. Some are tiny and easy to clear, while others are huge and more difficult to blast away. You’ll eventually start to encounter missiles that make your task even more challenging.
The controls are basic, but they work perfectly well. You just touch the right side of the screen to turn clockwise and the left side of the screen to turn anticlockwise. The intuitive controls and basic gameplay make Cosmic Clean-Up ideal for short bursts of action whenever you have any spare time.
Various power-ups help improve your spaceship’s performance. If you have enough scraps, you can even replace your spaceship with a more powerful one.
You get the scraps by progressing through the game or by paying for them with in-app purchases. 30,000 scraps cost as much as $0.99. That’s enough upgrade your ship and pay for plenty of power-ups.
The sounds and background music are worth mentioning as they do a good job of making you feel like you’re an astronaut.
Overall, I’d say that Cosmic Clean-Up is a good option for those of you who are looking for a casual game that isn’t too challenging.
The gameplay is quite addictive and the app is well-designed, but it isn’t as exciting or challenging as some of the other casual games that have arrived in the App Store recently.
You can get Cosmic Clean-Up for both the iPhone and iPad free in the App Store.
