Puzzle in Motion 'Satellina' Arrives on Android! Listen to this article

Last week I reviewed ‘Satellina’, the puzzle in motion game I called a rare ‘simple to learn but constantly challenging’ experience that is well worth the $1.99 cost. This week as promised Moon Kid has released the game for Android on the Google Play store, and has also unleashed a free download from the game’s unique soundtrack! Check it out!

In Satellina, patterns of green, yellow, and red particles move around the screen in sync with a melodic synthpop soundtrack. The objective is deceptively simple: drag your finger to collect only the green particles without bumping into yellow or red. When you’ve cleared all the green particles, yellow particles turn green and red particles turn yellow. Clear them all to complete the level — but don’t bump the wrong color, or you’ll have to start over!

With 50 hypnotic levels, a challenging but rewarding (and never punitive) difficulty curve, and a timed structure perfect for speedrunning, Satellina is a minimalist game that sucks you in. While the constant motion and running timer provide challenge and tension, the particles follow repeating routes, so success relies as much on pattern recognition and puzzle solving as it does on quick reflexes. Satellina includes an alternate color palette to accommodate players with red/green colorblindness.

Satellina Soundtrack
Satellina’s complete synthpop soundtrack is up on BandCamp, eleven original tracks that can be streamed for free or downloaded (MP3, FLAC and more) with “Pay What You Want” pricing.

A sample MP3 track, “Eternal Return,” was released today.

You can grab the Android version of Satellina at the Google Play store for $1.99. You can also grab the game from the iTunes App Store.
