Earlier this morning, Eli and I spent some time with Unknown Orbit [Free]. It's a hill climber that tasks you with guiding a meteor around a craggy 3D planet. When you pick up enough speed, you can launch off the planet's surface and into its orbit. The catch is that you need to collect little balls of snow to stay alive and orbiting. The longer you survive, the more points you earn.

If you're not following, this is a little like what would happen if someone turned Tiny Wings in a 3D game based in outer space. The end result is interesting, but not all that satisfying as far as raw fun is concerned. Still, it's a good idea.

We're not so sure where we stand on Unknown Orbit, but we've got some footage. See if it clicks with you:

    Attractive game, but looks to take motion sickness to a new level.

    The striped texture on the ground feels like Tiny Wings as well.

    you two are funny 😛
