If you’re looking for a fun and creative game for you iPhone or iPad, look no further. NightSky is easily one of the most beautiful and original iOS games we have ever seen, having received plenty of critical acclaim and several GDC awards. The concept is simple: transport a mysterious sphere through boards by swiping on the screen to spin. Swipe up to reverse gravity and swipe down to return gravity to normal. Obstacles lie in your path, so you must find ways around them or put them to use. And the entire game is set atop wonderful art with silhouettes and shapes reminiscent of a Tim Burton movie.
Here’s the app’s full description:
