Interstellar – the ingenious tie-in to an unconventional space oddysey

Interstellar may just prove to be the next best thing when it comes to mobile simulation apps in space! The game is actually a tie-in to the movie with the same name launching in theatres in a few weeks.

It appears that the trend of tie-in mobile games to wanna-be blockbusters is just starting and Christopher Nolan’s most recent creation was bound to take part in the hype if we are to compare it with last year’s Gravity. The game is a free download for Android 4.0 and above devices and has no annoying in-app purchases.

The game has a group of space explorers for main characters and they are looking for a black hole somewhere in the universe. The player is the one who pilots the spaceship Endurance through space in the search of a beginning and of ultimate salvation.

The gameplay allows users to travel through solar systems and galaxies and they will have to find fuel and win the race against time. The graphic is pretty great for a free game, and it even tops developer games, and the game mechanic is similar to reality, incorporating real-world physics and gravitational pulls.

Planets, stars and asteroids can be customized and the ship can be improved through missions. You can even pilot your ship through friends’ solar systems and vice versa. The controls are rather hard as you would expect a space adventure to be and the solar systems you visit are more than just shallow graves; they are carefully created by the custom world and moon generator.
