    The best way to sum this game up is that it's like a labyrinth game but on steroids. Just tilt the device to move your character through the levels while avoiding traps, opening doors, bouncing, sliding and not falling off.

    The second chapter of Dark Nebula improves on the original where improvements needed to be made. A great game just got better.

    The game is clearly made by a professional, and I can't recommend it enough.

    Dark Nebula - Episode 2 has developed in just the right ways to recapture what made the original so successful while building in new, exciting action elements.

    Dark Nebula Episode Two is a triumph of budget game design on the AppStore.

    It's the best rolling ball platform puzzler ever. [Christmas 2010, p.91]

    A simple but solid franchise as Dark Nebula could only give birth to a high-quality sequel, but frankly we didn't expect so many new ideas. The graphics of the game, already excellent, have been further improved and now offer levels rich in details, well defined and unique. Episode Two is immediate and entertaining as Episode One, the tilt controls are very accurate and the action is characterized by a continuous introduction of new challenges to overcome. A must buy.

    Hours are casually tossed aside in the process of ensuring that a ball safely reaches its destination, via moving walkways, spiked traps, bounce pads, industrial crushers and laser fire.

    Few genres have transitioned well to mobile devices other than puzzle and simulation games to date. Sure you have your standard action RPGsFew genres have transitioned well to mobile devices other than puzzle and simulation games to date. Sure you have your standard action RPGs (Dungeon Hunter, Chaos Rings) and old School games (Myst, Oregon Trail), but in general those still don't feel right on the touch portable devices. What does feel right is a game built from the ground up specifically for mobile devices, that uses the innate controls of the system (touch or tilt), and has aesthetic sensibilities that fit. Such thinking has delivered greats from Zen Bound to Infinity Blade. Thankfully 1337 Design understands, and has delivered a phenomenal game that suits the platform perfectly, stands tall next to mobile game greats, and betters the original in every way. Expand

    Weird this game is. It's simple in it's design but the way it's presented makes a player feels like his controling some kind of super heroWeird this game is. It's simple in it's design but the way it's presented makes a player feels like his controling some kind of super hero through sci-fi advanture RPG world... :) Every time it's magical how a game is far better than a sum of its parts. Graphic 6/10, audio 6.5/10, gameplay 8/10. I'm suprised but this game is actually good but don't expect much. :) Expand
