    NightSky’s mix of challenging puzzles and relaxing mood is a winner, but it can get frustrating repeating the first part of a level over and over again.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Can't believe no one using Android has ever rated this game, and the folks that made it there Thank you, your awesome.the game is in that The Room, category for tablet or phone touch controls. Perfect. Your a guy that is out walking the beach one night and you find a crystal sphere. It glow's a bit like it's alive and so on. Well then the dreams began. The levels are well thought out and progressively get harder. There are plenty and it's always a pretty nights sky. The music is a ambient drift that takes your nerves and sets them at peace as you get your sphere from begging to end. The sound of the sphere as it bounces rain or open night sky is wonderful touch. This game is at the Google app store for only 99 cents and we'll Worth it all. If you are into well maid touch games or just want a top notch way to waste time or even just unwined this game is it. Thanks for reading and don't cut your self short on this fantastic app game. Peace..... Expand
