    Nevertheless, Rymdkapsel feels tailor-made for iOS in both form and function, and its elegant, subtle constituent parts nest within one another as neatly as its four-block tetrominos snap together along a space station corridor.

    Accessible and engaging, Rymdkapsel puts a fun retro-minimalist spin on a familiar genre – a perfect combination for gobbling up your free time.

    Its simplicity allows players to focus on the big picture aspects of building, directing, and growth, while its puzzle-like room construction adds a layer of complexity that encourages different approaches each playthrough.

    How minimalistic can you make a strategy title? The answer is Rymdkapsel. Super addictive, with a flair for details and clever design. Rymdkapsel is a short but perfect brain twister for iPad.

    Rymdkapsel leaves a lasting impression like few iOS games, and provides such a worthwhile experience in the heat of the battle making it a must buy that everyone should take part in.

    It's hard to tell just what rymdkapsel is with nothing but screen shots to go on, but rest assured that whatever it is, it's awesome.

    Using simple building mechanics, sparse hands-off combat, and just a light smattering of overall goals to achieve, Rymdkapsel’s gameplay reinforces its presentation to offer a clever and challenging experience.

    Short but relaxing game. Like tower defence yoga where you will become one with the cosmos.
    Wishing, however that you could have more than
    two minions in every defense bunker because after level 30 it´s almost impossible to survive.
    But a wonderful game, highly recommended! One tip is to not play it on your girlfriend's family dinner, I got the evil eye when I did that

    The genius of rymdkapsel is how immersive and deep the gameplay is despite the intuitively compressed minimalist presentation. Anyone looking for a 'deeper' mobile game is well served by rymdkapsel. Full Review »

    A surprisingly fun game that draws an intriguing amount of diversity from a few simple ingredients. I'm not a core gamer, but I greatly enjoyed this meditative space strategy game. Full Review »
