    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.

    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 is an addictive, hypnotic waste of time.
  4. A weirdly engaging game that can easily eat away a long evening of couch lounging.

    A fascinating spin on the RTS genre that shows you just how intricate minimalist design can be.

    In essence, you have to play it less and less, and it will feel better every time. It's all about going out of your way not to go out of your way.

    Rymdkapsel is a special strategy game for your tablet or phone. Play it for fifteen minutes and you'll end up confused. Play it longer and you'll imagine you're playing a classic RTS, without a story though. Rymdkapsel looks charming with its minimalistic graphics and limits itself to the essentials, but in the end this is also the reason why it plays like many other games in the genre.

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    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
