Even in the frustrating moments when the controls seem to have it out for you, there’s so much to like about Heavenly Bodies. It’s a wonderful concept for a game, it’s impressively polished, and it’s hyper-focused in the best way. It feels like the devs took their time. While it may be a struggle, it’s a fun struggle.
One of the best game i ever played!! I really love the feeling, musics, settings. Hard mode it’s really difficult, but give you a lot of satisfaction!! I’ve also gotten platinum trophy and even achieving normal trophies are satisfied
One of the latest indies surprises of 2021, an enjoyable game that recreates the aesthetics and some situations of the space movies of the 70's with tons of sympathy, that you can also enjoy in local coop. It's not very long and have some control issues, but it's so funny that you will forgive almost everything.
Heavenly Bodies is not your average cup of coffee, not even for indie games. It has a very specific audience it set its target on and delivers on its promise of challenging players through the control system. Visually and atmosphere wise it is clearly inspired by the classic, realistic sci-fi movies. The game itself is pretty short, but due to the control scheme, you will spend quite a lot of time even on the simplest tasks. Heavenly Bodies is not for everyone, but those who enjoy this kind of games will have a blast with it.
A brief fumble in the darkness of space, Heavenly Bodies is designed to beguile you with floaty, physics based puzzles. It will scramble your brains as you perform the most straightforward of tasks, at times testing your sanity and (if playing in co-op) the strength of any relationship.
Push past this, and you'll find a cleverly designed set of challenges that shine best in co-op. While things can quickly spiral if you're careless, completing objectives feels like a real triumph, and each mission scales things up, providing new ideas along the way. Once you have your head wrapped around it, Heavenly Bodies offers up wonderfully tactile puzzles, and the DualSense is really put through its paces. The game is rather short, but it does give you more to do after beating each mission. We should also mention there are three levels of control available, with the easiest allowing you to "swim" through the air (or lack of). While we do think there's a good time to be had here, be aware you'll need some patience to find the fun.
This game is lost in space. Prepare to get frustrated because of weird physics. Also no online Coop? Have to rely on shareplay? That purely ****. Sometimes you laugh and thats worth 2 stars. Most of the time you just wish you were playing something else.
