    Lost Orbit takes a simple premise and builds it into something that is more than the sum of its parts. Load times aside, it is a fantastic portable experience on Switch. Solid, ever-evolving gameplay and great presentation make this an easy pick up for anyone who likes high score games.

    Although Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is merely an update of a 4 year old game, it's still one unique, challenging, and highly enjoyable narrative space adventure. Mastering its tough campaign is definitely rewarding stuff.

    Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is a fun game to play. The fast maneuvering as you narrowly avoid before crashing into a rock so hard your skeleton leaves your body, only to forever hurtle through space. Backed up with some great music, it feels like you’re on a great space journey. Minor issues aside, if you have a few hours to kill and a few bucks to spend Lost Orbit is a decent way to spend both.

    LOST ORBIT: Terminal poses several score challenges to the player while featuring a simple and accessible gameplay. The incentives for players to use their skill in order to seek higher scores are the main asset of LOST ORBIT: Terminal, which could provide a more fluid experience if it had shorter loading times but the overall verdict is of a game that knows how to get players to engage with a score attack challenge.

    Lost Orbit offers a solid experience, but intermittent performance and some curious design decisions take some of the shine off this title. Still, with over fifty individual levels plus a time trial mode, there’s no shortage of content on display.

    Great fun game. This game looks great, has great controls and is fun and challenging for me. Uses some pretty unique concepts for propellingGreat fun game. This game looks great, has great controls and is fun and challenging for me. Uses some pretty unique concepts for propelling our hero thru space after having lost his space ship, and having to travel with only his space suit and jet pack to get home.
    Humorous story line and great cut/story scenes. Only played a few levels so far and learning as I go.
