"ORBITAL is a game of skill, it's a game of strategy, it's a game of reflexes, and it's a game you will keep front and center of your iPhone for weeks on end."
John Bardinelli

"Orbital is the most visually appealing brick breaker type game that I have ever laid eyes on and had the chance to play." 5/5

"Orbital has got fantastic graphics and unfussy features. Come to think of it, there are really no negative points about the game. Good going, Bitforge!" 5/5

"Orbital takes simple gameplay and dresses it up with a unique “gravity” feature and enhanced graphics. The game can be very frustrating at times, but that won’t keep you from coming back for another try." 4/5
Will Raskin

"While there are already a few iPhone games that share the same gameplay mechanics as Orbital, none of them look anywhere near as cool. "
Eli Hodapp

"I can almost guarantee that Orbital will secure a coveted spot among the top retro games in the app store!" 5/5
Emil Frank

"Despite it’s simplicity, it’s incredibly addictive and very challenging. I find myself continually saying just one more time…" 9/10
Shaun Campbell

"ORBITAL is a highly original game with a good difficulty level and the guaranteed 'One last game and then I'll stop' effect. Highly recommended."
Giuseppe Migliorino

"BitForge has managed to combine the addictive gameplay of Peggle and the beauty of Geometry Wars, two digital forms of crack, into one easy to use package."
Chad George

"From our time with it, it's looking to be a very smooth, simple physics game with a lot of added polish."
Andrew Podolsky

"The right choice for those iPhone owners who don't want to play standard games."
