Kometen is extremely pretty, but it just doesn't do much. If you are expecting an action packed experience, look elsewhere, but if pretty and simple are your cup of tea, this one is great.

- Different regions to explore with new and unique music, backgrounds and objects
- Improved controls (quicker and smoother maneuvering of your comet)
- More food, debris and other fantastic things to see on your journey
- Killing your comet now requires confirmation (tap five times in the upper left corner on the comet info screen)
- Various small bug fixes and improvements

App Description

"Have you ever wondered if there was an app out there with the soul purpose of nurturing your spirit in the most beautiful way possible? Kometen is a game for the iPhone and iPad that does just this with elegance and grace." – AppDiscover

“This is a remarkable addition to the app store that will separate itself from the crowded offerings of the same old same old with its own style and polish. Taking a seat next to Zen Bound, Kometen utilizes the unique aspects of the device perfectly and will be that app you want to share (show off perhaps?) with friends.” — No dpad
