App Description

A sliding puzzle to think visually and swap stars in space.

"This is a unique and enjoyable puzzle game that provides enough of a challenge to keep players coming back for more"
- Lee Hamlet, 148Apps.com

"Games like Temple Run and Candy Crush come into our lives and are gone just as fast. I think I've found a game that might just give all of them a run for their money and actually stick around: Sky Scramble."
- Raven Hathcock, GameSkinny.com

"Sky Scramble is the only puzzle game I’ve encountered which doesn’t much rely on spatial, linguistic, or arithmetic reasoning, which makes it interesting both for fans of puzzles and for those who generally avoid the genre because of the limited variety of abilities in use."
- Kelsey Rinella, PocketTactics.com

"I was seriously impressed by this game. Definitely give it a try."
- Nicola Salmoria, NonTrivialGames.blogspot.com

**************

It has 180 levels (30 are free). Each level shows a constellation of moveable stars. The goal of the game is to move the smallest star to a specific place. The challenge is in finding the right path while the constellation shifts with each move the player makes. The stars, the constellation, the nebula background, the sound effects, and the music, all share a common theme: the cosmos. It's not about speed, it is not about explosions, it is about thinking visually in a relaxing environment.
