Inertia: Escape Velocity is an anti-gravitational good time

Inertia: Escape Velocity is notable for doing something completely different from other platformers for your phone. Yeah, it has a lot of jumping around and stuff, but it's got a legitimate hook that makes it far more interesting than your average platformer. Inertia's hook is that you're in space, ...

Android App Video Review: Magic Portals

The game utilizes portals in simple yet inventive ways, and it's full of pleasant surprises. This isn't to say that it is without flaws, of course. Not by a long shot.

Android App Video Review: Inertia: Escape Velocity HD

The simple premise of the game is that you crash your ship, and must go about each level collecting enough scrap metal to repair it and move on. You seem crash it in every galaxy you visit, so I'd imagine you're either the unluckiest or the worst pilot in the cosmos, and should probably quit anyway. ... Full Article »
