Finnish indie mobile game under further development by Expa Game Club. The game was released for Android at first by EXPA - IGDA Finland Jyväskylä Hub on April 17th, 2014. The main character is an anonymous kid who is being bullied at school for wearing an astronaut's helmet and playing with a toy rocket. When the other kids are trying to steal the rocket, the kid escapes to another dimension. By traveling through space, the kid gathers courage to face the conflict. The actual playing is done by flying with point-click movements, with an option to use turbo thrusters. Finish the level fast enough, collect all of the orbs or find a collectible for achievement medals!

First of all, sorry it took long to answer your question! The game has worked on all of our devices so far, with the oldest Android version having been 4.0.4. We'll try to get our hands on older devices though and test more. :)

Hello, my friend tried to play this game on his samsung galaxy note 3 android kit Kat, but the game crashes constantly, also happened with my other friend who use android jelly bean on his HTC. I can't try this game yet since I don't have any good android device. However, this game looks promising enough in my eyes, but too bad both of my friends said if the game was unplayable cause by crashed.
Hope you fix this soon
