Interplanetary: Enhanced Edition launch trailer
Despite trying to harken back to a simpler and fun time in gaming, Interplanetary: Enhanced Edition adds unnecessary complication to a game that is broken to begin with. The style is unique and enjoyable, but the root of the game - firing shots to kill the others - is so broken and frustrating it is recommended to stay away. The simulation part is simply too complex, too prone to random luck, killing everything anyway, and shot placement is so horrendously bad the only thing keeping a player going is perhaps wanting to beat it once to never touch it again.
Overall, Interplanetary is an exceptional game. Great gameplay, lovely looking visuals, even better music and challenging AI. Interplanetary's USP of combining physics, gravity and orbits into artillery fire pays off extremely well, providing an experience that is compelling and rewarding.
