Critic Reviews for Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity

If you can imagine Asteroids meets Frogger in Space, you have a fairly good idea of what to expect from LOST ORBIT: Terminal Velocity. The game play is entertaining and the difficulty levels ramp up at a reasonable slope. The storyline doesn't bring much to the table, but the game mechanics stand on their own just fine.

Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is a decent game. The gameplay can get slowed down by the story at times, but when upgrading abilities and hitting that Zen moment while speeding through a level, it feels pretty great. Even if it is just a short time with the game, it’s still a pretty fun time. I would suggest picking it up if you are a fan of the trial and error style games like Velocity, Trials, and others where you don’t mind trying to perfect your time.

LOST ORBIT: Terminal is a challenging game based on exploration and with incentives for the players to improve their skills. With its well-humoured plot and emphasis on high scores, LOST ORBIT: Terminal could benefit from having shorter loading times but there is no doubt that this is a game that will appeal to players who enjoy seeking higher scores.

Lost Orbit takes a simple premise and builds it into something that is more than the sum of its parts. Load times aside, it is a fantastic portable experience on Switch. Solid, ever-evolving gameplay and great presentation make this an easy pick up for anyone who likes high score games.

Although Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is merely an update of a 4 year old game, it's still one unique, challenging, and highly enjoyable narrative space adventure.
