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.

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 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.
