Sputnik is an arcade game, where player guides a spaceship through asteroids and UFOs by tilting his device. Player needs to get as far into outer space as possible, past Mars, Saturn - all the way out of the Milky Way. Player will travel through gravitational fields, black holes, distorted space-time continuum and other tricky places in the galaxy, but he should always remember that the controls remain the same - just tilt left or right!

"We wanted to create something really addictive, an endless game. We spent months tweaking the controls and trying to get everything right– that’s how Sputnik was born." said Victoria Trofimova, Director at Nordcurrent. "We hope players will enjoy it!”
