6th Planet has already had great success on iOS and luckily us BlackBerry PlayBook owners now have the opportunity to get a slice of the pie. The game is all about controlling your space pod and guiding it to the landing area. That sounds pretty easy but of course it isn't that straight forward. Gravity is sucking you down so you must utilise the controls to avoid crashing into the ground or other obstacles. There are only two on-screen controls and these manoeuvre the pod either left/right or holding down both at the same time will move it upwards.
As you progress through the levels the course you need to take gets harder and with other objects entering your space you need to guide your pod around them. Just to make life a little harder you only get a certain amount of fuel so speed is of the essence. Running out of juice will send you plummeting to your doom.
As shown in the video, there are a selection of hand drawn animations before each level so if you appreciate a good comic then you will love this extra feature. There is the option within the settings to disable them if they get on your nerves.
6th Planet is a pretty chilled out game but will test your piloting skills. As well as being addictive the game comes at a decent price too - only $0.99/£1.00. Well worth the money in my opinion.
