Game: Going Galactica

Captain Pip’s spaceship crash-landed somewhere in space. Maybe his piloting skills were getting a bit too rusty. Maybe an asteroid hit him. In any case, he’s got a problem. To survive, he must now find his way out of the spaceship to set off the SOS signal before his oxygen runs out. To play this game: Captain Pip navigates through different levels of the ship to get to the surface of his spaceship, where, presumably (he’s hoping), his distress signal beacon still works. He toggles switches to open doors and collect batteries to keep his oxygen suit powered. Tap to move Captain Pip. To switch gravitational directions to access nuisance switches, swipe left, right, up or down.


Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…
