Versus doesn't work...

Nicholas Patton

Super duper

Alyssa N

Love this game to the max no ads hard levels just a masterpiece of a game keep doing great

Anthony Evans

Very engaging game. I've been playing since auralux was first released and I've always enjoyed playing it.

Kamal Arora

Money oriented game

Lumo Rowena Mooncaller

This game works with X-input controllers. It's a blast to play on the Retroid Pocket 2 and GPD XD. Also works on Android tv if and Google tv if you connect a Bluetooth controller.

Sid Van Ryswyk

Challenging and fun...

The Official Sea Pickle

Multiplayer is broke, tells me to contact developer.

Brian K

I'm a fan of the original Auralux. This really expands on it and i really like it. That said, controls don't work as well in this version. You can't choose areas in empty space easily, moves are frequently not registered, or mistakenly move the screen. Multiplayer is not working at this time, but looks like it'll be an option

Rony Thélémaque

Fun and challenging. Great Game.

Stefan-Dieter Knuff

Maybe on tablet but not mobile phone


Honestly very fun and makes you think outside the box

Momma Of3

Very entertaining but also challenging and frustrating

Jordache Naidoo

This is a very interesting stress relief game. Allows you to think without thinking! If you dis agree with my review go speak to a fellow engineer!


This is way better than the first part!! The graphics are even better! And the fact I can customize my main color orbits

Kel Kun

Jai adoré.

D. Engel

You have to pay for every single constellation.

Trevor Carpenter

I love this game!! I played years ago and still just as good as it was then.

Scott Miracle

love this game great way to pass time

Audel Barragán

Its gewwwd, 2 gewd (until u hav 2 pay)

Xan Surnamehere

This strategy game is amazing. My only issue with it was the levels locked behind a paywall, even if it's quite small. I still might purchase some of them.

Jeffery Wyzykowski

Well done. Somewhat finicky control mechanics are the only diminishing factor.


Really challenging levels even for the first constellation. Very fun to play with all the satisfying sound effects when two parties fight each other. Controls are intuitive but somewhat unfriendly as hold-to-pan or circle select constantly gets stuck, requiring an additional tap to exit the control sequence. All in all, really amazing game that has some minor issues with the controls.

Dave Scowen

Unplayable. The controls don't work.

Owen Beach

It's fine

Jesse Cobb

I played and finished this almost 5 years ago and just installed it on my new phone and i still love it

Reece Dial

Fantastic and challenging strategy game. I hated it at first thinking it was impossible, but it really stretched me to learn new tactics and strategies!


Love the game, but for some reason it won't let me play the versus...

Jordon Scott

Great, but controls need fixing

ςlครђ ๓คτєร

I feel bad for this game, it seems to be abandoned already :( The "Versus" multiplayer mode is not working and the game's latest update was 2016, what about 2022? 😩


Very difficult to actually select the units and give them an order. Like I want to select this planet, and move the units to that planet. It would take many multiple taps before it would actually register the command. Unless I zoomed in to the point where all I can see is the planet. The original Auralux was a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed the graphics upgrade for this one. I wish that this was playable on my phone.

Christopher Nelson

Great game!

Robert Heller

this was the first game I played on my first smartphone. brings back memories

Karen Rempe

I play this game for a week every year or so. It is a classic entertaining game.

Ben Kenealey

The interface is horrible. The tutorial wouldn't let me finish. Sets up the levels as mexican stand offs.

Bernard Shaker



Verses is not working. Game not been updated since 2016. Looks like the developer has abandoned the game. A shame since I've paid for the full game.

Brandon Dygert

Love this game and anything like it..!! Facts

Hannah Hunt

Very simple and cool, but engaging and challenging. And not so overwhelmingly hard that I just give up. Highly recommend

Edward Besoyan

Love the challenge. Keeps you on your feet. Gotta use your brain. Still playing 4 months later and still not tired of it

Joshua Puchalski

Great game, a few interface issues however.. easy to lose a game because of poor responses and false moves.. solid design however.

Aaron Hunt

Game is what it says it is. Hard but great

David Chandler

I played this game ages ago and loved it. I've revisited it, and I don't know what they changed, but the controls have gotten to be pretty much unusable. When I have units selected and try to target a sun, most of the time it just changes my selection, and it takes about three tries to get what I select to move where I want them to go. In the past, I got through almost the whole game, beating most of the insane levels, but now I'm so hobbled, I often lose easy levels to stupid control problems.

Angelica Wiid

For some reason I love it so much I play it over and over again 🙃 An update would be great!

Connor Mynott

The game was amazing... shame it hasn't updated or made any newer version's

Gerg Dinkleberg

The AI still needs some work. They focus more on the player than each other. Normal difficulty they will just team and wipe everything from the player with somehow constant force that the player cant keep up with. But mirror playing seems semi effective.


its alright gets a bit repetitive and honestly its first blood wins. so the "fun" comes from trying to beat the bots in a time race however my multiplayer does work. unless its behide a pay wall which would be weird since its not asking me to buy anything

Adam Smith

What is wrong with versus mode

Psalm Tree

Manipulation of units isn't always stable. Sometimes my units are misdirected because of glitch interfacing.

Isaac Eilebrecht

Very fun game, will occupy hours of your life with its challenging yet somehow calming gameplay. Although it is paid for the later levels, it has no ads. I haven't yet bought more, but I am considering it. The only issue is the unit selection system which is a little hard to get used to, but the game overall is incredible.

Tyee Jensen

I was going to give this game a better review until I realized you can only play like 5 levels and then the ENTIRE rest of the game is locked behind multiple pay walls. It's sad it could've been a good game.

Code Machine

Good game. Really enjoy it. The concept is nice. It is fun to play, but the controls are a bit jank to use. That's really the only thing bringing it down. Taking it down to 2 stars because it started asking for payment without warning WELL into the game. I really don't appreciate underhanded business tactics like that. If you are gonna use paywalls then at least put them in the beginning. Otherwise it is very scummy.


Touch interface/controls make precise control difficult and causes fumbles. Gameplay from the original is smoother. Only get to play two lvls on the second constellation before you have to purchase the rest of the levels. Honestly no idea why they made a second game for this instead of adding an update to the original. Good idea for orbits but not much fun when there are only two free lvls to play.

Cylan Avery

I used to play the first version of this game on iOS like 6 years ago or something and I absolutely loved it then. Bought all the packs and was happily working my way through till my ipod broke. I'm so happy I've refound not only it but a second version! The first says it's for an older phone version so I probably won't play that again and I'm a little bummed I can't restore any purchases since I didn't get to play through them all but can't wait to play all of these now that I've found it again

Richard Scott

Super engaging

Pat Bohne

Love this game


I really wish that it would stop selecting every unit in the map when I dont want it to, overall good game

Brandon Beissenherz

Great game

Eddy Hernandez

Want To Buy The Other Constellations But It Wont Let Me

Frederic-Leon Culmsee

UI is atrocious but the concept is great.

RED infinity

Great game with the exception that the hold down to move feature keeps going off when I try to click anything

chris winston

This is a really good game and I enjoy it but its also very frustrating that the A.I gangs up on you making some of the levels impossible to win and this is starting to take to enjoyment out of it.

Nick Johnson

Great so far

John Tregannon

Very cool game. Great design. Relaxing gameplay. Balanced yet challenging progression

Jamie B

Horrible controls

james gene

much better tutorial than the v1, and quite fun. The best games are often simple, this game shows that very well.

conrad kressley


Wyatt LaPee

Love the game, only issue I've been having is I can't access the versus mode because it says something about one or more Google services needed that are not available.


Return of an old favorite!

Mars The Bitter

I got the free version and enjoyed it, but as soon as I payed for the full game the controls instantly stopped working and the game is now unplayable.

Lohkie2_ _3

Love the concept, could be expanded in some aspects but decent game so far.

Josh Toews


Jeffery Humbolt

It's my favorite game.Only game I have ever spent money on ever.

Tragic Mike

Thus game cheats u I had the exact same planets as the cpu but they eventually overwhelmed me and the only way that would be possible is if they make units faster than the player does.

Novello Fourie

It's rather enjoyable and relaxing

Tony Lopez

Enjoyable game if you don't have much time on your hands

von raees

Well done!

Peter Bitante

Love the game I played the original many years ago and this has only improved upon it. Great job!

Spooky Children

Please please please fix this game. Brilliant game, fun to play. Great for developing strategic thinking, super cool graphics and I like the music too. Liked ot so much I played for the 3xtra levels and it was worth it. Levels go from easy to hard, some can be very challenging but with persistence can be beat. Super gratifying. But since the update it's now unplayable android device. Boooo. I wanna play so I can beat the final few levels. Replaying beaten levels can be fun too high score

Timothy Horne

First you have to deal with a tutorial box constantly popping up and the controls are difficult

Devin Serpa

Free levels fun but far too few.

Robin Heyer

Game is easy to get into but you will also need to make quick, tactical decisions. Challenges quickly go from 15 mins to an hour

Vinay Muley

I was looking for this game for so long time

Peyote Pete

Nifty! Kinda...

Alex B

Fun game

Sk Mohammad.jamil

One of the best mobile game I have ever played... Thanks for giving such a fantastic game.


after finishing all of the auralux 1 levels in a day, i had to install auralux 2 - and there are so many fun new features like orbits, white holes, and supernovae to keep me occupied :)

Go Fish

Great, challenging game. Too bad it often behaves strangely with my touch screen (unresponsive to taps, selection circles suddenly relocated to the wrong place.) It feels like the game is "cheating" to beat me.

Daniel Sandefur

Pay to unlock "storyline" maps pretty early into the game. Clunky selection tool. Twas a fun minute, but ultimately a pass

Raimonds Zakis

I would give this game 5 stars if it was even possible for me to deal with the controls. There should be a feature to disable the movement mode since it stops me from being able to play.

Marthinus Van Jaarsveldt III


Dj Angel Nonya

Very good game, wish you guys would update it again or at least make another game. If you really wanna leave this game in the dust without people bugging you for another installment, I suggest you lend us a level editor update with every single mechanic available and maybe even include the ability to have more than 1 starting planet. Some other things for a level editor could be: changing the ammount of starting units, using a vanilla level you purchased as a base, and having more than 3 ai foes

Tonio Bode

At first I thought it was very hard to beat. But if you get used to playing it a little more confronting to the AIs you get the swing of it and then it is definitely fun. I still prefer Solarmax 2, but it somehow is not available anymore. So this will do.

John Kirk

Simple yet fun game

Jaimee Maurer

Trash your controlls dont work i cant belive i sept a dollar

Account User

Horrible horrible controls, there are so many bugs with it including sending all units to one place by just accidentally tapping, the circle becoming bigger when trying to tap a location, a bug where the camera is stuck in place and etc. Waste of time, do not play.

Austin Ashby

Fun stuff

Greg Hyman

Unique concept, and very well implemented. Simple rules, very well explained. The game quickly becomes addictive, and the difficulty level increases at just the right rate; there aren't so many easy levels that it gets boring after a week, and the difficulty increase from level to level is gradual rather than abrupt, making it challenging but not impossible.
