App of the Day: A Long Way Home

Your aim is to somehow get your drifting astronaut home from the outer reaches of space in this peaceful little puzzler.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

Poor little astronaut. His or her ship has exploded 100 light years from Earth, and the only way to get home is to open portals one light-year closer. Launching from rotating meteor to rotating meteor, you must collect the dark matter that powers up the portals. It's a little fiddly, getting juuuuuuust the right launch angle to land on tiny asteroids; yet there's something so very peaceful about it, gently moving through the vastness of space; and the little astronaut standing on those little islands of rock is very Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
