Your rating: None Average: 2.5 (6 votes)


You play as the character Sol who has just started out his life amoung the stars. It is your job to guide Sol on his path and help him find the nutrition he needs to survive and grow into a larger star.

You can direct Sol's Solar Flair to help him obtain nutrition by use of the Microsoft Xbox 360 Controler. This controler can also move Sol around the galexy to eat the nutrition on his own with out need for the solar flair. However, watch out some of the nutrition will escape Sol's mass.

Good luck and may the power of the stars guid you.
