Product Description

"The character designs all ooze charm and get helped along by a too-good-to-be-true orchestral soundtrack. However, underneath all of the audiovisual appeal is a challenging gameplay arc." -- Kotaku

"Paper Galaxy Can be Your ... Addictive Game of the New Year, Too" -- Wired Geekdad

"Colourful and hugely creative, the paper-craft galaxy in which Luna (the moon) inhabits is both stylish and charming, and the play premise simultaneously simple and utterly addictive..." 9.5 / 10 -- Android Life

"The game play is easy to understand and it’s a perfect tool to while away your time or if you’re searching for one of those apps that will have you glued to your device for hours!" 5/5 -- applatter.com

"I save the 5 star rating for games that are near perfection in morality and design. Paper Galaxy meets that standard. Good job Liquid Entertainment." 5/5 -- cocgblog.com

"The well-done visuals, amusing sound effects, and addictive gameplay make this one challenging for all ages." -- appadvice.com

"So. Adorably. Cute... Paper Galaxy is incredibly charming and creative, and despite being a good old fashioned arcade game at heart, it ends up being quite a relaxing experience." -- jayisgames.com

"between the cute atmosphere and several slight bonuses in game play, this is certainly one of the best of its kind." -- touchmyapps.com

"Paper Galaxy is a great diversion and worth the price." -- ikidapps.com

"I could play Paper Galaxy all day, BECAUSE I ALREADY AM!" -- CGR Undertow

LITTLE MOON, BIG GALAXY!

What happens when the moon gets lost, catches a cold, and runs into the cranky Crab Nebula? A family-friendly and fun-filled chase through a galaxy of adorable planetary oddballs ensues! As Luna, you sneeze from orbit to orbit on your way back to Mother Earth. Along the way, you’ll make new friends, collect stars, and have more than a few close encounters with hot-headed Suns and mysterious Black Holes!

A cross between an endless runner and a launch game, Paper Galaxy is easy-to-learn and offers hours of fun and challenge for cosmic explorers of all skill levels. With its unique and addictive ‘one tap’ gameplay, an unforgettable cast of characters, and a charming soundtrack, you’ll be over the moon with Paper Galaxy!

A NOTE ABOUT PRIVACY: We (Liquid Entertainment) are a small independent game studio located in Pasadena, California. Paper Galaxy began as a labor of love in our spare time. Our goals for making this game were simple: make a game that we could play with our own kids and have fun doing so, make the game completely non-violent, include purely optional in-app purchasing, and tell a simple story of finding your way back home within a whimsical and charming universe.

Some users have voiced concerns about the app’s permissions, and in particular the "GET_TASKS" permission.

We originally implemented the "GET_TASKS" permission for use with our ‘Rate this App’ popup. Paper Galaxy does not now, and has never, utilized this permission to collect private data or snapshots of current tasks.

The only user data we collect is aggregate counts of game-related events: how many times did a particular upgrade get purchased, how many times did players complete the game, and so forth. We use this information solely to improve the experience in subsequent updates.

To eliminate any possible concerns regarding the "GET_TASKS" permission, we have uploaded a new build that has removed that permission.

Our privacy policy can be read in its entirety here:

We are proud to have been featured or positively reviewed by such trusted sites as Wired.com’s GeekDad, Kotaku, the Coalition of Christian Gamers, PadGadget.com, The iPhone Mom, JayIsGames.com, Applatter.com, AppAdvice.com, DroidGamers.com, AndroidPolice, LifeofAndroid.com, and many others. Liquid Entertainment remains committed to responsible game development and providing first class, family-friendly entertainment through Paper Galaxy.

When I first opened the game (and it forced portrait mode), I noticed the Privacy button. Clicking it opened my browser to the company's privacy page. Lo and behold, in the middle, there is a link to Flurry Analytics.

Flurry Analytics gathers information about YOUR device, and is one of those companies you don't want snooping on your phone or anything else you own.

Not only that, the game collects information about what other apps you are using or have recently used and sends that information back to the developer (and Flurry Analytics).

By the way, just to give you a sense of why you should be concerned about Flurry, read this front-page blurb, from the Director of analytics at Flurry, who wrote in her blog post:
"Flurry now measures apps used on more than 1 billion smartphones and tablets each month. As connected devices reach critical mass, marketers are more seriously incorporating mobile into the marketing mix. But there are pros and cons. While the collective size of the mobile audience is rivaling that of TV and other media, it still requires aggregating the audiences of many apps to reach what can be reached through a few TV programs. That said, the numbers are likely closer than you think. Additionally, mobile offers unique ways to engage consumers given its "always on, always present" characteristics."

I recommend reading the entire article on flurry.com's site; you will find it illuminating, if not frightening.

Regarding the game, the premise is that you have to chase a butterfly to the top of the screen while collecting stars and avoiding the monster at the bottom.

1.0 out of 5 stars Access and snapshot of recent tasks? May 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Why on earth would an app suvh ad this need access to a thumbnail of my running or recently run tasks? I'm sorry, with a permission like that I would give it 0 stars if I could.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shameful Fake Reviews! May 4, 2013
By hackel
Verified Purchase
I got this app only because I wanted to write a review to counter all of the disgraceful, fake 5-star reviews posted by Liquid Entertainment and their accomplices. This is the kind of B.S. that ruins the App Store for everyone. Also, why should I give Liquid Entertainment access to my list of running tasks? They don't need this. The idea of paying Liquid Entertainment for extra stars in this game is absurd. I would highly suggest avoiding this game any other Liquid Entertainment apps!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't install May 4, 2013
If you just take a moment to look at the permissions that the app ask for you to approve of you'd notice that this app is not safe and is pretty much just malware. I'm certain all the good reviews were done by the company and friends of the company which would be extreamly bias and unaware of how to properly review apps. I'm pretty sure by the end of the day every one who downloads it not knowing what it is (since it's free today) will unistall and give it a bad rating upon using it. Stay away from this until they change permissions. It's a shame because by the time they fix it (if they fix it) it won't be free anymore. I don't think the company is bad people but I still don't trust apps that ask for more power than they need to opperate properly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Data Mining - Steer Clear! May 4, 2013

No game needs to collecting this type of data and running in the background! With our privacy levels decreasing on a regular basis, this is an unacceptable addition to the mix!

"Get information about the currently or recently running tasks: a thumbnail representation of the tasks, what activities are running in it, etc"

Spyware is spyware and does not belong in a game/app that the seller is charging the end user a fee to own. I can somewhat understand greedy programmers putting sypware in free games, but once you start charging a fee for a game/app, all spyware should be removed. Ratings will suffer for those greedy programmers who insist on putting sypware in paid games/apps. Fair warning!!!
