Welcome to this week’s installment of F2P Friday, where we highlight our favorite Free-2-Play games. The video game market is oversaturated, and sometimes, hidden gems fall through the cracks. This is where we dig for you and feature a new F2P game we know you will enjoy every week. Let’s dive in. 

Sputnika Game

Meet your newest little friend, Sputnik, a spunky planet with big dreams. Sputnika Game is a cosmic twist on a Suika-style game with a space theme and orbital gravity. Help Sputnik on its journey to become the greatest star in the solar system — the Sun.

The Basics

Let’s get down to the basics. Sputnika Game is a matching puzzle game that focuses on a match-making mechanic from developer egunan. The gameplay is easy to pick up and hard to stop as you work to understand the way the orbital gravity affects each planet you launch.

While there is an element of randomization and luck, learning to use the gravitational curve strategically will take some practice. The ability to target the other side of the planets adds an additional layer of strategy and depth to set it apart from other Suika-style games.

Why Should I Play?

Why should you play Sputnika Game? If you are a fan of puzzle games and clever concepts, then Sputnika Game will pull you right in. I enjoyed the little interactions you can catch the planets exchanging; their personalities remind me of an old mobile game called Chuzzle. The skill element helps balance the randomization, and the gravity mechanic extends the ability to master this deceptively simple game.
