Intentionally difficult, a lack of subtlety when it come to conveying the game's complexities means that, though Last Horizon has much promise and charm, it's ultimately too frustrating an experience to really deliver. An update or two to streamline the gameplay, however, may yet save it from complete obliteration.
Last Horizon is a beautifully minimalist game of exploration and survival amidst the planets. It’s simple enough to be easily pick-up-and-play, but with enough challenge that a brief run still feels satisfying. The drifting universe and ambient soundtrack are properly relaxing, while trying to land on a planet for desperately-needed fuel while it slowly rotates beneath you and you try not to drift into the ocean or a mountain makes for a nicely tense moment of piloting.
