In Satellina, patterns of green, yellow, and red particles move around the screen in sync with a melodic synthpop soundtrack. The objective is deceptively simple: drag your finger to collect only the green particles without bumping into yellow or red. When you’ve cleared all the green particles, yellow particles turn green and red particles turn yellow. Clear them all to complete the level — but don’t bump the wrong color, or you’ll have to start over!

With 50 hypnotic levels, a challenging but rewarding (and never punitive) difficulty curve, and a timed structure perfect for speedrunning, Satellina is a minimalist game that sucks you in. While the constant motion and running timer provide challenge and tension, the particles follow repeating routes, so success relies as much on pattern recognition and puzzle solving as it does on quick reflexes. Satellina includes an alternate color palette to accommodate players with red/green colorblindness.
