Universe Sandbox Game Review

Universe Sandbox is an interactive space and gravity simulator, developed as proprietary software. Using Universe Sandbox, one can see the effects of gravity on objects in the universe and run scale simulations of our Solar System, various galaxies or other simulations, while at the same time interacting and maintaining control over gravity, time, and other objects in the universe (moons, planets, asteroids, comets, black holes, etc.).[1] The original Universe Sandbox is only available for Windows-based PCs, but the new version Universe Sandbox ² is on Windows, Mac, and GNU/Linux.[2] Universe Sandbox version 2.0 was released on May 2, 2010. Version 2.1 was released on Steam on Friday April 29, 2011. As of 2014, the developers are working on a new complete rewrite of Universe Sandbox, called Universe Sandbox ².
