12 Orbits (Review)

header (22)


12 orbits is the only local multiplayer game for 2-12 people at once, no matter what you play on. If you can read this, be it on a PC, a laptop or even a tablet, you probably have everything you need. Additional controllers are supported, but not required unless you prefer to have a little more elbow room.

The game can be set up in seconds, even for 12 players at once. Rounds take about 5 minutes each. 12 orbits is friendly, competitive and a little chaotic. It is simple enough to quickly teach a group how to play it, but varied and deep enough to keep them entertained for a long time.

You can choose from 4 game modes, two of them for teams, with each one focused on a different playstyle. All of them adjust to any number of players from 2 – 12, so you can start small and add players as they come along.


Fun game to play but you need to play it with friends. This game is a high reaction party game where you need to hit some balls. I would like to see a (online) Multiplayer mode instead of the multiplayer mode where you can play with up to 12 friends at one keyboard.

+ Fun party game
+ Multiple game modes
+ Minimalistic design but a good working game
+ Fun to play with friends

– Quite repetitive
– Single player is not fun after a while
– pretty hard game to play (even though you only press one button)
– No online multiplayer

5.5/10 Fun little game but only when you play it with friends. Single player mode gets quite repetitive after a couple of tries. Quite a cool idea but just to small for a full game. Good thing is that there are three different types of gamemodes which are pretty fun! I bought this game for €0.49 cents but I wouldn’t recommend it to buy at its full price.
