Title: Catch a Falling Star
Genre: Casual, Indie
Back To Basics Gaming
Release Date: 30 Mar, 2016
As the title implies you'll be have to catch falling stars while avoiding ice chunks\/ hazards using one of several unlockable baskets.
It's a pretty casual game that can provide some entertainment but its randomness and lack of variety can drag it down.
-while simple the gameplay is ok and gets quite challenging as time goes and stars speed up
-leaderboards give a reason to chase high scores
-there's a couple themes and several different basket designs to unlock
-each session is quite lengthy (20 to 30 minutes) and this might be a problem if you're looking for a quick game
-I'm not personally fond of purchasable one-use powerups
-it's a shame each theme only has one track, hearing it on loop makes the music boring eventually
-star\/ ice spawning can feel unfair at times and push you into unwinnable situations
-the simple gameplay gets repetitive quite fast
My overall reaction to the game was, well, lukewarm: the first few matches are pretty fun but after an hour or so two problems come to light. Firstly the gameplay itself is quite repetitive as its simplicity prevents it from having much depth: this is made somewhat worse by the first five minutes of each match, where stars fall down in a slow, bland fashion. Secondly, well, sometimes the star spawning will serve you with stars that are basically unreachable or put you into lose\/ lose situations: examples are stars spawning on complete opposite sides (sometimes 2-3 times in a row) or situationsa where you'll have to get an ice chunk to reach a star (making you slower and thus ultimately unable to get it).
The lose-lose situations might be lessened if you decide to use your hard-earned currency to buy powerups rather than wait for them to fall from the sky. It's possible that activating a "basked speed up" bonus at the right time'd make certain star spawns possible but I question the need for such a system to be there when things'd easily be solved by simply changing the game mechanics a tad.
Despite my complaints Catch a Falling Star is still an ok, albeit quickly forgettable, game if you're a fan of the genre and you can expect to enjoy it for a few hours before it gets tedious: for such a low price it's decent enough to get a thumbs up.. Cute game, Good time waster. The music is pretty nice and good for listening. \ud83c\udf20\ud83c\udf20\ud83c\udf20\ud83c\udf20. Catch a Falling Star describes itself as "casual and relaxing," and it's definitely telling the truth. As an autistic person with anxiety, I'm always on the look out for games I can play when I'm stressed out but don't want to be overstimulated. CaFS is a perfect fit!
The game is endearingly simple: move your basket to catch falling stars and empty it at the edge of the screen when it's full. Blocks of ice and various status altering icons (which do things like increase the amount of ice, or slow down the stars' descent), as well as the occasional burst of wind, complicate this simple task, but they're not frustrating to navigate and instead keep the game from going stale. Collect coins to purchase in-game tweaks like more space in your basket, or spend them on cosmetic changes like basket and background design.
The background music is soothing but isn't going to put you to sleep, and the sound effects are cute without being super sugary. I'm especially in love with the art style used for the backgrounds, which are simple but distinctly pretty, and the different basket designs. Looking forward to catching things in a coffee pot, eventually. :)
I do agree with other reviews stating it doesn't have immediate replay value for most people because it's so simplistic, but for a buck, even a handful of plays is more than worth the price.. Developed by: Alister Software

10 \/ 10 - A fun and relaxing game.. Most adorable game ever. Simple and easy to play.. This game is a great time killer and feels a lot like a mobile game without the ads and microtransactions. It is insanely cheap in the Alister Software Bundle for 12 cents and I would highly reccommend you get it. It is also a good game to get 100% achievement completion as none of the achievements are too hard.. Catch a Falling Star is a casual game where the objective is to catch falling stars (huh sounds like the title).
Overall, this game is very simplistic, but that is good. It is most definitly a casual game that you can play when you are bored, in class, or just want something slower and nice. The graphics of the game are simple, but they work with the type of game this is. The music also matches the game. There is nothing much bad to say about this game really, considering the purpose of this game and how cheap it is (its only $1).
Overall, I would recommend this game as a casual game to play when you have nothing else to do. Kind of like some iPhone time killers, except this is actually kind of relaxing. The price tag is low, there are steam achievements, and the game has steam trading cards.
