And the Sky Full of Stars is a competition entry by Jari Komppa, combining elements from both Katamari Damacy and Fumito Ueda's Ico. Shadowy figures are attempting to destroy your town, but fortunately you have the ability to pluck stars from the sky and use them to smash these evil creatures.

To collect stars, just move your mouse cursor over these celestial bodies and they will follow you obediently. Then it's just a matter of hurling them towards the shadows to dissolve them and save your fellow townsmen. Sounds crazy although it is rather fun to play.

You guys use the word ''interesting'' too much in reviews:

''And the Sky Full of Stars is an interesting competition entry...''

''Killer Worm is an interesting effort...''

''Gikoparo 5 is an interesting horizontal-scrolling shooter...''

''Particulation is an interesting effort by Diffusion Studios...''

I was thinking the exact same thing when I was reading that.

Maybe they are all just interesting? :)

Reaches for the thesaurus..

My father often expresses the dictum, "whenever someone says something is 'interesting,' they usually mean 'a pain in the ass.'"

What a great title for a game, reminds of me a few Sci-fi book titles.

appearances of the offending word have been removed from recent reviews.

furthermore, the word 'interesting' will be banned from IG and won't be featured in future posts. :)
