Game or sim?
Is this just a simulator where you choose some variables and sliders, to see what might happen in some given circumstances?

Or is this a game, with win/lose situations?

Create and destroy on a scale you've never imagined with the ultimate space simulator. Harness the power to create black holes, collide galaxies, and manipulate gravity with just a few clicks. Inspired by the software astronomers use to unlock the mysteries of our universe, never before has astronomy been so interactive or so much fun.

Genre: Casual, Indie, Simulation
Release Date: 29 Apr 2011

Took 10 seconds to find that on the store page.

Yeah, I hate how some people just leap at the chance to point out someone elses percieved failure, just to make themselves seem more intelligent and feel better about themselves.

There's totally no win or lose situations for this game, it's as pure a simulation as you can get. Personally that's not my thing which is why I haven't bought it for my account but my roomate seems to enjoy messing around with it... It's kinda cool how if you make one tiny little change to the galaxy the entire thing just kinda falls apart eventually.

Nobody has really answered the question so far:

OP, it's mostly a simulation software. The only thing 'gamey' about it is the Achievements. If you care about those, then you could consider the goals they provide as a bit like a game, but this is really just a simulation.

You win if you have a good time... :)

As others have shared, it's more simulation than game.

Dr.Tran got the question spot-on. Thanks for your reply. Having fun so far :)

Every simulation has the potential for games based on it. With USB I can think of a number of 'hot-seat' and public-challenge games. "Use this file of 3 stars, add as many stable trans-orbital planets as you can and post your start and end-state files. Winner will receive a full foil trading card set." A hot-seat game could involve sling-shotting asteroids at targets or taking turns adding objects to the creation of a solar system; cause a collision and you're out.

just a simulation ( quite a fun one i might add ).
You don't win/lose, but you can have lots of fun with it

It's sort of odd. You can have fun, but it is not a game. More of an engine.

It's a sandbox and a sim. It is up to you to make the fun, the rules and you decide when it is over, if at all.
