Galaxy Physics in your pocket!
Galaxy Collider simulates the universe in your pocket. So brace yourself for the collision of the Milky Way with the Andromeda Galaxy!
Galaxy Collider simulates the physics of interacting galaxies by computing the gravitational forces between the stars and the heavy galaxy centers.
Galaxy collider features a high performance particle engine that can interactively visualize spectacular galaxy interactions. It uses OpenGL point sprites for rendering thousands of high-quality stars at high frame rates.
The parameters of the simulation, such as the number of galaxies and stars, masses, etc. can be changed interactively to explore the infinite number of possible interactions between the galaxies.
Galaxy collider uses the build-in accelerometer of IPhone or IPod touch to change viewpoints add real external forces to the simulation.

Releasing new versions every about 1 year, on average.
- Added iPhone X support.
- iOS8 compatibility
- iPhone 5 support
Added spiral galaxies.
Added high resolution rendering support for iPhone 4
Added support for the IPhone 3G S compass. So you can now freely move the IPhone around the colliding galaxies.
Added support for camera translation using three finger drag. Simulation is paused using a four finger tap.
