Play Orbit Rescue

Orbit Rescue

Orbit Rescue is a new version of the original Orbit game that was launched by Bruce and Denise Morcombe on the national Day for Daniel in October 2013.

Whereas the original Orbit game was designed for use in schools and would be completed over a 5 to 10 week period, the new Orbit Rescue app can be completed in just a couple of hours by children at home.

The new app doesn’t require a login or a network connection, takes less time to play, and is easier to complete.

Orbit is available on the App Store for iPads, and Google Play for Android tablets.
