As with most download-only games, Back to Earth 2 is developed to run on just about any machine. Visually, the game has a clean look that is loaded with special effects. The overall feel of the entire package is more cartoony than realistic, but this doesnít hurt the game. Backgrounds are static with scrolling star fields (and other moving objects), setting the feeling of movement. All of the ships and asteroids are modeled nicely and show off the appropriate shine effects when needed. After engaging your shipís time dilation ability, the screen zooms into the action a little closer while a blur/bloom effect takes effect.
Sound effects are appropriate, while the music leaves something to be desired. This isnít too much of a problem if youíre playing in an office (where you would have the sound turned down anyway). Only two or three tunes are present throughout the entire game and tend to wear on your nerves after the third or fourth rotation.
