Do you think you're able to follow this simple rule even if you would have to control a continuously rotating spinship through a colorful world full of narrow areas, moving obstacles, and many other fascinating game elements?

Watch the official trailer:

##### S T O R Y #####

In a strange world full of colorful bands you have to help Dusty to find his family. He always feared that the day will come when an act of nature beyond control will threaten the world known to him. At night, when everyone was asleep, Dusty was working on his spacy spinship. Many days had passed until his masterpiece was almost perfect. One night in his garage he heard a weird buzzing sound growing louder and louder followed by a strong undertow. Everything started moving upwards and at the very last moment Dusty managed to enter the control center of his spinship before he was torn away...

Sounds very similar to cyro, which is a great game. Video won't load for me yet.

I loved cyro so if this is similar I'll probably end up picking it up.

kuru kuru kururin (this looks to be based on that) was very good on the GBA so this should be good too.

Thank you very much for the discussion so far. You as a community are very important to us! Therefore, we have taken your comments seriously and just released an update. The major changes in here are a more colorful atmosphere, the correction of some typos, and an overall smaller app size.

Glad its got tilt or touch controls. I'll get this later, looks impressive
Thanks for the compliment and the note on "mysterious". After we had released the update, we have also rerendered the launch trailer with the overall new look (and with the corrected spelling ):

We have tuned the colors and especially the grey-ish backgrounds, which now also provide a number of different patterns. Thanks for your comments as this really contributes to the overall atmosphere in the game! We have also created new screenshots and hope that you are now satisfied with these :

We are always interested in your opinion and we hope to have created a game that brings you many hours of game fun (although it's paid only once)!

Hi, this is Lars from Incodra. Due to many requests, we have published a lite version of "Why Does It Spin?". You can test the gameplay in 4 of 40 colorful maps and you'll get to know knots & springs.

The full version features many more game elements and concepts such as moving obstacles , pillows , rotors , switches & doors , conveyor belts with spikeys & attracktors , lasers , and even even an IQ-test close to the end . You get everything without IAP! And there is even more: If you handle all the challenges, you will be prepared to race against the ghosts of the developers in the time attack mode !

Have fun with YDIS!
