G by Soma Games IS OUT!




Quote:
Explore the vast uncharted mystery of The Rain in this arcade-puzzler from Soma Games. In your role as sounding officer onboard Ptolemy Station you build and launch exploration rockets into increasingly challenging fields where Iceteroids, theophosphorus and quicksand clouds make your mission much more work than your employers led you to believe…

Gorgeous hand painted art, eerily atmospheric music and a deep, compelling storyline make G more than just a puzzle game. The first chapter in a three part series of iPhone games, G introduces you to a steampunk styled world where corporate intrigue and competing mercenaries all vie for their share of the unknown promise The Rain; blessing or curse, its arrival changes human history for ever…and you will play a part.

Web Reviews:
“Art:9, Sound:9, Fun:9, Gameplay:10. Idea, story, graphic arts and sound. In all four points G has succeeded.” – PressHome.de
"G is an excellent game." - TouchMy Apps.com
“Displaying potent mixes of great voice over work, artwork like no other, and an attention to detail that is to be applauded; we really, really need to pay attention to Soma Games.” – AppGamer.Net

I was about to say so myself. I don't know if I will be TOFTTing this time. I haven't seen anything to sell me on this yet. Anyone who does get this, lemme know cause I am on the fence.

Looks really cool, but I don't know anything about the gameplay. I'll wait for some impressions.

Also just FYI searching for "G" doesn't give you the game if you're using the iPhone App Store but "soma games" does.

Is the objective of the game just finding new objects in space?
