Ms. Particle-Man, a Higgs boson themed game

I made a little indie game inspired by particle physics and the search for the Higgs boson a few months ago. Yeah, it's old news, but in light of today's exciting historic announcement from CERN, I just had to share it again!

Ms. Particle-Man is a retro-style arcade game for iOS (universal). The goal is simple: Discover the Higgs boson. The player controls Ms. Particle-Man in his/her search for the Higgs across three different collider worlds. Each collider ends with a showdown against an elementary particle. The player collides with each boss particle to discover new worlds, abilities, and eventually possibly even the Higgs boson itself.

It looks like a lot of fun, beyond the obviously clever combination of Pac munching and science. Hope it gets attention!

A Higgs Boson themed game?? Very appropriate for Higgs Boson Day (not to be mistaken for the less significant American Independence Day =P)! I can't wait to play!
