Default Eyelord from Secret Exit




Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up



Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up



Game website

And the soundtrack for your pleasure:
"A Waiting Chamber"
"The Lost Guide"

Eyelord is a combination of pop 'em up and heavy rock opera. The gameplay is remotely similar to the game with rolling marbles and a spitting frog, but absolutely without the frog, and with added over-the-top polish and audiovisual awesomeness.

As said before, the game is universal, with support for all devices from 3GS up, including retina iPads and iPhone5 screens. (And it rocks.)

And some screenshots:


The new powerup "Red Reign" in action.


Note my current nemesis in the bottom right corner. The Game Center mugshot will be used if the user has uploaded one. If not, then a skull is used.


He's not my nemesis any longer!
Also it's alright to go 'ooh' at the new pyro effects!

Wow! This actually looks good enough to make me want to try another marble popper game and that is saying something!

Much appreciated!

We played a bunch of marble poppers on touch devices, and frankly they all seemed to try to adapt the mouse-originated gameplay of the original into touch form. It seemed like the wrong approach, and so the biggest difference in Eyelord (aside from the presentation) is the core control mechanic. The one we implemented just seems to make much more sense.

The controls also lead to a rather different balance in gameplay, you'll find Eyelord a more fast-paced and elastic experience than what's usually common in the genre. There's a reason why we prefer to call this game a "pop 'em up" instead of a marble popper

Hmm, it's free?!

What's the catch? IAPs for more levels I guess?

Boosts, upgrades and other items via in-game currency that can also be acquired by playing. No paywalls of any kind.
