I'm confused as to what the game even is (and I did read the description). Anyone know what the gameplay is like?

Thanks mrbiggles. Makes more sense now. I guess it's a two finger line controlling game where if you lift a finger and it pauses... and sometimes a tapping circles game. Music seems pretty trippy and it is Double Fine... I may just grab this.

EDIT: Bought. Guess I'll try it out later.

Yup. It's a high-score chasing game similar to Super Hexagon and Expander, but the similarities end there.

Here, you control a Beam which you create between your fingers (two-touch), and you need to use the beam to gather orange orbs while avoiding the red bolts. There are some sequences which require tapping too which give the game some gameplay variety.

Add neon-trippy visuals and fantastic EDM, and you have a game worth $3. I dont know why this didnt get more exposure, but i got it day-one and really enjoyed it.

Now that it's a buck, no reason not to get it if you like high-score games or something totally unique and innovative.
