*** Nominated for Best in Sound Design at Indie Prize
********************************************************

Atomic+ is a simple, fast-paced action game where you avoid bullets and survive for the longest time while collecting squares to achieve the highest score. The game features four different control modes (auto, manual, full, full+) with two different difficulties (normal, hardcore).

Inspired by Super Hexagon and Super Crate Box.

"...Atomic should be ported to smartphones and tablets because its perfect for it." Chris Priestman / Indie Statik

"...close enough to Hexagons hypnotic masterpiece to earn the comparison but with a precision of its own." Gnome / Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"A great twitchy arcade blast, Atomic+ strikes the perfect balance between accessibility and challenge" Harry Slater / PocketGamer

"The visuals are a delight in action, the soundtrack is amazing, and the game mechanic is simple, yet addictive and challenging." Christine Chan / AppAdvice

"Its mechanic, although simple, lends itself fittingly to providing a gameplay experience that I consider both addictive and fun to play." Arron Hirst / 148Apps

"Atomic+ is about reflexes and timing and learning to cope with the failure and unfairness that plagues this crazy world of ours." Evan Killham / Cult of Mac

"Atomic is a nice and relaxing time waster that offers a lot of challenge whilst not being too unforgiving." Alex Wilkinson / The Indie Game Magazine

I started searching for it on the App Store only to remember US has to wait till tonight

Here's the browser version if you wanted to get a feel for the gameplay:

And RockPaperShotgun had this awesome quote that perfect sums up the game or really any of these kinds of games

Atomic is an arcade, score attack challenge that becomes increasingly like a dance on the edge of a knife blade that is poised above a pit full of knife blades.

So playing the browser version, gameplay feels like a mix of DSY! (evading projectiles), Code Red (moving on a circular track while evading), and Catch-22 (collecting the icons reverses your direction). Nice minimalist controls, nice music, and may be a bit more forgiving than other games in the genre due to the fact that you have a damage bar that fills up over time, and decreases as you avoid further damage.

Odd, link didn't work on the iPad but works on iPhone. Anyway. There is one crucial thing wrong with this game: none of the control methods are intuitive.

It isn't just hold to expand, release to contract? On PC, all you do is use the Spacebar, it's really simple.
