App description: BarrierGame is a unique engaging flow-inducing minimalistic intelligent-arcade game where you control two sliding doors of a large barrier so as to let the "good" squares through and keep the "bad" ones out.

for you to choose from as you prefer or need (in the "Briefing" section of the menu in the game), and changing the colors every once in a while is an enjoyable experience all by itself!

some of them fast and action-packed, some slightly calmer and more meditative. You can play them all through in the given order, from 1 to 31, or also directly select some specific level to start with.

Additionally, each level can be played in an "Endless" mode where you can either go for new records of how many "goods" you can let through at that level while keeping the "bads" out, or, alternatively, you can just focus on the process of playing without any numerical goals and enjoy the flow.

NB! Figuring out exactly how to play and what the various numbers are telling you is part of the game and part of the fun! The joy you will get from figuring it out is well worth the effort! Exploration and making discoveries are among the most satisfying human activities! (well, I'm a scientist :)

For the best experience, hold your iPhone or iPad with two hands and use your thumbs to control the doors.

taivo's comments:

I am the developer of the BarrierGame, which is "an engaging flow-inducing minimalistic intelligent-arcade game".

I think BarrierGame has quite a distinct look and feel and gameplay, as I have specifically tuned it to fit my own taste (to which most of the existing mobile games feel somehow slightly annoying for some reason or another), and, thus, it tends to differ in various small details from the typical mobile games. I hope there are sufficiently many other people, too, who will find such a slightly eccentric game enjoyable. :)

The website of the game is at barriergameapp.com

Here's the app info from iTunes:
