FOTONICA (by Santa Ragione)
Featured in "App Store: Best of 2014" for iPhone.
TOUCH ARCADE - 5/5 "Masterfully crafted"
POCKET GAMER - 8/10 "You've experienced nothing like FOTONICA"
Ever wondered what running at 140mph feels like? FOTONICA is a first-person game about the thrill of speed and traveling flawlessly through complex environments.
One-handed controls: hold your finger down to run, release to jump, hold in mid-air to dive and land.
FOTONICA is simple, but is not easy: it follows a tradition of arcade games that are easy to pick up and almost impossible to master. A multi-layered level design across eight different tracks, together with a procedural endless mode make for a game that is incredibly deep. Think you can outrun your friends? Try the split-screen versus challenges.
The visuals are a treat for the nostalgic player but also for those hungry for new aesthetics. Every pixel is drawn to convey the maximum sense of speed, an exhilarating journey through light and void.
