App description: Epic Zen Garden

Epic Zen Garden is a beautiful graphical environment showcasing the power of iOS 8, developed by Epic Games with Unreal Engine 4. Tap to navigate this interactive oasis brimming unmatched detail on mobile. Swipe the Sakura tree to make thousands of cherry blossoms swirl in the air, graze the koi pond to summon leagues of fish, and rake the sand with your finger to create subtle designs. Touch the well to bring throngs of butterflies out of hiding. Access Unreal Engine 4 at www.unrealengine.com to build your own games and apps!

Unreal Engine 4. Use Unreal Engine 4 to realize your creative vision and stand out from the crowd.
Metal API. Unreal Engine 4 is the first game engine to release support for Metal API.
Stunning visuals. Solid 30fps; 1440x1080 resolution; 4x MSAA; 3,500 butterflies equal roughly 4,000 draw calls, with falling petals at 5,000 particles (not draw calls); as demonstrated in Apples WWDC 2014 keynote.

Don`t have to. In the past some of those Tech Demo were build so that they wouldn`t run on older Device even they could if you would change one line of Code.

Looks great, but I'll stick with Epic Citadel and dreams of them actually using that world and gameplay for a game.

Not the greatesr tech demo out there... The demo feels lifeless it's missing a lot...don't get me wrong it looks great but it could use a lot more detail and more room. You also can't walk around your forced to get around by tapping on points to get around and it feels very limited. This could of been much better but it feels rushed . Feels like a wast of space on my phone. Could of done so much better.

Pretty lousy small environments and restricted movements on a 2014 iphone6 it lqcks severly compared to Epic citadel in which you could actually mive around but wasn't anything special either.People don't waste your time here.
