Hey guys,

I've been working on a game called Eyez for a few years. It was my MFA thesis project at the Interactive Media Division of the University of Southern California.

Eyez is a puzzle platformer that plays with the idea of "screen space". In Eyez the protagonist Mint has two abilities: the Blue Eye that lets you wrap the screen space, and the Red Eye that separates the screen space from the off-screen space. With these two unique mechanics there come a lot of interesting gameplay possibilities.

You can get an idea of the game from the gameplay video below:

Eyez was originally released on the Windows Phone Store in June 2013. The WP version of Eyez has been well received by many users from all over the world, and has been featured many times by Microsoft on the Windows Phone Store. I just ported it to iOS in late January this year.

Eyez can be downloaded via the link below, for free:

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know!

I have not downloaded it yet. No storage left.
This is such an interesting game mechanic, it's completely genius if it works as well as I hope.

Thanks for your reply and encouragement!

The game package might be a little too large, but I believe its gameplay experience is one of a kind. Please give it a try if you can squeeze out some storage on your phone!

Is this free with an IAP to unlock levels or does it have ads (perhaps with an IAP to disable them)? I guess I'm just trying to ask: Free? What's the catch?

It is free to download and you can play through the first 6 levels. After that an IAP is required to unlock the full version so you can enjoy the rest of the game. I guess it makes more sense to let people try out the game before they decide whether or not to pay for it.

BTW on iOS7 the game will crash on the store screen if you try to unlock the full version. This bug has been fixed in the new update, which hopefully will be available within the next few days.
