PATHZ - A superb combination of Charm & Challenge

Hello TA's,
I'm Roy Sadaka, an independent developer under the name POM.



My upcoming game PATHZ is right around the corner, hoping for a late weekend release (finger crossed), I've decided ill give Touch Arcade an exclusive peek at it!

EDIT: Sorry for the delay in releasing PATHZ, the game will be available in Wednesday!



PATHZ!
A superb combination of charm & challenge.
Pathz is an immersive puzzle game that incorporates
unique storytelling and ambient music to create
a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Best over a hundred roads to uncover the story of the path - from the laughably simple to the satisfyingly complex.
Overcome unique obstacles on your travels: Falling tiles, moving floors, shifting terrain and many others.
Sit back and unwind to the tranquil Classic theme, or spice things up with the funky and upbeat Juicy theme.

PATHZ will be available for both iOS and Android.
Looking forward to your feedback!
Roy.

The art is appealing and the game play looks interesting, although I can't tell how to play from the video. I hope the game is Universal and premium.

Thank you for your reply.
PATHZ is universal, it will be available to all iDevices and all Android devices including tablets.
The graphics are all vector rendered so all the elements are crisp and located relatively to the screen dimensions with a smart algorithm,
(well.. at least i think its smart )
that makes the gaming experience to be at its best across all screen sizes.
The pricing model is "Free to Play(120 levels) with an advertisement at the end of every level from level 21 and up + Premium Unlock"
While the premium unlock removes all ads, and unlocks a new Juicy Theme.
All future updates will be opened to those who unlock, that includes new levels, themes or any other content.

On a side note, I've finished development about 6 weeks ago, and while beta testers were testing PATHZ, I've created 30 new levels that introduces 2 new game mechanics, those levels will be in the first update after testing, which will be quite soon.
Hope you’ll like it.
Roy.

Yes, PATHZ features a calm ambient music, with 4 different themes:
Flutes
Piano
Guitar
Deep Space
+ Juicy music for the unlockable Juicy Theme

You can,at any point, choose the music theme that fits your mood.
(default is “Automatic” that chooses one for you).

Playing PATHZ is almost like a music therapy, the music in the background, combined with the dynamic sound effects you create when solving the puzzles, and the unique storytelling throughout the levels, gives a great relaxing experience.

Thanks for the reply. I love those zen like music especially in games like this and you are right about much like a music therapy. Best experience with headphones on.

I had the pleasure to test this game, and i can honestly say i've enjoyed every bit of it!
The sneak peek shown here is really just a "peek", most notable about pathz would be the attention to making the levels different, each level is literally a new puzzle to figure out, and has its own twist, also those sentences at the top are like little clues to solve the puzzles, but in a poetic way, which shows how much thought the dev invested into building the levels, kudos!
I believe this game is gonna do well on the store, best of luck
