"Recommend to gamers that want something new for a genre full of same ole same ole." -NintendoGeneration
"I haven't seen graphics like these on the iPhone yet. Combined with the trance music, it is really mesmerizing." -CaptainShatner
"Whole family enjoying the game, from an eight year old (scored 92,000 on first try) to grandparents." -Hondera
"Not only are these some of the best graphics in the store...but this game has a very, very high replay value." -Sashicon


Entranced offers a new kind of play: an entirely new design lets musical cues move anywhere in the 3D world.

Enter the luminous worlds hidden in the sound of music!

In these Songworlds, sounds made by different instruments form unique shapes, called Glyphs. Glyphs fly in mesmerizing formations gathering energy from the Songworld.

As each Glyph zooms around the world, the Halo surrounding it gradually collapses, signaling that it's almost time to touch. Touch it during the flash and the Glyph blooms into a beautiful splash of color and energy! Inside every Glyph another vision awaits you.

Some Glyphs appear together in Patterns. Touch the Patterns in sequence to release even more energy and beautiful visuals. Together the visuals combine to form a lightshow, an artwork you reveal and create.

Tracers are Glyphs that are created from special parts of the music. Watch for Glyphs that have tails like a comet. Tracers add extra challenge, so they release the most energy of all. Explore the hidden beauty in the music.

Songworlds can be revisited any time, so be as playful as you want!

... stay tuned for more tracks!


Put on your headphones to hear the most subtle sounds!

Sounds made by different instruments form unique Glyph shapes. Glyphs represent notes from any instrument in a song, not just the rhythm section, so listen well! Touch just after the Halo meets the Glyph's edges, when the Glyph expands and flashes in time with the music.

Patterns represent a string of notes from the same instrument; all of the glyphs in that pattern will look and move alike. The first one to enter is the first you tap.

Tracers represent long musical events like smooth vocal melodies. Touch a Tracer and keep pressing to follow it across the screen. Each Songworld generates its own style of Tracer. Once you learn the flight path of each, you'll become a master.

As you progress in the Songworld, you'll explore almost all of the different instruments that make up the music and switch from one to another frequently. Keep in mind that some instruments happen between drum beats. You'll catch the more subtle sounds if you let your mind expand, listen carefully, and watch glyphs flow.

If you fall behind, just relax and watch for a while, or go after only the Glyphs that seem obvious to you. If you miss a glyph and hit the wrong spot, you'll see a red ring where you touched and lose a bit of energy. No worries!

I'm definitely interested. Plus, if Dave from Austin endorses it, it's gotta be good.

I would however, like to see a video first. Hopefully one surfaces soon.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.
