Imagine the Scale ($0.99) - From of one billion light years to the realm of the atom

Hi there,

herp games' new app is out!

It takes you on a fascinating journey through the relative size of things in our universe. You can fly from the dimension of one billion light years to the smallest atom.

Experience the proportions of things many orders of magnitude away from what we commonly experience.

Starting from the size of everyday objects like a coffee bean, you can zoom in to the smallest molecules of the atomic universe and compare the size of each single item. You can also take the different direction and zoom out to compare the size of stars and planets until you reach the end of the observable universe.

Game Impressions

Not really a game. BUT.

The second I saw the video, I knew what it was and HAD to buy it. I remember seeing this on a website version and wanted a way to download it... Now its on my iphone. Sick.

Talk about putting things in perspective.

I hope this does well, so to have some updates.

Are you the developer?

Thank you.

Yes I am the developer. And I also hope it does well, since the idea has a huge potential. There are many many interesting things that must make it into the app

Best .99 cents I ever spent on the app store! Not to mention one of the most unique, especially to those who can appreciate this.

Yeah, the possibilities are literally endless to what you can add. Maybe some electrons, quasars and whatevers smaller than the helium atom. More planets in our solar system.

Also a black background option so the cosmic items look even better.

But regardless, this just became one of my favorite apps.

I will also be writing a 5 star review for this on iTunes.

Maybe someone has some ideas which new objects should make it into the game?

If so, just post it here. It is important that there is an interesting & not so common fact or twist with the object.

Imaginary example (which would make a great fact if it were true):

Object: A Tree, Fact: Trees grow 10 ft per second under vacuum

I will try to integrate the new objects into the next version.
