Well I would suck @ Eye Vs. Eye, Seeing as how I'm color blind!
But seems like a cool concept!... Welcome to the forums, always good to see a new face...

Marrying the two things most dear to me: Type and Gaming.

Well done indeed.

Glad to hear you like the concept for KERN. I am the other half of the FORMation development team, and we're excited to get feedback on these new quick Apps. We just added some game play videos which you can see at our website.
The videos are also on Vimeo here:

We'll appreciate any feedback!

KERN: Is the music used in the video actually in the game? That would fit perfectly.

After seeing the video i have to say that i'm intrigued to buy this one. The look is A+ and gameplay itself looks quite promising too. Nothing i could play all day i think, but for some quick sessions this might be perfect.

Are there global leaderboards?

Fed up with all the casual games on the iDevice and in need of a new twist to the RPG genre? You can have an influence on the game with your ideas! For more info have a look at: Thread on TA / The Dev's Blog

KERN Music

The music from the demo video is not in the game - but is by my co-developer: Rustcycle. It is from his forthcoming album (site). He has a new game coming out that does feature his music: NANO 2.0 - which you can see on his site as well! Both KERN & EYE vs. EYE are part of our Graphic-Designer Game Series, and a future release will feature the Rustcycle music more prominently.

We are using these Apps to better understand the wants and needs of players, and the online Leaderboard is definitely a feature we plan to add in the future. We really appreciate the feedback!

@FORMation: Old thread is old, but I keep wondering what the hell happened to Hexxis? It's one of my most wanted titles. Please don't say it's dead.
