Omium - New 2 player game from NimbleBit


Youtube link | Pop Up


Omium is a 2 player shoot em up. The 2 players literally face each other as one player controls the ship and shoots at the Bad Guys falling down the screen. The other player is controlling where the Bad Guys are going, how big they are, and how fast they are moving.

There are 3 game modes:

Dodge - The Bad Guys win when one of them touches the ship. The ship can shoot Bad Guys to make them smaller until they pop out of existence.

Juggle - The Bad Guys win when one of them reaches the bottom of the screen or touches the ship. The ship must constantly shoot the Bad Guys into the air to make sure they don't reach the bottom!

Infinite - Similar to Dodge except that the Bad Guys wrap around to the top of the screen once they reach the bottom. The ship has better ammo in this mode that destroys the Bad Guys faster but this ammo costs more so make sure to save it up.

Omium has been submitted to the app store and should be available very soon!

Thanks for watching!

I'm not gonna lie, this looks like one of the coolest multiplayer games for the ipad and I will be purchasing this immediately upon release.

I wants it. BAD. Any chance of Omium coming to the iPhone?

OMG. Double Rainbow!

Can't wait to get this. Then when my wife asks me to put the iPad away to spend time with her I can just show her Omium and we can play together.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.

I don't think it would work on the iPhone. The screen is just too small. I designed this game with the bigger screen of the iPad in mind.

I had a chance to see this game in person last week. It looks really fun. It's nice to see a unique two player mode.
