*****

It is the first audio-only game for iPhone and iPod Touch.

Aurifi combines the two things the iPhone and iPod Touch do best - music and organic interaction.

What is an Audio Game?

You can play Aurifi with your eyes closed, this is a 100% sonic experience.

In video games, players interact with graphics, moving them, aligning them, and reacting to them. In the Aurifi Audio Game, players interact with sound in very much the same way. Sounds different? It is!

Aurifi is an ever-changing sonic landscape that is breathtaking. At the same time it invites you to react, control, fine-tune, identify and dial yourself into your surroundings. The bespoke musical elements are designed to help you feel moods, emotions and progression.

Aurifi was developed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch platforms, to make best use of the devices methods of interaction. Shake, slide and tilt to control the sounds and complete the challenges, and also contribute to the sound.

About the Audio

Video Game makers pour loads of time and effort into making the visual appearance of games spectacular - we have done the same for the audio in Aurifi. Each sound element has been carefully crafted to provide you with a luscious experience that sounds incredible.

You need to wear earphones or headphones to play. Once you are plugged in to Aurifi, you will realise that the game environment is massive - you interact with sounds in a 3D audio environment with intense depth. We have designed Aurifi to break outside of the device, and get away from the limitations of that small screen.

You know that rush that you get when a big beat or bass-line come in on your favourite records? THAT is the reward in Aurifi - as you pass each micro-challenge, you hear another layer of the music, and they are designed to sound great.

A staggering number of audio samples have been written to work with each other. This means we can mix-up the experience, so you very rarely hear the same music twice. No pre-defined musical path here - weve created an entirely new audio game engine to vary the audio experience each time you play.

Like any iPhone or iPod Touch experience, the quality of audio experience can be enhanced by the use of excellent earphones or headphones.

If all this sounds great, but you want to hear it before you buy, go to aurifi.com to listen to the audio demo. Make sure you come back!

Allow yourself to fall in love with Aurifi.

Aurifi has been created for iPhone and iPod Touch by an award-winning team of concept designers, developers, musicians, sound designers and engineers.

Not the first audio-only game. There was one quite a while back -- late '08 or early '09 perhaps -- where you had to match one tone to another steady tone by tilting your device around to change the pitch. I can't recall the name and it wasn't terribly exciting, but it was unique at least.

Looks, or rather sounds, incredibly intriguing. Is there a light version planned? I don't like making five dollar purchases blind... or is it deaf, in this case? :P

cool game not the easiest

got this one and it is neat on many many levels im not sure if the controls are a bit unresponsive or if it is to hard or im to crummy but i really like it i think since it says it can be played with eyes closed there needs to be sensitivity and calibration options a little tweaks and this would be a really great game if it goes on sale or a lite version comes out get it unless the mystery gets u like it did me and u got five buck burrning a hole in you pocket i really is good though

After listening to the preview they have on their site, I've come to the conclusion that this is overpriced garbage. Ever go to the doctor and put on headphones to have your hearing tested? That's what this is, for $5.

Not to argue - but most people would consider $5 for an audiogram to be a super bargain...

I will have to check out the site though as I always like things that are reasonably unique.

Very true. Except that when an audiogram is over, you get to see the results of how badly second-hand Nickelback has damaged your hearing.

Based on the description combined with the videos, I get the feeling that this is basically a program that will randomly combine a variety of canned audio loops (drum track, bassline, lead, filigree, pad, whatever) in such away that you have to match one to another by tilting, touching, or whatever. I'm thinking of something like a blind Auditorium-type of game. I'm also thinking this is more novelty than substance; a game that's trying to be different for difference's sake, and maybe trying a bit too hard.

The description (granted that it is self-promotion) states that they have quite a number of tracks. I think that this is one of those apps that is either really good, or really bad... It is sort of too bad that the price of admission is $5. If it ever falls, I will likely give it a try. Sometimes these audio apps can really be great experiences (like your apps).
