Parallelus is out!

I beta-tested for this game, and just got the email that its out. Its a steal for $0.99. Its simplistic, but stylish and addicting. There are three game modes: one where you dodge bombs, one where you collect hearts, and one where you do both. If you want a gameplay comparison, think of papicatch except with a futuristic, minimalistic look and with the game's main gameplay twist that sets it apart: duel action! Each finger controls one arrow, and each has to collect hearts and dodge bombs. So, pretty much, its almost like two games at once. However, it never gets overwhelming or confusing. Its quite easy, but updates are promised and it is a joy to play. Heres a gameplay vid:

Definitely check it out.

C'mon guys, where's the discussion on this one? It's actually a pretty cool game. It's basically like playing split screen two player where you control both players! Talk about some intense hand-eye coordination! The developer is already working on some updates as well, so they are definitely interesting in making this a solid user experience.

It looks interesting, I added it to my watch list earlier.

Just doesn't have that "wow" factor.

Bad week to release games with Zen Bound, Sway, Zentomino, iDracula and others coming out.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

Eh... Zen Bound, Sway and iDracula are so old news Seriously, though, I can see what you're saying, but this is a great alternative for those who don't want to dump 5 bucks on either Sway or Zen Bound. Of course everyone should buy iDracula while it's 99 cents

Of course. We wouldn't steer you wrong (or at least I wouldn't )

It would be nice to have a unlimited mode which gets harder and comes with an online leaderboard.

I know they are already working on updates, I just don't know specifically what the updates are yet.
