Anodia by Clueless Little Muffin





Hi!
After a few months of intense development we're proudly presenting our game: Anodia. Itís a brick breaker with superb realtime physics and stunning visuals. A novel approach to the classic mechanics guarantees fast-paced addictive gameplay and a lot of fun. It's also easy to pick up and play. Over 50 unique and handcrafted levels makes it almost impossible to be bored (and there're plans for even more comming with the updates)!

From the very beginning we focused on Game Center integration and support for a high resolution Retina display. Anodia will come as an universal app, so it could be played on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad with high resolution graphics.

And below is the official trailer. Hope you'll enjoy it!


The release is scheduled for the first half of May, so keep your eyes open.

I have to say im not generally a fan of brick blocker games as i dont have much patience... but some of the games in that trailer looked really awesome, love the geometry wars type look mixed in!

Looks excellent, but from the trailer... aren't the blocks supposed to break when you hit them? I notice it takes a ton of hits for one to break.... how does that work? but still looking forward to this one.

im back guys!

Thanks Guys! It's really great to see so encouraging comments, we hope there will be even more of them

phattestfatty, it's true that in most levels you have to hit the bricks more than once (though, in couple of them one hit is all you need) but that's not so uncommon for a classic brick breakers too, in most of them there are types of bricks that need more than one hit. We just took it to the next level . And as far as we can tell it works great and is a fundation for some really cool effects . Besides, in most of the levels there are some visual indicators of how much life do bricks have left (like in the 4th level shown on the trailer the bricks get darker with every hit) and there's allways a heart icon on the top of the screen representing the remaining life of the last hit brick.

BTW, if you'd like to see more, go to the Anodia microsite for some more screenshots .

This game looks great! i've been waiting for a GOOD brick breaker game to come out. What kind of power-ups are going to be in the game?

We're glad to hear that . And we hope that Anodia will fulfill your expectations.

In Anodia there is a whole bunch of bonuses, both good and bad (over 20 to be more precise). Most of them are classical brick breaker stuff but there are some twists here too . To give a couple of examples you'll have multiball, steel ball, fireball and crazy ball; slower and faster paddle/ball, 3 different types of firearms, crazy ball and helper paddle (that will automatically follow balls preventing them from getting away). But we think the most important power-up is the gravity field that will attract all the balls to the position where you tapped the screen (you can see it in action on the 3rd level shown in the trailer). We hope this answer is satisfying .

If anyone has any questions or comments we'd be more then happy to hear them .

That's fantastic! You said there were going to be updates in the future after the release, am I correct? Also, what will be the intro price?

Yes, that's the plan .

We're not sure yet although the most probable price is $1.99. There may be some short introductory sale, but the decisions are yet to be made and we can't make any promises yet.
