Splice is an experimental and artistic puzzler. Immerse yourself in its microbial world and start splicing! Every level ("strand") consists of a number of cells that you will need to rearrange into a target structure in several moves ("splices"). Exploration and experimentation are key in determining how the curious little cells react to each other. Predict the sequence of splices you'll have to make in order to successfully arrange each strand. Re-sequence, mutate, and splice your way through this unique puzzle experience, and you'll exercise your ability to visualize sequential series of shapes over time. Solve your way to the final strands and you'll be left with a heady sense of mental accomplishment!

Looks amazing!!! The music is also fantastic, really sets the mood... I'm not too sure I fully understand the gameplay, but it looks like a great puzzler. Can't wait! =oD

I loved Auditorium and Fractal (one of the few in the case of the latter), but I've tried this one on the PC and I just can't play it without getting nauseated from the way the camera moves.

Then you need to dip your fingers in some mayo and smear it all over your iDevice screen for greater REALISM!

I love the fact that it looks like you are manipulating alleles like some super geneticist! I have never heard of the game before (missed the PC version, sorry) but I may have to get this tonight! After a long few weeks of paltry games it seems we are finally getting some good stuff!

I can't watch the videos right now (at work), but is this a pure puzzler or more along the lines of Osmos/Eufloria?

Hmmm...I'd say neither one. But, if I had to choose, in some ways, the ambiance and atmosphere are more similar to Eufloria.
