Monotaur (by Dobsoft Studios) - Launch trailer posted.

UPDATE: Release date confirmed for October 31st! Make sure to grab it for free on Wednesday.

Hey guys,

The latest Dobsoft Studios game "Monotaur" is currently waiting for review with Apple, with hopes to release it before the end of October!

What is Monotaur, you ask? It's a tilt-based game with a color-switching mechanic. But words are boring, so check out our new launch trailer instead



As shown in the video, there are four modes in the game. It will be launching as free and Universal - so there's no reason not to check it out!

Hope you enjoy the trailer. We'll post more about the game's release date as soon as we can. Thanks!

Please add touch controls, similar to Fireball SE, but with a button to switch color of course.

This looks incredibly cool. I like that it's tilt. Has a Tilt to Live vibe but with a style all it's own.

This game is interesting. I like this graphic style, if the background has more color it's better.

We are big fans of Tilt to Live. We hoped to enter the same genre but carve our own niche, and from your impressions it sounds like we achieved that. We take that as quite a compliment, so thank you

We haven't got plans for touch movement controls at this time. The tilt controls work very well (and are tweakable).

Thanks! Since we're going with the whole "mono" thing we were restricted to the spectrum of black to white for the coloring on all assets. There are subtleties to the gradient and things like that which are more noticeable on the device, compared to a video.

I see a lot of Tilt to Live and Silverfish here, but with a twist. Will check it out
