Omicron by Canupa [Relaunch]

The relaunch version of Omicron will soon be available on the App Store!

EDIT: Omicron and Omicron HD are coming to iOS on June 14th

Owners of Omicron (/HD) will receive the new version with the next (2.0) update.

About Omicron and Omicron HD:
Omicron is a color reaction game for 1 or 2 players on the same device.
Eliminate tiles and earn bonus time as the difficulty increases.
Omicron offers 3 game modes, many power-ups and achievements.

A color appears at the beginning of each level.
Tap tiles while they show up in that color to win.
Discover the 3 different game types of Omicron:

- C L A S S I C -
Eliminate all of the tiles while they appear in the right color
and finish the level before you run out of time.
You lose time with each mistake you make.
You win time for every correct tap you make and
time gained is transferred to the next level .
This helps you to reach higher levels.
Speed increases level by level.

- A R C A D E -
In this mode, there are no single levels.
The rate of color changes increases
contstantly while eliminated tiles respawn.
For each mistake you make you lose one life.
Without extra life bonus the game is over after just five mistakes.

- V E R S U S -
Play Omicron with a friend on just one device!
Eliminate all tiles while they appear in the right color.
The first player with 3 points wins the match!

Omicron comes with Game Center leaderboards
and many achievements to unlock.
We appreciate your feedback!

About the relaunch:
Omicron was first released in 2010 and featured by Apple as
"New and noteworthy" and in "What we play".
After some time our sweet little app started collecting dust and
almost passed out of our minds. Since we still like the gameplay idea
we decided to create a relaunch version.
The most obvious change is the complete redesign.
We also added a combo scoring system, new power-ups and 2 new game types:
Arcade Mode with respawning tiles and the Versus Mode for 2 players.
The Versus Mode is a fair split screen match (on the same device).
Gamecenter integration , retina- and widescreen support will also be
part of the 2.0 update. Stay tuned

Omicron's App Icon

Here is our final icon for the game! After experimenting with different colors we think this icon does the best job of representing Omicron. It's is all about colors so it should have a colorful icon! ... Hope you like it!

Expect the trailer within the next week

All the best,
Nemo (Canupa)

Omicron Arcade Mode Screenshot

This is a screenshot of the ARCADE MODE in Omicron.
Cleared tiles will respawn and color changes become faster over time.
With each mistake you make you lose one of these little hearts/lives in
the upper right corner. 5 mistakes = game over.
The Arcade Mode comes with separate highscore lists and achievements.

I love the look of it for sure! Seems like a simple, yet highly entertaining game. Can't wait to try it out!

Versus Mode


Right now we're working on making the VERSUS MODE as fun as possible.

Here's a little screenshot:

The versus mode is a split screen match of Omicron.
Both players get the exact same Omicron tiles. The tiles get locked for 2 color changes if your opponent is faster than you.

You can find more screenshots on our homepage.

Stay tuned,
Nemo (Canupa)

Coming soon..

Okay guys... after some unexpected "real-life stuff" interrupted the development process of Omicron (for a few weeks) we can now start working on the game again.
We are almost there! Some minor polishing and testing has to be done and we can finally publish "our precious" (Gollum voice).

So please stay tuned...
