Default Auralux (free)

Hi all. I'm the developer of Auralux, a relaxing, minimalistic RTS game. I'm happy to report that the game has just been released for iOS.

I originally made the game for PC, and it was later ported to Android, where it did pretty well. Still, everyone I tell about it just replies "tell me when I can play it on my iPad", so I'm thrilled that it's finally out.

The gameplay is sorta similar to Eufloria or Galcon, and the presentation has been compared to Osmos, but I see key differences between them all. All the levels in Auralux are symmetrical, so it almost turns into a puzzle (i.e. how do you break the stalemate). It's meant to be slow and relaxing, but still a serious strategy game.

Anyway, let me know what you think!

Fantastic game here! I'm not usually a fan of these sorts of tactical resource rts games, but somehow you created a winning combination of aesthetic, sound, and difficulty which sucked me in. I played through the free pack in a matter of minutes and I'm right on the point of purchasing the combo pack. In any case, bravo!

Fantastic Job! The Game has a smart interface and simply graphics, but it's an addictive gameplay proposal withe colorful design.

First few levels free, then .99 for each level pack. Totally worth it!

So far I agree. I've played the tutorial and the first real level and it's a lot of fun. I appreciate that there's a hint system since these types of games can end up having one working strategy for some levels

I there any word on word on multiplayer support? I would sit on it all day.
Also maybe this is just me, but I though that maybe power ups like speed or an instant sun upgrade thrown in the middle of the map as a sun would be cool, as in you would have to capture it as if it were a sun.

Anyway definitely buyin the combo pack ASAP.

Looks like Osmos, sounds like Bad Hotel and plays like the old board game War. I liked it! But I wish there was a way to make time runs faster or slower like Osmos. Things get slow sometimes.
