The game with the universe
As it happened before, it happend again. Mankinds puny struggle for meaning led once again to a collision with the universe. Being colonized is not every universes cup of tea, so naturally, someone is pissed a little angry and demands satisfaction. Therefore, all human presence outside of planet earth must be »demobilized« or the sun will be switched off for a couple of years.
So do your part human. Get the game now from the App Store and start demobilizing. It really is a bargain.

2010-10-18 – The update is out! :-)
2010-10-10 – The update has been submitted! Soon you'll be able to play the 30 new levels!
2010-09-26 – The update is coming along nicely. I'm planning on a release in the second or third week of October. There will be a lot of new content in it, especially interesting for those of you who experienced it as too easy and too short!
You might be a little confused about all this. So here's a list of questions that got asked a lot.
- How does this game play?
- Well, you need a skillful finger, a delight in destruction and patience to solve the physics based puzzles. It starts very easy but gets harder with each level. Some say it plays like pool billard in space. The gameplay video above gives a pretty good insight to what the game is like.
- What do I need to play it?
- Currently, the game is available for the iPhone, the iPod touch and the iPad. You can buy it on the App Store through the link at the top of the page.
- Does it play differently on the iPad?
- Nope. It's the exact same game. But it looks nicer because of the higher resolution.
- I really can't get past level ##. What to do?
- After you failed or reloaded the level 7 times, you can skip it. Just fail again and wait for the humiliating message. Then instead of reloading, select "skip" at the bottom of the screen.
- Where are the 30 new levels from the update?
- They get unlocked after you finish level 50. You then can play another 30 levels. If you finished the game before, just select "Resume" from the play menu or select level 51 in the level selection.
- Will this come to the Android?
- I'm planning to, yes. But I cannot provide a date, sorry.
- Why is the nice trailer music not in the game?
- It was mainly because it got very repetitive and annoying after 20 minutes of playing. For the update, I asked a piano playing friend if he would record a few tracks for me. He agreed and now we have music! If you're not into classical music, you can always have your iPod running as a background app while playing the game. I enjoyed it the most with Josephine Baker, but thats probably just me :)
- What's the music in the game?
- Check out "About" in the section right below.
- Who made this?
- It's an independent production created by me. Check out the section right below if you're interested in "me".
- The game crashes on me since the update! Help!?
- Please restart your device and try to launch the game again. If this doesn't help, please delete the app and download it again from the App Store (re-downloading is free). Unfortunately, you will lose your high scores this way and you will have to play through the first 50 levels again.
