Zoo Entertainment has announced the release of Fractal, an ambient music puzzle game for the iPad created by Cipher Prime Studios who happen to be the development team behind the award-winning game Auditorium, in collaboration with indiePub, a community of independent video game developers. Check out the press release below for details and some really pretty shots:
CINCINNATI, OH – March 31, 2010 – Zoo Entertainment, Inc (NASDAQ CM: ZOOG), a leading developer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment software, today announced plans for its indiePub division to release Fractal for the iPad. Following the debut of the critically lauded music puzzler Auditorium, Fractal is the second collaboration between indiePub, a community of independent video game developers, and Cipher Prime Studios.
“We are delighted to once again team up with the talented folks at Cipher Prime,” said Mark Seremet, Zoo CEO. “By helping to bring a truly engaging experience such as Fractal to the iPad platform, we aim to encourage the growth of mobile gaming and inspire creativity amongst the independent gaming community that develops these games.”
Fractal is a rich environment that lives and breathes with the player. Amazingly intuitive but still complex, players cluster and chain their way through a pulsing technicolor dreamscape that includes more than 30 varying levels and 60 challenging puzzles. Players arrange fractals, defined as a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, by pushing them into larger clusters that will bloom, exploding outward.
Clusters of any size are possible, chain reactions can go on indefinitely and power-ups allow the player to clear an entire board in an instant. Three different modes of play – Campaign, Puzzle, and Arcade – create varied problems and emphasize different aspects of gameplay.
Everything in Fractal, from the vibrancy of the colors to the audio tone, is linked to overall experience. Cipher Prime’s new MusicBox audio engine ebbs and flows with the pace of gameplay. More than just a puzzle game, Fractal is a sentient world that fails and prospers alongside the player. Fractal for the iPad will be available Spring 2011 for $4.99. Fractal is currently available for PC and Mac download from Cipher Prime with an online playable demo at www.playfractal.com.Powered by Sidelines
