Here’s another grab from Brandon’s Blog — an iPhone game called Eliss, which has you splitting, merging, and moving colored planets to “keep up harmony in an odd universe.” Brandon does a lovely job of describing the experience, so I’ll just link you to that.

Up for this year’s IGF Mobile Design Innovation award, Eliss seems well deserving of it, with creative use of the iPhone’s hardware (particularly multi-touch) and super-slick style to boot. You can find it in the App Store here.

    Hahaha, I _knew_ you’d dig this.

  • FISH

    it’s so great.

    This looks pretty cool. I don’t understand what’s happening, but the use of multitouch and gestures is exceedingly cool.

    That said, I wonder if it’ll end up a touch (pun unintended) frustrating though in reality.

    I can’t exactly tell what the gameplay goals are from that video, but this looks very polished.

    eliss is great. it definitely gets frustrating though, especially when you need three or more fingers to prevent different colored shapes from getting sucked into the same black hole and ending the game. requires a completely different kind of dexterity than most games.
