Having the power to manipulate the universe with one’s fingertips has never been anything more than folklore or legend until now! Eliss, an extremely unique and creative game by Little Eyes LLC, provides a multi-touch gaming experience unrivaled by other apps. In this game you pinch, move, and re-size planets in an effort to keep your odd ball universe alive. When like planets touch they join to make larger and larger planets, but when two non-like planets collide they generate a devastating reaction that if left unchecked will reduce the entire solar system to dust in a matter of seconds. New planets generate continuously and in random locations. It’s your job to move, join, split, and dissolve them quickly so your universe can remain in check. Crack your knuckles and loosen up your hands because Eliss is about to take you on a multi-touch adventure like you’ve never seen before!
To successfully manage the universe you’ve got keep the pink planets and yellow planets completely separate. Much easier said than done. Since the planets generate continuously and at random, they combine and collide against your will. You’re only chance of survival is to move planets around to buy time while you resize planets to fit inside of squeesars. Squeesars dissolve matching planets so if you can get planets to fit snugly inside them you’ll temporarily free up more space in your galaxy, making it easier to keep the yellow and pink planets apart.
If all of that wasn’t challenging enough for you, don’t worry there’s more. Black holes and other planet zapping party crashers make an appearance at the most inopportune times. Depletion of valuable energy, pulling planets into one another, and swallowing planets whole are common results for those unable to escape the influence of these universe depleting phenomena.
25 engaging levels await you in this intergalactic masterpiece. Each one requiring you to maximize your finger gaming dexterity and technique in new and different ways. It’s amazing how responsive the game is to even the most minuscule of gestures. With enough practice you can split spit ball sized planets with sausage fingers when you apply the proper technique. The fact that Eliss requires you to learn such technique amongst the fast paced intergalactic chaos that it presents is what makes the game such a gem. It’s simplistic old school fasad may give onlookers the initial impression of being a sub-par game with a sub-par experience, but let me assure you that couldn’t be further from the truth. After five minutes of playing I was in love. Eliss is multi-touch magic and without a doubt an app worth owning. If you like to try before you buy make sure to checkout Eliss Lite.
