* A Unique Action Puzzle Game *

Halcyon is named for the mythological bird of ancient Greece, said to charm the winds and seas into a calm during the Winter Solstice.

Gameplay is one part spacial action puzzler and one part interactive stringed instrument combined in an experience designed specifically for the iPad.

Colored currents travel inexorably toward each other. Strum the strings to match the currents, creating both phonic and visual harmony.

Take on the role of the Halcyon, conducting nature, untangling currents, and bringing calm to the wind, sea, land, and stars.

* A Generative Musical Instrument *

Halcyon features a complete generative soundtrack that becomes an instrument when you play the game. Since its designed to accompany you while you play, you'll create tranquil sonic landscapes as you travel along.

* Tons of Gameplay *

: 36 Levels through Four Environments

: Two Endless Modes that dynamically adjust difficulty based on how you are doing

: A Twelve Song Generative Soundtrack

: OpenFeint + Game Center

If you enjoyed Unify, you'll love Halcyon

Dios Mio!

:
This update really makes the game flow much better. I'm loving the difficulty progression. I love when developers revisit apps and listen to feedback from reviews.

2/5 stars

Restful?! NOT!

:
Billed as relaxing and soothing, this is simply a redundant exercise in trying to keep ahead of ever increasing collisions.

Does it get better or different at other levels? Who knows? You have to beat the first (boring repetitive) level -- no way to say "no thanks," and see the next level.

Save your cash.
