Secret Exit, creators of Zen Bound 2 [$2.99] and Stair Dismount Universal [Free] (two of my personal favorites, in case you were wondering), have just announced their latest project called Eyelord. It's a marble popper in the same vein as Zuma, but with no spitting frogs, an excellent heavy metal theme and plenty of eyeballs. Check it out.

I have to say, I'm in love with that trailer. It's delightfully metal with a hint of rock opera, something that I never knew until right this very moment that I wanted in my marble popping games. Eyelord will be a free download with optional in-app purchases, so I'm curious to see just how that's implemented, but regardless I'm excited. It's also rumored to feature triple lightning bolts. Triple!

You can check out the game's official website for links to the tracks in the trailer, or catch some discussion in our forums, and hang tight for Eyelord which Secret Exit says should be "out soon."

Update: They must have REALLY mean "out soon" as Eyelord has just dropped in the App Store for FREE.

    This looks epic! Hopefully the freemium model isn't overly aggressive...

      There are no paywalls, IAP will be entirely optional but obviously beneficial. If you know that game with the guy with the jetpack from the guys with not an entire brick, you're not totally far off from how things are implemented in Eyelord :)

        This comment alone makes me want this game. :D

        Lol good enough for me. My hopes for the game are restored back to their previous fever pitch

    So it's a simplified Zuma coming 9 years after Zuma v1.0, but with heavy metal? Good luck with that.

      Actually it's coming out 14 years after Puzz Loop, but still not sure the point you're trying to make?

      • FrandSX

        The point we're trying to make with Eyelord is how the gameplay differs when it's designed from ground up for touch devices. There is a small but significant change which will be obvious once you get your hands on it. Once the game is out, I encourage anyone to compare Eyelord side-by-side with any game of this genre (even if there are frogs in it) and then make the call on if we've taken steps forward or not.

        Oh, my comment was a reply to the guy above. He implied that since Zuma was 9 years old there was no point in releasing another "Zuma-like" game, and I completely disagree.

        I'm actually incredibly excited for Eyelord, which is why I posted about it :)

      • FrandSX

        Thanks Jared :)

        I also meant that previous comment as just a general explanation of the game and some of the motivations behind it.Ā
