    I beta-tested for this game, and just got the email that its out. Its a steal for $0.99. Its simplistic, but stylish and addicting. There are three game modes: one where you dodge bombs, one where you collect hearts, and one where you do both. If you want a gameplay comparison, think of papicatch except with a futuristic, minimalistic look and with the game's main gameplay twist that sets it apart: duel action! Each finger controls one arrow, and each has to collect hearts and dodge bombs. So, pretty much, its almost like two games at once. However, it never gets overwhelming or confusing. Its quite easy, but updates are promised and it is a joy to play. Heres a gameplay vid:



    Definitely check it out.

    C'mon guys, where's the discussion on this one? It's actually a pretty cool game. It's basically like playing split screen two player where you control both players! Talk about some intense hand-eye coordination! The developer is already working on some updates as well, so they are definitely interesting in making this a solid user experience.

    It looks interesting, I added it to my watch list earlier.

    Just doesn't have that "wow" factor.

    Bad week to release games with Zen Bound, Sway, Zentomino, iDracula and others coming out.

    Eh... Zen Bound, Sway and iDracula are so old news :) Seriously, though, I can see what you're saying, but this is a great alternative for those who don't want to dump 5 bucks on either Sway or Zen Bound. Of course everyone should buy iDracula while it's 99 cents :rolleyes:

    It would be nice to have a unlimited mode which gets harder and comes with an online leaderboard.

    I know they are already working on updates, I just don't know specifically what the updates are yet.

    Hi all,

    Direct link to Parallelus:

    http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=306297597&mt=8


    I am and my friend Max now working on first update. We think it will be ready during two week.

    Planned to include following:

    - Advanced/Hard levels pack. Limited lives, new rules for hearts-bomb generation, other...
    - Minor graphic improvement for menu.
    - Music on/off.

    Also we experimenting with multiplayer but I am afraid that multiplayer not for this update but for next.

    Also for TA members several promo-codes:

    Used FJ7Y7LT47H3K thanks :D Will leave a review by Wednesday!


    This game is BEYOND awesome! I wouldn't have gotten it without the promo code (because of the description that it needs "Fast reflexes" and coordination and I have neither) but ended up REALLY enjoying it! Highly recommended!

    game's simple to understand. i immediately got into it. good thing there's a combined mode or it would have been too easy. :)

    i think it would be better if you change how you pause the game (like do a double tap). sometimes, i'm having trouble controlling my thumbs (yes, they are short), i'm forced to lift them and the game automatically pauses thereby distracting me.

    why did you take a code when you beta tested? You should've gotten one in an email when it went live. :confused:
