Illusion Labs’ Sway: Multitouch iPhone Game for Swingers
January 20th, 2009
This new iPhone / iPod Touch game looks like it could be a real blast. It’s a cartoony physics-based-platformer where you use your tiny little hands instead of your feet to make your way through the universe.
In Sway, you move your character using your fingertips to control their hands as they grab onto objects and swing and sway through a maze of worlds, charged with the (not-so-innovative, but still fun) task of collecting stars before the clock runs out. And with character names like Lizzie, The Friendly Ninja, Benny the Bear and Recyclable Man, what’s not to like.
The gameplay mechanic sort of reminds me of a modern day take on the classic arcade game Crazy Climber, but instead of climbing up a building, you’re climbing up, down, left and right across the landscape. Be sure to check out the video clip below to see the game in action.
