Description

PARTICLE MACE (iOS) is explosive arcade fun that pays homage to twitch games of the past, but replaces the typical guns with an unruly physics-based weapon. To survive, you must carefully navigate around the many hazards while building up momentum to swing your weapon into your foes, all in a field of brightly abstracted visuals and an entrancing procedural background. PARTICLE MACE is a game about trying not to die!

History

Andy is a strong believer of the idea that a simple game is not automatically an easy one, and a complex game is not automatically challenging. PARTICLE MACE began as a class project on particle interactions, and through iteration has evolved into the game you can play today! PARTICLE MACE development seeks to strike the balance between simplicity and difficulty; it is appealing to everyone in just seconds - easy one touch controls mean learning to play is instantaneous, but mastering the game takes dedication and focus.

Features

  • 150 missions to complete
  • Killer OST
  • Reach a zen-like state as you master the art of swinging trash in great arcs to kill enemies
