The Glowing Void 2 Collides With The App Store!

Published and released by popular games- and app-portal, Daily App Dream ( www.dailyappdream.com), independent developer Assyria Game Studio ( www.assyria-game.com) has just released to the app store a sequel to their highly popular game, The Glowing Void.

The Glowing Void 2 is a lot more than an update to the original Glowing Void game previously available exclusively for the Apple iPhone® and Apple iPod touch® - it is a brand new game with more content, more fun, more challenges, and is finally available as a Universal App in glorious HD where applicable. In this highly unique puzzle game, it is your objective to fill up a percentage of the screen with circles while avoiding a number of red dots of an unknown entity. The challenge is made harder because the red dots are dynamic, and thus bounces around all over the display: touch the screen to begin, avoid the dots at all times, and the longer you keep pressing, the larger the void (circles) become, and the more points you score before letting go! Tilting the device will alter the direction of gravity, allowing the red dots to be trapped by circles or voids already created. If you get hit by a dot, a life is lost, and by completing the bulk of the screen, you progress to the next level. It’s entertaining; it’s simple, and it’s fun.

The Glowing Void 2 is packed with new add-ons and enhancements. The game features a new and crisp (and brighter) art style, in addition to iCloud™ Support (!), OpenFeint integration for high-scores, full Retina display support, and rotating GUIs to allow for gaming in any orientation. But most importantly, this highly addicting sequel features the classic-, and some brand new game-play modes not previously available in the original version: in Classic Mode it is your task to fill up 70% of the screen, while avoiding the red dots, and in Survival Mode it is your task to avoid colliding with the red dots for as long as you can! A new mode called Gamer Mode is available as an in-app purchase, and is similar to Classic Mode, except this mode has additions in the form of pick-ups such as snowflakes, which will freeze the red dots for a limited period of time, and Star Bombs, which will destroy all dots within a certain radius. In the new Dodger Mode, also an in-app purchase, you need to achieve the highest score possible by surviving for as long as you can by dragging around a pre-made void with your finger, and finally, in Speed Mode, the last of the new in-app purchase modes, voids must be created very quickly to fill up the display before they are destroyed, and prior to taking 3 hits. 

The Glowing Void 2 is compatible with the Apple iPhone®, Apple iPod touch®, and the Apple iPad®, and is now available for download on the App Store from here:
