Spherical: now available on the App Store 

London, December 6 th 2011 

Spherical is a game that lets its players take control of a Black Hole. It was released last night on the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch users.

The game lets a player take control of a Black Hole to clear the screen of ever-invading Spheres. The Black Hole can remove Spheres permanently by pulling them into its centre. Spheres and Black Holes come in different types, and the player must ensure that the Black Hole only pulls in a Sphere of the same type. The Black Hole can either pull all the Spheres towards it, or can flip its gravity to push all the Spheres away. The player must ensure that they time when to pull Spheres in and when to push Spheres away to ensure the survival of their Black Hole.

The controls have been specifically designed with touch-screen mobiles in mind: touch once on the Black Hole to change gravity and twice to change the Black Hole type.

Spherical is an original concept from Cyan Five Limited. It has been released with 42 custom-built levels that incorporate different challenges for players. There is also a “Relentless” mode that allows players to check their Spherical against with the rest of the world.

Additional levels, and an iPad version are currently also in development.

Spherical is integrated with Game Center to offer 16 achievements and a leaderboard to check how you're getting on against the rest of the world. It is the first game released by Cyan Five Limited, and sells at $0.99 / £0.69 on the App Store.
