Microtrip, a recent addition to the App Store, sends iOS gamers off on a curious journey based “inside the body of a strange creature,” according to its developer. You can pick up the app for just $0.99 for a limited time only, and it’s optimized for the iPhone and iPod touch.
Promising users a “soft-body physics game” and procedural generated levels (which make the application different and more challenging with each round), Microtrip also includes two different control schemes – touch or tilt – and bonus levels.
It’s created by Arthur Guibert, who explains in the app’s release notes:
The goal is simple: go as deep as possible. For completing such a task you need to dodge the monsters as well as eating the white cells that are keeping you alive. The game is punctuated by special pills that give the blob a weird yet amazing power. How far can you go?
The app’s $0.99 price is 50 percent off, and we’re not sure how long this limited-time offer is going to be available for. To recap, here’s a complete list of features available in the application:
- Realistic soft-body physics
- Smooth graphics at 60fps
- Two control schemes: tilt or touch
- Awesome super bonus pills
- Procedurally generated levels
We’ve included a handful of screenshots taken from Microtrip below, too.
