Eliss Infinity Gets A Huge Number Of Improvements In First Major Update

June 29, 2014
Eliss Infinity, the sequel to the acclaimed 2009 multitouch puzzle game Eliss developed by Steph Thirion, has just received its first major update. Released last February, Eliss Infinity offers new ways to play Eliss, which has you fusing planets to turn them into giant orbs or splitting them into dwarf planets. One of the game's new modes is the eponymous Infinity mode, an endless mode where you can create bigger combos to get larger power-ups and higher scores. With its first major update, which brings the app to version 1.1, Eliss Infinity now features Infinity mode first and foremost in its unlock flow. As noted by Thirion:
This is the first Eliss Infinity update and it's a big one. A big change is it makes the Infinity game first and foremost, so the flow has changed a bit, in hindsight it should have been this way on launch.
In the game's unlock flow, Infinity mode now comes right after the tutorial, which has been improved with more comprehensible concepts. It is then followed by Odyssey mode after 5,000 points and Sandbox mode after three sectors. The first major update to Eliss Infinity also lowers the difficulty at the beginning of Infinity and in many sectors of Odyssey. Eliss Infinity 1.1 also sees the introduction of Game Center achievements and their in-game counterparts, Gems. If you've already played Eliss Infinity, expect to get some achievements and gems based on your progress when you update to the game's new version.
