X-Plane Helicopter First Look

iSplume First Look

Flashbang Studios has just released their first iPhone game, “iSplume”.

Priced at $2.99, it’s an iPhone version of their popular flash game “Splume”. Apparently, a splume is “a strange creature with a wide emotional spectrum” and, somewhat unsurprisingly, matching some quantity together is advantageous.

After just a couple minutes with the flash-based predecessor it’s clear that the game has an entertaining take on the “shoot things at thing to match colors” genre. The splumes appear to obey the laws of physics (maybe not our laws) as they stick and droop together.

The developers have taken this to the next level on the iPhone, where moving the device will change the direction of gravity.

We’ll have a review up before too long, but in the mean time, take a look at the gameplay with this video from the developer:
