One last iPhone game piece for the day! With a year passed since he released revered iPhone puzzler Eliss, developer Steph Thirion has debuted his next project for the system, Faraway, a one-button arcade game that has players swinging a comet around stars, flying across space, and forming constellations in star clusters.
Though it's a simple concept, challenging players to form as many constellations as possible to pump up their score before time runs out, the game makes sure the stages never feel stale by randomly generating where the stars are.
Thirion is releasing the game under his new company Little--Eyes. He didn't give any details on pricing or when to expect Faraway's release, but he did provide a demonstration for the game alongside five other one-button Gamma IV titles at GDC.
