After developing the great game "Loops Of Zen", I player around with its graphics engine and ended up with this. The loops actually follow gravity and for me they look like a slime mold, hence the name. Play around with it, and make sure not all of it leaves the display otherwise you would need to restart the application. If you enjoy this graphics you definitely will enjoy the game: Loops Of Zen, also available here.
Enjoy, Dr. Arend Hintze
Ok, first of all I love Loops of Zen. It's a great game that is challenging as well as constantly replayable. It was one of the first apps I bought.
This app, however, lacks a point. There are plenty of apps that are "useless" and don't serve any real purpose other than fun. But all apps, no matter how useless, need to give each person a reason to keep it on their iPhone. Right now this app is neither fun nor functional.
Here's a suggestion-- make it a simple puzzle game. The aim would be to prevent the loops from touching the sides by tilting and turning the iPhone. If a loop touches any side, game over. You could even add a point system, i.e. the longer you keep the loops from touching the sides, the more points you get.
Just to watch
OK so it really isn't a 5 star application, but it is what it is, a screensaver that can't be used as a screensaver because of the limitations of the OS, but I wish it was a screensaver.
I find it mesmerizing to watch.
Neat little graphic
I don't understand reviewers giving two stars or fewer for a free app. It's free people, be kind.
This app reminds me of an hour glass, albeit a digital, slime mold, loopy hour glass with no skinny waist. Would be better if the movement were more oozy, flowy, like a lava lamp's lava.
