TOUCH ARCADE - 5/5 "Masterfully crafted"
POCKET GAMER - 8/10 "You've experienced nothing like FOTONICA"

Ever wondered what running at 140mph feels like? FOTONICA is a first-person game about the thrill of speed and traveling flawlessly through complex environments.

One-handed controls: hold your finger down to run, release to jump, hold in mid-air to dive and land.

FOTONICA is simple, but is not easy: it follows a tradition of arcade games that are easy to pick up and almost impossible to master. A multi-layered level design across eight different tracks, together with a procedural endless mode make for a game that is incredibly deep. Think you can outrun your friends? Try the split-screen versus challenges.

The visuals are a treat for the nostalgic player but also for those hungry for new aesthetics. Every pixel is drawn to convey the maximum sense of speed, an exhilarating journey through light and void.

- 8 Levels to explore and master.
- Plus 3 different endless levels to compete for high-scores.
- Two-player split-screen multiplayer mode on the same device!
- 18 Achievements to unlock plus game stats.

- Beautiful, smooth, and unique vector-style graphics.

- 2 Difficulty settings to let you play an even faster version of FOTONICA.

5 star Potential, poor level design feels rushed.


It's potentially a great game. Feel of a Tron runner smashed into temple run.

Interesting idea let down by poor level design. Construct a nicer UI with a HUD or something to wrap it together. Currently, the hud is dull and difficult to read. I know you were going for a crisp design look but it needs to be readable and serve a function.

game feels unfinished in some levels especially lvl 4. the quick jump/ drop physics is slow and occasionally delayed. And jumping glitch out at the beginning of a run for some reason. I had to reinstall the app. It was fixed after that. No idea what went wrong.

You could add elements like vehicles, power ups or boss levels to keep interest. If this was free I'd give 4-5 stars but it's not and I expected something I didn't get.

Tl;dr Has potential, but don't rush in because it's app of the week just yet until they improve some of the basics. Cheers



This game is super-speedy-fun but it feels more like a puzzler because in some maps you have to find the best route. The game hasn't crashed in the hour I've played so far and the graphics are AMAZING
The maps bring a few faves and some new ones too. When the game gets a steam release I hope it has all these maps and more. 7/10


Manual control lover

Graphics wise, this game impresses, but the level design in most cases is awful. In the description for the game it talks about exploration but that certainly doesn't exist. Frustratingly linear, there is really only one path available if you want to complete the levels. Intrigue got the better of me. This game is a straight forward runner with pretty graphics and good sound design but that's about it. Me personally, I was bored after the first three levels.
