It is the first audio-only game for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Aurifi combines the two things the iPhone and iPod Touch do best - music and organic interaction.
What is an Audio Game?
You can play Aurifi with your eyes closed, this is a 100% sonic experience.
In video games, players interact with graphics, moving them, aligning them, and reacting to them. In the Aurifi Audio Game, players interact with sound in very much the same way. Sounds different? It is!
Aurifi is an ever-changing sonic landscape that is breathtaking. At the same time it invites you to react, control, fine-tune, identify and dial yourself into your surroundings. The bespoke musical elements are designed to help you feel moods, emotions and progression.
Aurifi was developed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch platforms, to make best use of the device’s methods of interaction. Shake, slide and tilt to control the sounds and complete the challenges, and also contribute to the sound.
About the Audio
Video Game makers pour loads of time and effort into making the visual appearance of games spectacular - we have done the same for the audio in Aurifi. Each sound element has been carefully crafted to provide you with a luscious experience that sounds incredible.
You need to wear earphones or headphones to play. Once you are plugged in to Aurifi, you will realise that the ‘game environment’ is massive - you interact with sounds in a 3D audio environment with intense depth. We have designed Aurifi to ‘break outside’ of the device, and get away from the limitations of that small screen.
You know that rush that you get when a big beat or bass-line come in on your favourite records? THAT is the reward in Aurifi - as you pass each micro-challenge, you hear another layer of the music, and they are designed to sound great.
A staggering number of audio samples have been written to work with each other. This means we can mix-up the experience, so you very rarely hear the same music twice. No pre-defined musical path here - we’ve created an entirely new audio game engine to vary the audio experience each time you play.
Like any iPhone or iPod Touch experience, the quality of audio experience can be enhanced by the use of excellent earphones or headphones.
If all this sounds great, but you want to hear it before you buy, go to aurifi.com to listen to the audio demo. Make sure you come back!
Allow yourself to fall in love with Aurifi.
Aurifi has been created for iPhone and iPod Touch by an award-winning team of concept designers, developers, musicians, sound designers and engineers.
What's New in Version 1.1
The 1.1 update totally removes timing lag (latency). The tilt games use a purposeful inertia, which should not be confused for lag. Thanks - The Aurifi Team
* Eliminated lag issues
* Tweaks and improvements to 3D spread of sounds
* Reduced memory usage at startup
Thank you all for the feedback and support, please be sure to follow us on twitter @aurifi and find us on Facebook.

Better but not good enough
The new update certainly improved the game play significantly. Unfortunately, however, it is still not quite good enough to make the game an enjoyable experience. I would like to see the following points addressed in following updates:
• “Steering the sound" is still difficult to use
• "shake it" is impossible to be used so that it fits the rhythm of the music
• getting 'guard' and ‘evade’ right is a matter of luck, not skill
• sometimes the countdowns are not tight with the music
• the game still crashes (even with regular restarts of the iPhone)
• still intermittent timing lag
• detailed description of each of the actions and how they are supposed to be executed
• separate tutorial and game section to be able to skip the beginning
Still, it’s an amazing concept and I really hope the developers will work on it until its perfect.
Keep up the good work!!
Good but needs fast iphone
This concept is brilliant and will definintely fill your time while sitting in public transport! Only issue is that they have developed the app to use the full capability of the iphone and consequently you run out of resources and it crashes. This happens a lot on my iPhone 3G (NOT jailbroken).
The developer suggesting that a restart is required each time before you play is a ridiculous solution. The fact is, you will need an iPhone 3GS or the new iPhone 4 to play this game as the developers intended.
Crashes A LOT. No lag though! when its going.
If this worked appropriately on my 3G then I would give the app a 5-star rating.
I really really wanted to like this game. I love music games and also wanted to support UK developers in the North of England. It takes ages from switching the game on to actually playing anything due to all the menus and pages. The game seems to be one long tutorial. I can't even get past the "guarding" section cos it doesn't recognise the tilt properly. I've really persevered with this game but gave up cos it just wasn't fun to play. If the developers can fix some of the problems then I'd be willing to give it another go. Otherwise it's difficult to recommend this game.
