* A Unique Action Puzzle Game *
Halcyon is named for the mythological bird of ancient Greece, said to charm the winds and seas into a calm during the Winter Solstice.
Gameplay is one part spacial action puzzler and one part interactive stringed instrument combined in an experience designed specifically for the iPad.
Colored currents travel inexorably toward each other. Strum the strings to match the currents, creating both phonic and visual harmony.

Take on the role of the Halcyon, conducting nature, untangling currents, and bringing calm to the wind, sea, land, and stars.

* A Generative Musical Instrument *
Halcyon features a complete generative soundtrack that becomes an instrument when you play the game. Since its designed to accompany you while you play, you'll create tranquil sonic landscapes as you travel along.

* Tons of Gameplay *
: 36 Levels through Four Environments
: Two Endless Modes that dynamically adjust difficulty based on how you are doing
: A Twelve Song Generative Soundtrack
: OpenFeint + Game Center

If you enjoyed Unify, you'll love Halcyon

Superb!

This is a beautiful game. It somehow manages to be soothing and frantic at the same time. It is very easy to pick up but very difficult to master as you progress to the later levels. The way the generative music adapts according to your moves is genius. The screenshots don't do it justice - you really have to play the game to discover how addictive it is. Highly recommended.

Great

Nice sounds and gameplay but it becomes so frustrating towards the end, I nearly threw my iPad across the room haha
