Auralux is an abstract, essentialized, and simplified real-time strategy game.

You command only one type of unit and have only one type of order to give those units. You and your opponents start the game with precisely equal resources. Quick reflexes will get you nowhere. The only path to victory is through clever strategy.

Auralux features a slow, floating feel and vibrant minimalistic graphics. The entire game pulses to the rhythm of ambient music, and the player's actions evoke sounds that smoothly coalesce into melody.

This game is designed to provide a relaxing, cerebral experience. Every choice matters, and only the best strategies will succeed.

-Includes every feature and more from the renowned PC game.
-Free to try for as long as you like! Simply purchase additional levels for a very low price if you enjoy the game and want more challenges.
-Gameplay optimized for touch screen devices.
-Countless hours of gameplay
-Two available game modes : Normal and Speed Mode, with a secret mode for expert players to unlock!
-Relaxing, ambient soundtrack brings you into a rhythm and meditative state.

Needs multiplayer

I really like the concept of the game but how about a real simple mode to play against other people locally on your network. I'd buy that. If you could also setup a free mode to play against others on the Internet that would be neat as well.

Additionally the leaderboard could be setup so you can challenge other people instead of only to record people's speed mode scores. Maybe even a tournament mode where 8 people or more could go head to head on a massive battle scale.

As it is, it's a great game and easy to learn, but it's more or less "I have more dots than you do, so I win" type fighting. It's all Zerg. No strategy beyond that. Get more Suns and keep them from the enemy you will eventually win by Attrition. It really should be able to be more ships shoot the same targets where if you can overwhelm a single target so it's not a trade 1 for 1. Ie if you have 3 v 1 then the 3 would win against the 1 but if 3 others targeted one of those 3 then they would win and so forth. Right now the way it is, for every dot I have I kamikaze one dot into another killing both dots. There should be at least a roll to see which dot lives.


I have never played such a fun and relaxing game ever. It is not like those games where you get pressured and scare to play on farther, this is just a game with relaxing audio and a nice speed of battles. WANTS: those this game is near perfect in my opinion there are a few things that I wish to be brought to the game. I wish that you could change your team color to what you want. This is a minor thing but I feel that it would add that much more to this game. I also would like outside of game upgrades like "your suns produce 1.5x the amount normal in game" I feel that that would be a cool thing to do. And finally I would like enemy options... What I mean by that is that you can customize what your enemies play style could be ( passive or aggressive) I have seen many game that implement that feature and fail at it, but I feel that you guys could pull it off. THIS GAME ROCKS!!!

Bare bones and skewed

As a huge fan of this type of game, I picked it up as soon as I saw a friend playing. I was also disappointed quickly. The pros: cool colors and explosions. That's it. The cons: extremely basic and simplified, enemies team up against you (which sky-rockets difficulty), painfully slow (in attempt to make you purchase speed mode), little variety.
Normally I don't mind very simplified games, we don't always need a ten minute tutorial to start playing, but this takes that a step too far by making the AI team up against you. The extremely slow movement speed in addition to having no control over anything, makes the strategy for the game: hold on and hope they attack each other for once. There's no depth to the gameplay because of that, so every map you do the exact same thing. There's so much potential in this game type, since I've played many games that do it right (like phage wars), but this one just falls short.
