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

Great idea, didn't work for me
I've been wishing for a while for an eyes-free game so I was delighted when I heard about Aurifi. The concept is great and its sound is beautiful and engrossing, but at least for me it isn't really a playable game.
Probably I'm a slow learner, but even with Aurifi's occasional recap of instructions, I was unable to learn the audio cues and responses as fast as the game wanted me to progress. In addition, at least on my old original iPhone, the lag between my actions and Aurifi's responses was long enough to disrupt play (this was very apparent when I tapped rhythms and I suspect it was happening with tilts as well). Finally, for my purposes - playing while in bed or unobtrusively in public places - the tilt interactions weren't ideal; I'd have preferred using gestures instead.
Good try and I hope to see more games in the genre. If you're interested at all spend the $1.99 and give it a shot, you might like it better than I did.
Fresh, innovative experience!
I read about this game on "Game Hunters" website. Glad I spent my money on it because no other game offers the same experience that this one does. It's got a learning curve, and if you're deaf in one or both ears you won't be able to play it, but what a cool idea for a game and, in my opinion, implemented very well.
There are a few bugs here and there, but I expect these will be ironed out soon and they are minor so they don't really cause frustration.
If you're looking for a new experience on your iPhone, this is it!
NOT COMPATIBLE WITH IPHONE 4S.
This is a very cool game concept, and I *WANT* to give it a 4 or 5 star review, but there are two problems. I have an iPhone 4S and a 1st-gen iPad.
On the iPhone 4S, the game invariably crashes before the tutorial is finished. I have never been able to play the actual game.
On the ipad, the game works fine, but it is not designed for the iPad, and at 2x it won't acknowledge the edge-of-the-screen taps that are needed to play the game with your eyes closed (which, after all, is kind of the point). If they ever update and fix this problem, I will be quite happy to enjoy what is, after all, an innovative game concept, but until then, I consider this a broken app and a waste of my hard-earned money.
