'Design + art + video game. Who wouldn't want to play?' –Steven Heller, PRINT Magazine
What would a video game look like if developed in 1923 by a bunch of angry modern artists?
FLOMM is an historical game that recreates the struggle of Modern Art against the Tyranny of Tradition!
A loose interpretation of the art, design, theories + counter-theories of the early moderns! A collision between New and Old, Avant Garde vs. Establishment, Innovation vs. Bourgeoisie + The Future vs. The Past!

What's New in Version 1.33
This version fixes a bug with iPad devices of all generations that displayed incorrect menus with odd sizing.
FLOMM is awesome!
As the other reviewers have indicated, the gameplay is familiar and the visuals are highly original. At this writing the game 32-bit only, which means that it won't work when Apple moves iOS to 64-bit. I really hope the developer can and will update the game to 64-bit because the game really is a whole lot of fun.
And now for something completely different...
The game play is familiar and satisfying, but the design and concept are totally different. Every element is saturated with meaning, even though it's not always obvious what it means. The sound effects and hand drawn explosions add to the experience. Where else can you blast Monday morning to pieces?
Fin. Tradition wins.
One minute I'm on level 17, the next I've somehow beaten the game. Beautiful game, sound effects are extremely satisfying. Not too hard but not too easy either.
