"Gloop" sits somewhere in that improbable space between an interactive lava lamp, foam resting on water and alien clouds lit by the setting sun(s).
Whatever it is, as you stir this bizarre mix thousands of virtual molecules collide with each other, sticking and slipping. This generates heat causing the gloop to glow and become less viscous. If you treat the gloop more gently it cools and solidifies allowing you to give it form.
Gloop also features warping of photos, images and real time video on iPhone 3GS+, iPod 3rd Gen+ and iPad+. Photos and real time video require a device with a camera.
Gloop has all the features of Gloop FREE with the following additions:
- Shape preserving globs which you can send spinning into the gloop and into each other.
- Gravitational attraction, tilt control and explosion strength.
- Multiple image warp simulation types as well as diffract and clone particle effects.
- Use video and images to influence particle motion.
Also by RunSwimFly - "Germs" and "Germs FREE" the liquid physics engine of "Gloop" employed in a game of microbial conquest.
What's New in Version 1.7
Use video and images to influence particle motion.
High resolution support for iPhone 4S.
Fixed clipping issue with final gloop color.
There are lots of pixel swirling and fluid simulation apps out there. Gloop isn't like any of them. The static images above don't do justice to the amazing way Gloop looks and acts in real time. It is really stunning. To me, it is like a metaphor for our universe, with high energy explosions of bright hot color slowly cooling to dark colors and entropy. With the new features, it's as close as one can get to psychedelia without ingesting a handful of magic mushrooms.
Two additions would be GREATLY appreciated. 1-more control over gloop and glob colors, or at least more color combos to choose from. 2-ability to save settings as presets, so that one doesn't have to recreate the settings every time. If a background image is in use, it should save along with the rest of the settings as a preset.
...worth 5 stars and the $ – NO DOUBT!
Amazingly simple; incredibly adddictive!
It's basically an interactive lava lamp, it's so much fun and if you can get globs to sort of orbit each other with the gloop slowly flowing around them it ends up with a hypnotic sort of rhythm to it. Very entertaining, well worth every penny!
Worth the purchase!
Frankly, I'd love to give Gloop five stars. I've burned so many hours just toying with it, messing with settings and watching the interactions produce unique patterns and slings. Just amazing. I only wish that you could add and remove gloop from the screen. With that, this is a five-star app without question.
