Welcome to a paradise of sound and life.
Journey to the garden of sound and life, a mysterious and artistic place full of the extraordinary!
Eden Obscura, named after the historic camera obscura, is quite literally "light" entertainment; it uses the camera in your phone to create interactive visual effects while you jump around the screen gathering pollen to grow surreal artistic plants and landscapes in a world that is like no other. Vibrant colors combined with eclectic and sophisticated electronic music take you on an artistic and mind expanding journey, while at the same time it is quite simply a ton of fun to play.
・An artistic style simulating nature and plant life, imagined through the random flow of ink dropped down a sheet of paper.
・Unique garden visuals that use the camera to synthesize light and your surroundings in realtime.
・A unique action experience born from the symphony of grooving techno/house sound and stylistic visuals.
■Nominated in 3 categories as the first Japanese title by IGF Awards hosted by Game Developer Conference and selected as the committee choice award by the Agency for Cultural Affairs in the Art Festival Entertainment category, the world-acclaimed PixelJunk Eden takes on new life on mobile as Eden Obscura!

Ratings and Reviews
Fun game, but camera requirement should be optional
I enjoyed this game on the ps3, and was glad to see it for mobile. It’s true to my memory of that game, which is great.
What’s not so great is the requirement to access the camera, which isn’t strictly necessary for playability. Just display a random background instead of some pseudo psychedelic variation of the camera view. Suggest the camera feature, but leave it an option. I’m dinging two stars for this alone.
Also, the post-level resource tally takes much too long. Let me skip that please.
I’d like to see some harder levels too. I don’t use any of the spice enhancements because the goal is readily found without needing them.
More options for endless play too. Maybe track more stats to allow personal improvement.
Unfortunately, I played and loved the console version of this game. I feel this game retains all the great things about the original while injecting the primary play of the game with a new element - stress. Being able to fail gardens ruins the chill atmosphere created by the brilliant art, sound design, and gameplay. On the console, I didn’t mind the timer because I could always come back and find the spectra, whereas in this game you have 5 tries and that’s all you get. You can continue playing in a different mode, but playing through levels I have failed is completely unsatisfying. The play mechanics are awesome, the sound is awesome, the visuals are awesome, the structure of the game ruins the mood so excellently established by everything else.
I’m not usually into app gaming too much, but I was curious ever since I heard PixelJunk was bringing Eden to mobile. I’d never played the original Eden, but I didn’t have to to completely love and learn this game. Super addicting, AMAZING soundtrack, and the visuals and physics are stellar. Even the boot-up screen makes the app feel more refined and professional than most other apps I’ve played, and that refinement never ends. Great job, and can’t wait for Monsters on mobile ;)
