TOUCH ARCADE - 5/5 "Masterfully crafted"
POCKET GAMER - 8/10 "You've experienced nothing like FOTONICA"

Ever wondered what running at 140mph feels like? FOTONICA is a first-person game about the thrill of speed and traveling flawlessly through complex environments.

One-handed controls: hold your finger down to run, release to jump, hold in mid-air to dive and land.

FOTONICA is simple, but is not easy: it follows a tradition of arcade games that are easy to pick up and almost impossible to master. A multi-layered level design across eight different tracks, together with a procedural endless mode make for a game that is incredibly deep. Think you can outrun your friends? Try the split-screen versus challenges.

The visuals are a treat for the nostalgic player but also for those hungry for new aesthetics. Every pixel is drawn to convey the maximum sense of speed, an exhilarating journey through light and void.

- 8 Levels to explore and master.
- Plus 3 different endless levels to compete for high-scores.
- Two-player split-screen multiplayer mode on the same device!
- 18 Achievements to unlock plus game stats.
- Online rankings.
- Beautiful, smooth, and unique vector-style graphics.
- Electronic music by Michael Manning, Nicolò Sala, and legendary composer Baiyon.
- 2 Difficulty settings to let you play an even faster version of FOTONICA.
- Play in landscape or portrait mode.
- No ads, no in-app purchases.
- Record and share replays of your best runs.

“Mirrored Score” Option Needed!!

I installed the game earlier today and by golly is it fun. Me being a fan of games like Super Hexagon, WaveWave, and Boson X, this game is almost a dream come true! One thing that really bugs me, however, is that the timer and score at the bottom of the screen are hidden if you use your right hand to play! If the devs could put an option to swap the score and timers to the left side, that would make this game even more awesome than it is.

The best mobile game I’ve ever played

I first found this game when the Ouya was new, and from the point of view of someone who can never find a good mobile game to play, I’ve bought this on at least 3 different platforms, and should it eventually reach console, I’ll most likely buy it there too. I don’t know what it is about this game that is so addicting, but the ‘70s score-centered type of gameplay, combined with the high speeds you’d only experience drifting the touges of Mt. Akina, while still keeping the aesthetic of the game very simple yet very informative of what is happening around you... it’s something I have yet to experience through any medium. This game is a blessing, yet a curse - a reminder of what no other game has ever strived to achieve and probably never will again.

game is amazing, I have a color hack too!

So I literally just got this game to help out with my insomnia based off the simplicity of the design and animation type. So far I love it and the music is super relaxing, you can also play your own if you prefer that.

The color hack I used was simple and it doesn’t require what your phone doesn’t already have. I use this also just to change the mood of my phone. Lol add smart contrast and reduce white point and you’ll have a dope looking color scheme for all Apple stock apps.

For this game Go to settings>general>accessibility>display accommodations[turn it on]>color filters>turn the intensity up> then change the hue to whatever color options you like. Once that’s done go back to the game and the white lines will now be filled with the hue that you chose for your phone.

Quick tip:
Enable accessibility shortcuts and triple tapping will make this so much faster to turn on and off once the hue is set.

Hope you guys enjoy this game as much as I do!

P.s- I’m thinking about doing a vlog on live app reviews using the new screen recording feature in the new iOS 11 update. Let me know if you enjoy this tip!
