Pantomime magically immerses your Mac in networked virtual worlds with your iPads, iPhones and other Macs – all in interactive 3D. Welcome to virtual worlds for the rest of us!
Upon launching Bug Farm, Fire Ants, Spiders, Scorpions and Mantises are coming after your Mac and your mobile devices. Tap to throw balls at them, push or lead them off the edge of the virtual table – or using Throwables, feed them ants and other bugs until they grow to monstrous size!
On a Mac, moving through the world is simple: use the Arrow keys to move across the table, hold Shift to go fast, and Option to turn. Gamers may also like the WASD keys For navigation details, visit the Keyboard Help Scene.
Bug Farm is the launch scene for the Pantomime Playground – a changing gallery of small, magical, physically realistic Scenes you can interact with and play with others in.
• Bug Farm - defend against bugs by throwing balls or squishing them flat
• Gravity Dispenser – delicate Gravity Ampules change the scene's gravity to Earth, Moon, or No Gravity when cracked
• Bowling Lane with pin setter – keep rolling till all the pins are down
• Dominos – a machine is placing dominos in a circle. Reach in with your tablet or phone and play. Can you start a chain reaction?
• Touch Help - shows how to reach in, move and play using a tablet or phone
• Keyboard Help – interact using using a computer or device with a keyboard
To bring up the main Menu in any virtual world, press the center of your screen. The Menu lets you choose a Scene, adjust Settings and Throwables, Connect with other players on the WiFi network, and more. To dismiss the Menu, tap the center: Back to Virtual World.
THROWABLES – Choose from over a dozen kinds of objects to toss or place into 3D worlds -- from balls, dice and dominos, to sticky dirt and asteroids that defy gravity. And Throwables have helpful built-in physics – so when you tap a Domino you gently place it, while a Bowling Ball automatically rolls forward.
In the Bug Farm world, the lead Throwables are Ping Pong Ball, Ants, Spiders, and Bug Bait Balls that attract the creatures.
