Nominated for the IGF ‘Innovation in Mobile Game Design' award.


Eliss is a groundbreaking game that uses multi-touch in a way never before seen. Your job is to keep up harmony in an odd universe made of blendable planets. Touch-control multiple planets at once, join them together into giant orbs or split them up into countless dwarf planets, and match their size with the squeesars. Wipe off the stardust, resist to the attraction of the vortex and other space phenomena, and slow down the passage of time. Each of the 25 levels will require creative ways and strategies in using your fingers. Warm up your hands, you’re up for some serious finger gymnastics in the bizarro galaxy.

Eliss Lite contains 3 fully playable sectors (out of 25 from the full version).
