Rovereto, Italy – Independent developer, Vladimir Vlasov is pleased to announce the release of Blins 1.2, an update to his unique physics-based puzzle game developed exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Blins is an exclusive iOS game based on the physics simulations. The goal of the game is to navigate balls through physics fields and labyrinths. A player has to draw objects which serve as obstacles on the way of the balls.
One of the key features of the game is that any object drawn by a player becomes a physics body that fully obeys the laws of physics inside the game. The fact that a player can draw any kind of 2D shape provides limitless number of solutions for each level which are, starting from level 26, algorithmically generated. These two factors make Blins exceptionally diverse for a puzzle game. The minimalistic design utilises colour coding that determines physical properties of objects. Such approach to graphics creates apparent connection between appearance of an object and its physical role in the gameplay making it easily understandable for a player.
The game suits very well for people who like to solve puzzles without predesigned solutions in their own way. Each level in Blins supports limitless solutions depending on a player’s skills. Interesting feature is that a player with the progress in the game learns not to memorise particular solutions but learns to understand why this solution was in fact successful. This obtained knowledge helps to solve more complicated levels with ease.
Extensive use of the laws of physics in the game can be particularly educative for children, who can become familiar with the basis of physics such as attracting and repelling forces and collisions of solid bodies.
