Tactical Shooter

Music of the Spheres is a puzzle-shooter about bouncing bullets, Islamic art, and sound. In it you can fire bullets which bounce, and when they bounce, a specific glockenspiel note is played.

That simple premise gives rise to a lot of strategies, and the levels are designed to bring those strategies out. The way they do that is more “puzzle” than “shooter” - the game does not require many reflexes or risks. It just requires thoughtfulness and precision. It is intended express things concisely, and wordlessly - you do not have to be able to speak any language in order to play this game.

“There’s a beauty in the apparent simplicity of the design, which like much that is contemplative is far more complex than it first appears. It’s somehow reassuring to play a puzzle game that is entirely disinclined to frustrate, hoping to create mindful, soothing spaces instead.” ~Adam Smith, Rockpapershotgun

Any plans for a demo? Your game plays really, really well and I'll include it in my next months thread of Indie Games:http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=532236, but usually games with at least a free demo get way more attention.

The "include level editor in the game" thing is I think most often done w/puzzle games. Perhaps because they have consistency? No bosses etc 19hours 8mins ago
Until Portal came out, I suppose the best puzzle games *in the public eye* were the Mario vs Donkey Kong games 19hours 47mins ago
@mvandevander Actually I think Nano Pandas is better! And I need to replay Hundreds. Aug 18 2014, 12:04pm

"Cut the Rope" is a pretty damn good game; of all the app store zillion-sellers I hope it'll be the best-remembered. Aug 18 2014, 8:54am
Slide from a lecture I'm giving: people I think are worth being aware of if you care about expressive game design T.co Aug 17 2014, 6:52am
For some reason a bunch of harebrained mystics have started fetishizing double toruses, making it difficult to research them! Aug 15 2014, 9:19am
@jimtodd64909 More extreme cases of what happened to your picture T.co Aug 15 2014, 6:03am
@MiegakureGame Very interesting, and potentially a source of game design techniques - we have our own version of that thin-path thing. Aug 15 2014, 5:46am
