Did you know that there is an actual disorder that causes people to see color when certain auditory tones are heard? Known as Synesthesia, it only affects about 1 in 2000 people worldwide, and has different levels of severity. It’s an astounding condition that a majority of us do not have, however we now have the opportunity to experience it thanks to developer Alex Dantis and the people over at Adorable Scapegoats.
Synesthetic takes the music stored on your various iOS devices to another level. As the background tunes play, you are taken on a psychedelic journey – spinning and turning though an assortment colors as the vibrations of your song thrum in the distance – your job: to dodge the entities that block your way and keep the flow of your ride going strong.
Each song you play, from whatever genre that you prefer, provides a new experience and Synesthetic – which boasts a frame rate of 60 fps, promises vivid colors to mesmerize and capture your attention.
Synesthetic is available on all 3rd generation Apple devices and above and holds three different game modes for all your various songs. For those of you who still can’t quite master the device tilting control that most App games have (yes, I am guilty of that issue) you also have the ability to turn on a joystick control. There are also additional features that a competitive gamer will enjoy – every song you play has its own leaderboard and there is a whole list of achievements that are available and unlockable through GameCenter integration.
Synesthetic is set to rock the App Store on July 19th. For more information on the game or the developer, check out the official website.
