[prMac.com] Hong Kong - Mobile Software Limited is pleased to introduce Large Fruit Collider 1.0 for iOS, their new tunnel Game where players must use tilt/rotate control to guide fruit through the inside of the long, ring-shape vacuum pipe of the world's largest Fruit Accelerator. Fruit scientists will discover the secrets of juiciness and the effects of water, sugar, ice, and slime on the accelerating fruit. Featuring realistic, 3D wormhole graphics and animation, the game offers two modes of play, various levels of difficulty, and four different fruits.
The game includes two modes of play: Campaign or Quick Game. The Campaign mode has 20 levels of play and begins with an interactive tutorial. Gradually, the player moves through timed levels, each with their own objectives. On level 1 the goal is to simply survive for 50 seconds by tilting or rotating the iDevice to avoid obstacles inside the tunnel. During gameplay, readouts indicate remaining time, percent of juiciness (life) remaining, speed, and level number. Fortunately, when the orange hits an obstacle like a protruding duct or interior support, it splatters and loses some juiciness, but remains intact to continue traveling until time is up.
On succeeding levels, players learn that they can regain lost juiciness by colliding with a water droplet, but hitting an ice particle slows the fruit and reduces juiciness. Hitting a sugar crystal confers an advantage by adding speed, and bumping into slime reduces speed, but causes no loss of juiciness. Importantly, if all juiciness is lost, the level ends and must be repeated. Obstacles and power-ups are visible from a distance, so players have a few seconds to steer around or through onrushing solids. Slamming in to an obstacle at high speed can interfere with player control and cause the interior tunnel view to spin rapidly.
There are four different Quick Games, which feature three difficulty levels, play for points, and optional in-app purchases. In both modes, each fruit poses a different objective. For the Orange, the goal is just to survive until time runs out. For the Lemon, the goal is to achieve light speed by collecting sugar. For the Blackberry, the goal is to not go too fast by collecting slime. And for the Apple, players have to regain their juiciness to 120 % by collecting water.
