Developed by Austin native ByteSized Studios, Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider has players (a.k.a. Physicists) explore all the elements in the Periodic Table though frantic arcade gameplay. With a quick flick, players direct their atoms toward hot plasma—gaining (or losing) energy in the process. The goal is to amass enough energy to attain fusion and level up to the next exciting element.
A finalist in the 2013 Captivate Conference, Atomic Fusion introduces players to the mysteries of Quantum Physics with stunning, fluid graphics and a thumping trance music soundtrack. Swiping with either thumb controls the atom; a quick tap with the opposite hand switches between matter (blue) and antimatter (orange). Gathering atomic energy through matching colors allows Physicists to fuse a new element. However, mixing matter with antimatter will quickly deplete the atom of energy.
Power-ups including Bullet Time (slow motion) and Quantum Barrier (shield) will materialize from time to time—and can be activated on contact. Power-ups remain active for a limited number of seconds – hopefully just enough time to prevent energy loss! As a last resort, it’s possible to charge up electrons and then release them in a life-saving explosion that eliminates all plasma waves from the screen.
Getting through the Periodic Table is daunting, sure—but discovering all-new elements is where the real challenge lies. Soon, the first Physicist to do so will actually be able to name their discovery in-game for all to see. Now that’s something you don’t see every day in mobile gaming
“The invisible world of Quantum Physics doesn’t always have to be a black-and-white illustration,” says Stephen Varga, chief operating officer and co-founder of ByteSized Studios. “With Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider, we wanted to show that particles and electrons are not abstract concepts; they’re real just like you and me—and they have a beauty of their own. Atomic Fusion will shatter your expectations of atoms and plasma waves in the first 10 seconds of gameplay.”
• An enormous quantum playground: 118 elements to fuse
• Become a legend: Each Physicist that discovers Elements 119 and beyond gets to name it!
• Built for competitive Physicists: Place your name in the global leaderboards and earn some bragging rights
• Controls to fit every play style: 3 control schemes to suit right-handed and left-handed players – including the (lucky) ambidextrous
• Achievements Galore: Unlock all the secrets of the (in-game) universe!
• Everlasting challenge: Exponential difficulty equals infinite replayability
Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider can be played for free up until Element 10, Neon. After that, ByteSized Studios hopes that players won’t think twice about unlocking the rest of the 118 elements for a very reasonable $1.99.
