Addictive, Beautiful, Innecto - now for macOS

17 February 2017 - 06:17 AM

Hello?  HELLO? (LLO, LO, Lo, lo)  Wow! It's quiet in here.  All the action seems to be in iOS gaming, and Mac gaming seems to have gotten very quiet of late.  Well, for all you Puzzlers in need of a Mac based fix to feed your cravings, 45RPM Software has some great news for you.

You may have read about the research, carried out several years ago, showing that a game of Tetris can help to block the worst symptoms of PTSD. If you haven't then I highly recommend taking a look at it here, it's very interesting (New Scientist)

2016 was a troubling year.  It started badly, with the deaths of several iconic musicians (and, for me, a good friend), and then got steadily worse.  Right now it feels like the whole world could do with a game of Tetris!

I can't offer you a game of Tetris to ease you through 2017 - so instead I'll offer you my own PTSD ameliorant.  It's a puzzle game called Innecto - and it starts off easily enough before getting really difficult.  

Innecto, the addictive puzzle game from 45RPM Software, has made the jump from iOS to the Mac.  And, just to show you how much we love the Mac, we've even given it its own icon, UI and mouse pointer - rather than hurriedly copying the iOS design and pushing it out as 'job done'.

There are more than 100 levels and each one is calculated by the computer so no two games will be the same - giving Innecto great replay value. The game design, code, tile graphics, and segment typeface are all the work of Pascal Harris (45RPM Software) and the music and sound design is the work of Richard Hanson (Highfish Recordings) with additional music production by David Jamieson.

If you'd like to review Innecto (or any other 45RPM Software) in print or on your blog, please get in touch at support@45rpmsoftware.com and a promo code will be raised for you.

Innecto: Available for iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad Now

13 December 2016 - 05:52 AM

I'm very excited to announce that Innecto is available for iOS now, from the App Store.

Research shows that too much sugar not only rots your teeth but rots your mind as well, making it hard to concentrate. Put the candy to one side and give your brain a real workout with Innecto.

Let Innecto lull you into a false sense of security and confidence. Itís so easy - itís so relaxing. Those little tiles twist so satisfyingly into place as you race against the clock to complete each board in the least time with the least number of moves. By the time you get to level 56 youíll be whizzing through (although those little tiles can be a little fiddly on the iPhone) and thenÖ oh no! Level 57 has a nasty surprise in store - can you get all the way to the end?

You can read more about Innecto here - and see screenshots and video from the beta versions of the game (I'll update them soon, I promise!)

A version for the Mac will (fingers crossed!) be available for macOS soon.
