IMG Gets Tranquil
3:05 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review today of Tranquility, the interesting and non-violent game from TQWorld. This very colorful 3D experience is available as a demo, so if you haven't tried it out before be sure to grab the application from Macgamefiles. Here's a clip from the review to give you an idea what it's like:

Your ultimate goal is to find the “spinner” on each level that will transport you to the next level. After finding seven spinners, you move to the next “level”. You bounce in this virtual environment and use gravity to bounce higher yet in quest of the spinner. There are OpenGL rendered pulsing and moving platforms all around you which can be used to help (or hinder) your quest.

Controls are quite simple. Simply move your mouse/trackball in the direction that you want to go (ie forward or back, turn left or right). By holding down the spacebar, you engage a “brake” which slows your upward momentum. The harder you fall, the harder you bounce back up.

Tranquility definitely falls under Apple's slogan of 'think different,' so be sure to check it out after reading our review.
