App Store - Nesen Probe

This is a little game I made over a year ago as an attempt to make something different. And also just trying out some techniques. Apparently it just looks too odd and has not had many takers, so I've made it free. No ads, nothing.

The idea is you have this sort of cyber/steampunk looking flying nose that you can move to inhale these mechanical orbs. Some orbs are good, and give you points and health, while the grey ones are bad and take health. The nose inhales and exhales, so you have to move and time the nose just right, because an exhale pushes the orbs away.



I didn't think it needed a background story, so gameplay is very simple and quick. I've since seen many, many ways it could be improved, but this was just a for fun project and I've never had time to get back to it. Enjoy! (I hope)

SPA... oh wait, we know you.

The nose is a little odd, but might be fun to try out!

I think it's very excellent how you are making these things, learning technique and all. My kids liked ticklestones!

That's great, thanks!

I would make that one free too, but it still brings in a few bucks a month (the Japanese seem to like it) and is pretty clearly described as a novelty (and rather useless) app.
