Description

Discover O is a deceptively simple and hypnotic up-down-left-right game that challenges players' reflexes and color coordination. Set in vibrant minimalist worlds inspired by our favourite destinations around the globe, Discover O is equal parts addictive and inspiring. Discover O asks the player to swipe the centre O up, down, left or right to match it to the right color. The difficulty increases as the colour of the rotating walls around the O start to converge and mimic each other. As the player continues, the O shrinks at an increasing speed so the user must move quicker with every correct swipe. Swipe successfully to discover minimalist expressions of San Francisco, Goa, Patagonia, Australia and Space. P.S. - BYOF's high score is 310 :) Disclaimer: Discover O becomes infinitely more difficult if you are colour blind. BYOF Studios is sorry!

History

Discover O came from BYOF Studio's love of playing casual pick up and play games like 2048, Stick Hero and Fists of Fury. What started off as a just an experiment of a new game mechanic, turned into the full development of a casual game with an added dimension. They loved beating their high scores, but wanted more from the game for giving it so much of their time. They wanted something that would build over time, something that would reward them for the time spent in the game in addition to just the high score. Sound famiiliar? Discover O is their attempt to give user's this experience.

Features

  • Go beyond the high score: Five different worlds to explore and unlock
  • Simple to learn - swipe up, down, left or right
  • Beautiful minimal soundtrack made in the heart of Bombay
  • Compete with friends on leaderboards!
  • Pro tip: You can swipe anywhere on the screen to move the O
