Named "A multitouch marvel" by EDGE Magazine and "A multitouch masterpiece" by Touch Arcade, this award-winning space game shook the Earth with its playful use of multitouch, and its stylish, fluid and abstract audiovisual design.

You're in charge of a universe where planets can be blended together into giant orbs or split into dwarf planets, and where a simple set of rules enable a large variety of different landscapes and gameplay styles.

This is a fast-paced and challenging puzzle game that will push your boundaries as a player for quite a while, and as Pocket Gamer put it, "Eliss is every bit as bold and fresh as Pong, Pac-Man or Tetris were when they first came out."
