Not quite future proof

Product: Futuridium EP
Format: iPhone, iPad
Futuridium EP is a game about fine lines. On one hand there's the tiny margins of error between a successful run and a catastrophic failure, and between weaving through the game's slab-like architecture and crashing into it.
And then there's the tiny gap between agonising frustration and glorious victory that the game trades on. Part excruciating pain, part delicious triumph, it's here that the game just gets its balance slightly wrong.
Tough first EP
The aim of the game is to pilot a spaceship over a series of levels. Scattered around these levels are some blue boxes that you need to destroy. Once you've shot them all a final node appears. Shoot that and you move on to the next level.
A tasking and entertaining arcade blast, Futuridium EP is let down by its occasionally inaccurate controls
