The DiscoveryBeat Apps contest is now closed, and developer Bitforge has taken home the grand prize with their iPhone game, ORBITAL. As such, Bitforge will attend the DiscoveryBeat event on Dec. 8 at Automattic Lounge on Pier 38 in San Francisco. To register for DiscoveryBeat, get tickets here.
ORBITAL is a 1-thumb experience with a simple goal: score points by destroying orbs. A simple puzzle game for all with beautiful visual effects, it can be played in short sessions and is highly addictive. A simple concept to rack your brains and nerves. ORBITAL is already positioned in the top download lists of the App Store and prominently featured by Apple. According to VentureBeat, the physics-embued game has had modest sales of 27,000 to date since its launch on Sept. 19, so it is truly an undiscovered gem. The average user has played for 5.5 hours, with some users topping 100 hours.
The DiscoveryBeat contest runners-up include: Tilt: An Adventure in 1.5 Dimensions (byXEODesign), Today Todo Pro (by Spielhaus), FaceFighter (by Appy Entertainment), and AlwaysOnPC (by Xform Computing).
