Pulse for Android tablets is finally available via Google Play, publisher Cipher Prime announced today. In announcing Pulse for Android, Cipher Prime said “we know a lot of our fans have been patiently waiting for our games to make it to their platform of choice. We love you and we always try to listen to you! If you have an Android tablet, we welcome you to an absorbing world where you are part conductor, part note-captor, and part multi-touch master.”
Pulse has been a featured iPad Game of the Week as well as the recipient of many accolades from the mobile gaming community. In Pulse for Android, much like its iPad kin, players enter an absorbing world where they become part conductor, part note-captor, part multi-touch master. Tap speeding notes as they cross the radiant pulse to conduct gorgeous original melodies.
Now, how about answering a few questions you may have about Pulse for Android, courtesy of Cipher Prime, the creators? First, can you create your own music for Pulse? “No, unfortunately. We agree that this would be very cool, but currently each level is handcrafted to fit the music, in order to optimize the gameplay experience. We are not, as of yet, considering writing the necessary code to extract levels from any song. As always, though, if you are interested in this sort of functionality let us know! We will take the amount of feedback we get about it into consideration.”
Second, can you get a copy of the Pulse soundtrack? “The Pulse: OST has 13 original Cipher Prime tracks available as a digital album. The tracks include the music from these levels: Tutorial, Straylight, Low Tide, Sakura, Porcelain Doll, Let’s Roll, Cinder, Cirrus, Orbital Drop, Catnip, High Roller, and Sahara, as well as the original song Pacemaker. We also have four free tracks that you can download in the Philly is Golden album, which contains original music by local Philadelphia artists such as Cooper and the Fantastic Machine, George & Jonathan, Ghost Fight, and Zilla Persona.”
Third, can you see a video of the game in action? Sure, here you go:
With Pulse for Android tablets, iPad owners will have to share the rhythm-based spotlight for a while. Tough!
