Harmonics and MTV have just announced the release of their new game for the iPod, Phase. Being the first large developer to use the iPod, Lead Producer Kasson Crooker is naturally very excited about the project; here is what he had to say about it:
“Our goal with Phase was to create a fundamentally accessible, casual music experience for iPod users where we implemented our years of work with rhythmic gameplay elements and present them in ways that any music fan can easily understand and have fun with. We wanted to create something that took users beyond the standard game format, tap into the unique design of the iPod, and give players a fresh, new way to deepen their relationship with their own music — the music they love.”
To play the game you only need an iPod nano with video, iPod classic or fifth generation iPod, an iTunes account and Phase. The game is available on the iTunes store for US$4.95. The game is controlled by clicking or sliding around the scroll wheel in one of the two game modes.
From the video we can see the game is looking amazing considering the iPod isn’t a dedicated gaming device. Check after the jump for a couple more screens.
