Zilm: a game of reflex is a game inspired by minimalist architecture, dreams, and the inner ability in all of us to think clearly and logically. Every level made was to bring out creativity to the fullest while implementing unique game mechanics and features. The intent was not to just be about reflex and speed, but to have a special atmosphere influenced by minimalism and ambient music. This way the player feels more immersed in the game and their mind can briefly escape from the real world. Only ones with the greatest of reflexes and quickest minds will prevail.

The game may look simple, but sometimes simple looking games turn out to be some of the best and most entertaining games out there. And honestly, don't let it fool you, it can be one of the most terribly addicting and frustrating games out for mobile gaming.

The design is very interesting. As stated above, the look is simple: a couple of blobs/colored balls -- or to be gamingly correct, “orbs”, against a backdrop that varies depending on the game mode that is selected. The object of the game is to destroy colored orbs (objectives change each level), avoiding traps and obstacles along the way. In the game’s tagline, it clearly states that it is a game of reflex, and this is no joke. Tricks like reversal, which change the effects of the orbs from good to bad and vice versa really make you think. Also, while you play a level, a quick moving orb (of a certain color) sweeps across the screen and is worth a lot of points, which could essentially save you during the game. Miss it, and your opportunity to achieve a high score or even pass to the next level may have just trickled away. Other modes available: Survival, Infected, Defense. They all have their own sets of rules which put a very interesting twist on the game.

@Skaldic Games Oh, it is a Desura key, and it is marked as a KISS Ltd game now, problem is on KISS side, you should contact Desura to pull it and publish by yourself.

@gfw2012 Yea, I have NEVER been in contact with them, and never gave them permission to sell this game. KISS Ltd has also been stealing our rights to this game as well. Not sure if those two companies are connected or not.

Будет достаточно интересно попробовать себя в роли клетки. Да и тема игры достаточна интересна для меня.
