Droidscape: Basilica -- electropunk puzzle game coming this month to iPhone / iPad

Indie studio Kyttaro Games is pleased to announce the imminent iPhone / iPad release of Droidscape: Basilica, an action puzzler with stop-motion animated graphics and unique gesture-based controls. The game has been submitted to Apple and is expected to release on the App Store before the end of July.

Game details and screenshots are available from the game's official website, which launched today:


  • Sweeping Sci-Fi Story: Droidscape: Basilica is a unique puzzle game set in a grim electropunk future. In the year 4057, a power-hungry Ecclesiarchy has plunged humanity into a new Dark Ages. One of few remaining Chronomancers dedicated to preserving the secrets of time-travel has been taken hostage on the gargantuan Basilica space station, and if he dies, an already dark world will get a lot darker. Only a small, unarmed droid named Bishop 7 can save him -- and only with your help.
  • Action Puzzle Gameplay: In each of Droidscape: Basilica's 60 levels, players must navigate around patrolling enemy droids, grabbing gems and keys needed to proceed. First, use strategy to plot Bishop 7's course across a room. Then, manipulate time to transport the droid safely across the room with a mix of reflexes and problem solving skills.
  • Stop-Motion Animated Graphics: Kyttaro Games has approached Droidscape: Basilica like an interactive work of art, teaming up with visual artist Hariton Bekiaris who hand modeled the characters in clay and painstakingly animated them using stop-motion technology.
  • Head-Tracking Controls: On iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 5, and newer, Droidscape: Basilica supports Kyttaro's groundbreaking "HeadTwister" technology, using the front-facing camera to turn the game into a hands-free, head-tracking, gesture-based experience. For players with earlier devices or who prefer hands-on play, Droidscape: Basilica also has tactile touch controls.
