I'm beginning to notice a pattern that repeats almost every time I start playing a really great new iPhone game. After getting past the splash screen, checking out the available settings, and firing up the tutorial, I get this feeling like a mini gut-punch. And accompanying it is the vague thought, "Shit. Why didn't I think of this?"
Of course ideas are just ideas. It's the execution that matters, and Berlin's own Canupa has done an excellent job with Omicron. Beautifully design, impeccable sounds and perfect responsiveness all really bring the simple arcade-style multitouch concept to life.
