App Description

Particle Panic is a fast-paced, puzzle-arcade game where you take the role of a mad scientist running an even madder experiment to harness energy from a new, potentially-limitless power source. The interaction of your exawatt-class laser with the spacetime continuum causes quarks to spontaneously appear out of the seething quantum vacuum. Combine groups of particles and balance their color, electric charges and spins to get them to annihilate and release energy. Collect enough energy to advance to the next level. Create new particles with the properties you need by adding existing particles. The experiment doesn't come without some kind of danger, of course. Confine your quark-gluon plasma within the walls of your reactor chamber by keeping its temperature down. Detonate nukes, create time warps and spawn black holes to keep the particle flux under control. If things get too hot, it will breach the containment vessel. The results would be catastrophic!
