Note: This game was made specifically for iPad. Due to the smaller available surface and the need to use extensive multitouch, it may be difficult to complete some levels playing on an iPad Mini for those with larger hands. For those with smaller hands (kids in particular) the game will be easier on an iPad Mini, due to the smaller spans required.
What reviewers are saying:
"... the sheer uniqueness of the game experience is difficult to resist. Panopticon engages not just the mind, but the whole body." --- Slide To Play (8/10)
* Take your time to plan your approach to a level. Consider your initial finger placement carefully- this can be crucial to completing a level successfully. Even the placement of the iPad can be important.
* Once you've "picked up" a disk, you can slide your finger away from the disk, even if you haven't picked up all disks- this can help you to pick up multiple disks more easily and is crucial in boss battles and speed mode.
* You can release disks briefly to swap fingers, but be quick or they'll get away from you
* Get inventive- we'd love to hear of interesting approaches to solving levels
* For kids: try having two kids work co-operatively to solve more difficult levels.
