Wiki

Auditorium is a music-based puzzle game developed by Cipher Prime. Originally released as a Flash game in April 2008, Auditorium was later released for iOS devices and then the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PSP in 2010.

In Auditorium, the player uses various game mechanics to bend streams of light particles to fill audio containers. As each of the audio containers is filled, an audio channel introducing an instrument or sound is added to the game's music. In most levels, the audio containers are a variety of colors which the particle stream must match in order to fill it. The player changes the color of the stream by manipulating it over fixed areas of the level which dye the particles as they pass through them. The goal of each level is to direct and split the stream in such a way that each audio container is filled simultaneously, revealing the level's full soundtrack.

A variety of control points are available to the player, each of which modifies the trajectory of the particle stream in a certain way. In each level, the player is given a set selection of control points which they place in certain positions in the level. These controls include:

  • The Directional Control accelerates the particle stream toward a set direction.
  • The Attraction Control attracts the particle stream towards it.
  • The Repulsion Control repels the particle stream away from it.
  • The Rabbit Control energizes the particles, increasing their speed.
  • The Deflect Control reflects the particles along a straight line which the player can adjust the angle of to change direction.

With the exception of the Deflect Control, the player can also adjust the strength of each control by increasing its size.

Some levels also contain obstacles which affect the trajectory of the particle stream. The player cannot interact with obstacles so must instead use the tools available to overcome them in some way. These obstacles include:

  • Dividers which split the particle stream in two.
  • Blackholes attract destroy particles which touch them but can also be used strategically in a similar way to the Attraction Control.
  • Portals provide a connection between two points in a level. Particles that enter one portal leave the corresponding portal at the same speed and angle that they entered.

A Musical and Truly Exceptional Experience
So at one time I was streaming through a list of indie games, and no matter how many times I felt uninterested, I kept looking at the title: Auditorium HD. To merger my curiosity, I had to check this game out from other sites. And thus, I had an urge to buy Cipher Prime's award-winning indie title.            Presentation:      Auditorium starts off directly at the puzzle selection, whereas they come in different sets of soundtracks …
