A breathtaking game for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad - PixYPHUS
Check out this fun game. I had a blast with it.
PixYPHUS - By Simon Alexander
Beauty and futility.
Pixyphus has been doomed to push a boulder up a mountain for eternity.
PixYPHUS is based on the Greek myth surrounding Sisyphus, who was condemned by Zeus to an eternity of pushing a boulder up a mountain as punishment for tricking the gods.
PixYPHUS is played by touching the left side of the screen to move Pixyphus left and the right side of the screen to move him right. It is only possible to move left if Pixyphus is pushing the boulder. If the player lets go of the screen, even for just a moment, the boulder will fall.
I look at this game as a living thing, and you can expect it to grow and change according to where my creativity resides.
