You bend the ribbon and the ribbon bends you.

Orbyss is a mesmerizing, beautiful, and challenging action game for iOS. You must navigate a twisting ribbon ever further into the void. Though Orbyss has easy one-button controls, maneuvering the ribbon is quite tricky. It always travels in an arc, clockwise or counterclockwise. Touching the screen merely changes its direction. With this simple input and the right timing, you can trace any path you need. Beyond the controls, you will be challenged by the the use of depth and perspective. The game feels at once expansive and flat. This tension between rendering style and physical depth along with the ever present subtle shifts in point of view work to diminish a comfortable grasp of space. How far can you writhe into the abyss?
