Hello,

We would like to introduce Batonic, a dynamic 2D physics arcade for Android

It is a challenging and addictive arcade game — an entirely new concept! Prop the baton on the tip of your finger and deflect hordes of creatures that perish but keep attacking you. Resist changing winds and gravity, deflect and disintegrate the creatures (bouncing, sticking, exploding) that fall from the sky trying to strike you off balance.

No rules or story to learn: play in seconds, lose your first baton in minutes, and keep steadily mastering it for hours! It's only the sky, your bright baton balancing at the tip of your finger, and throngs of silly creatures that make the already challenging act of baton twirling outright insane. But every Day, the world changes in strange ways — remain agile and alert to survive!

Made with: Java, Android Studio, LibGDX, Box2D, Inkscape, MMA, Audacity

Release date for Android: July 24, 2016

Free download on Google Play Store

Thanks! It started as a toy program in Python that we made to teach our son the basics of programming. After we recognized the potential of the idea, we upgraded from Python+Pygame to Java, Google's Android Studio, LibGDX with Box2D for physics... and spent an insane amount of time in Inkscape creating graphics and in MMA writing the music :)

Yes, very nice! I left a review on Google Play :) The only problem is that the grey area (with the countdown or game over buttons) looks pushed a way to the top on my phone...

Version 3 of Batonic is now on in Google Play Store!

What's new :

  • By popular demand, we completely redesigned the complexity of all Batonic levels, so as to make the game more accessible and engaging for players of all ages and skills. No more of the boring, too-easy-too-long levels — but also no more so-difficult-as-to-be-almost-impassable monstrosities! (Well... maybe except the final Day 10!) Overall, the game of Batonic is much more dynamic and fun in this version.

  • A number of visual tweaks make the Batonic creatures even more funny and weird!

  • Several bug fixes.
