The Journey Home

Impulse is a gravity-based science fiction game requiring finesse and no shortage of clever thinking. Pull back on the screen to initiate an impulse, navigate obstacles, and retry until you get it just right. Keep an eye on your oxygen levels, collect missiles, dodge asteroids, and don’t drift off into space!

Written in Objective-C, Impulse utilizes SpriteKit's powerful physics simulators for gravity fields, collision detection, teleportation, and projectiles. Custom-built gesture interaction makes pullback and launch feel natural and familiar, while SKS particle emitters create unique explosions and shatter effects.

Impulse: The Journey Home is available now in the App Store.
