Finally!

I am happy to announce that Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary is available for free on the App Store for iPhone/iPad . This is a very special moment since it was the first game we worked on at SoMa Play when the company started back in 2013. The game was developed using Unity , a cross-platform game engine/platform/editor.

Today we finally release the official Shadertoy.com app for iOS devices! Now you can view the best shaders from Shadertoy.com and share them with the rest of the world. The app was developed by @skumancer (Ricardo Chavarria) and Beautypi (Inigo Quilez and Pol Jeremias). 

Download it here

If you want to know more about the app and how it was created read after the screenshots :

Behind the Scenes

Why did we created an app? Because the browser on iOS devices does not (yet) support WebGL. Since we created a native app from the ground up it allowed us to use native OpenGL.

The inspiration to build our app came from the beautiful Weather app created by Yahoo :
