Watch the YouTube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4LldZ5XXN0 to see it in action.
- Watch as up to 10,000 particles dance around your screen
- Control the particles simply by moving your device
- Touch the screen to bring the particles to your finger
- Release a finger press to slow down and scatter the particles
- Soothing color shifting
- Automatically selects the maximum number of particles for a smooth performance
You can also use pinch to zoom (in and out) and shake the phone on two axis to scatter the particles.
To get to the main menu, just press the "back" button.
The entire program is written in C, using SDL2, so it is quite fast. If there is enough interest, I will also provide a desktop version and I'll add new features.
The reading storage permission is needed by SDL2 in order to be able to load/save the configuration.
Please help us work out the bugs by leaving feedback including your device model and benchmark scores. If we know the engine is working well on lots of devices that will really keep us motivated to get the game done!
Thanks for playing!
Key features of Magic Fluids:
- Highly configurable fluid behaviour and look
- 20 configuration presets - if you're lazy
- You can save your own presets
- Multitouch controls
- Smoke (gas) and water (liquid) animation
- Thousands of particles moving with the fluid
- You can pause the animation anytime and save screenshots
- You can use Magic Fluids as a regular app or as a Live Wallpaper
- Highly optimized, multiple quality settings for wide range of devices
Possibilities are endless, effects are fantastic.
Free version of Magic Fluids has two presets (out of ten), limited configuration options and doesn't allow to save screenshots. You can still use it as a Live Wallpaper though!
Check also my other fluid simulation app Waterfloo!
Magic Fluids allows for a great deal of customization. You can modify fluid type, color palette, how long it stays on the screen, when colors should change and much more.
Fluid alone is great, but it only gets better. Turn on particles and watch how they move with the fluid and emphasize it's motion. Particles have lots of configuration options as well - shape, size, color and more. You can have more than 15000 particles on the screen, but you better have a strong device if you want to do that!
Whatever configuration you come up with, it would be great to save it and use anytime later. That's what user presets are for - you can store ten fluid presets and load them with a single click!
Are you lazy and don't want to wade through lots of settings? You can use one of ten predefined fluid configurations and still experience a great diversity that Magic Fluids offers! Examples of existing presets are Floating Flames, Wavy Winter or Classy Combination.
Magic Fluids features two fluid animation methods:
- Smoke - classic gas simulation. Smoke is slow and steady. It's great when you want to slow down and relax
- Water - uncommon method that makes fluid behaviour more similar to liquid than gas. You can almost feel the pressure propagating through the water while you touch the screen. It's perfect when you want to create dynamic animations and images full of swirls and curls.
When you press the Menu Button (hardware button on older devices, three-dot button on newer ones) animation pauses. From there you can clear the screen, go to settings menu or save the screenshot to file on external storage (it goes to /Pictures/MagicFluids/ directory). Note that external storage (which usually means SD Card, but on some devices external storage is actually internal) must be available on your device. You can later use it as a wallpaper or show your friends what you can do with Magic Fluids!
There are different options for what happens when a particle hits the edge of the screen. Stop - The particle loses it's velocity from the direction it hit the screen. Bounce - The particle's velocity from the direction it hit the screen is reversed and it bounces off the edge. Continuous - The particle continues outside the screen and follows along the same path it would have, possibly reentering the screen. Multiply - The particle behaves like Bounce, but has a second particle created that Bounces in the opposite direction. (This can lead to many particles quickly which (Because of all the Math and Physics involved) can cause considerable lag. I put it in because it can give some cool effects if done right. I usually use few particles on very low gravity.)
Other features are Center Objects which will not be affected by the gravitational force of other objects on the screen, but will still act on the other objects. The two center objects are Sun and Black Hole. Each of their gravitational forces can be set individually, but only one Center Object can be on the screen at a time.
My favorite setting is the grid setting. It allows you to automatically place particles in symmetrical grids. You choose the rows and columns for the grid and hit add. For this one, something cool is to create a grid with all the particles having zero gravitational force, and have a center object with just a little.
One of my current plans for this are to create an option Tails sets an amount of smaller particles that appear in the last few positions of particles. (This has been added in version 1.14 :) )
Another is to create different settings for placing shapes of particles on the screen. Some examples would be a rectangle of particles, a circle, or a star. If there is something you would like in this app, then leave a comment. Who knows what could appear in the next update. :)
Also, the internet permissions is needed to load ads. Maybe this poor college student can make a buck or two from his hobby. :)
