Get Refraction 2 on your iPad devices

refraction2_screen1Kicking off our week, we are pleased to announce Refraction 2 is now available on iPad devices. One of our favorite fraction games at the Center, the original Refraction won the Grand Prize in the Disney Learning Challenge at SIGGRAPH 2010. Set with a space theme, Refraction 2 challenges players to use their knowledge of fractions to bend, shape, and power lasers to free lost animals trapped in spaceships.

Look for other great CGS titles to hit the app store soon – and don’t worry Android users – we’re working on a version for you too.

Right now, the App store has it under “Animation Research Labs”, but don’t worry – we’re getting that fixed, and it’s definitely a CGS title!
