Take a spacewalk as ‘VON’ the curious CosmoBot and float amongst the dazzling celestial wonders of the Universe as you travel through the rainbow portals of time and hyperspace to an extraterrestrial symphony of sound and brilliant colour.
‘VON’ is an intergalactic mobile tapping game designed and produced by award-winning Canadian Filmmaker CJ Wallis, and features music from renowned hip-hop producer Harry Fraud.
VON is a CosmoBot who sets off on an adventure through the stars to discover what might be beyond the outer orbits.
Travelling past planets at 3.1 million miles per second, Von can float for 180 million miles before requiring a recharge from orbiting energy tanks.
Coming into contact with a colourful tank will trigger a Stargate sequence, rendering VON invincible to Planetary Patrolmen and previously dangerous pieces of an asteroid.

FLOAT FOR ALL – Designed as a simple, single level tapping game for all ages and skill levels, ‘VON’ encourages relaxation and brain synchronization by combining traditional, rhythmic gameplay and sound resonance as players tap and float through the colourful vastness of Space with the accompaniment of specially curated sound programs and tones to encourage overall relaxation, focus and calm.
GAMING OPTIONS – ‘VON’ allows users to relax and float peacefully through the solar system, or competitive players have the opportunity to develop their own strategy and do their best to compete for the highest score before VON reaches the end of his journey and encountering the secret ‘Kill Screen,’ paying homage to popular game-ending ‘glitches’ in competitive classics such as Donkey Kong and Pac-Man.
