Duet is a game that asks players simply to navigate two orbiting spheres past an increasingly complex maze of falling obstacles. As the difficulty increases, the tension mounts, and a peculiar narrative unfolds. Developed by Kumobius, with soundtrack by Tim Shiel, for iPad and iPhone.

"Although the game might be great, the soundtrack is spectacular. As contemporary as it is, taking advantage of electronic music's current scope of sounds, it also harkens back to video game soundtracks of the pre-millennium with needling synths, thunderous whooshes of noise, and an eerie atmosphere - it's almost symphonic in how clean and elaborate it sounds. Shiel's soundtrack for Duet comes out sounding as innovative as the game it scores." - Jake Cleland, The Vine
"Tim Shiel's outstanding soundtrack effortlessly sells the mood. I'd be better at Duet if I could play without sound, but that would be too great a waste. It's not that the soundtrack outshines the game, but it does stand alone—quite beautifully." Nissa Campbell, Touch Arcade
