Geometric kaleidoscope-style screen saver.

Overview

Astral Blossom is a visually mesmerizing screen saver for Mac OS X available from Imaja, taking you on a journey through a lotus-like kaleidoscope. Beautiful color themes may now be selected by the user from tranquil earth tones to bright and vibrant visual elixirs. The drawing tempo, another new addition, lets you play with the effects allowing for an entire spectrum of inviting rhythms and modes.

Experiment with the petal count to create beautiful mandalas, alluring passion flowers, and many more inviting journeys through an infinite number of sacred geometrical patterns.

Astral Blossom is a great visual compliment to your music library, creating a shape-shifting trip through this transfixing tunnel of trance.

Jeez, tastes are NOT disputable, as is proven every day. But the previous reviewers who didn't appreciate this great saver remind me of that old phrase about pearls before swine... So, what's a screen saver for anyway, these days? Well, for me, it's eye candy, pure and simple and what I want is something that's even slightly entertaining, and not actually repellant after a few days. OK, I'm a painter and digital artist, and I like kaleidoscopes, and I'm over 45, so maybe this is simply designed for me...but if you can relate, Astral Blossom is a total, 5-star knock-out! After nearly a year of enjoying it, I STILL find it a first-class productivity killer and inspiration device. Hats off to the developer for discovering one of the fundamental algorithms of visual joy...

You must really have a huge ego from selling your other stuff. This wasn't even worth the download and I have many better free ones. Get a clue developer!
