Which game is the next "Super Hexagon"?

So I recently got re-addicted to Super Hexagon.

Now I was wondering, are there any other quality games with a similar vibe?

I don't mean the specific rotating/dodging mechanic or art style. I talking about the game's overall feeling.

Graphics or story are unimportant, simple to play, fun and rewarding in short bursts, hard as hell but addictive, gameplay that tests reflexes and timing.

The only recent game that I'd say falls in this category is 1800. Any other upcoming games or already released games? Any games that could be called the "Super Hexagon" of 2013?

I wouldn't say it deserves such a title, but the recently released Slayin certainly plays something like that.

Actually I was interested in this game, but was hesitant when I saw the screenshots. The controls take up half the screen, and the area showing gameplay seems really small. Just seems off-putting and distracting

1800 is absolutely phenomenal.
