You are trapped inside the Octagon, a megaplex of hallways, platforms, and gaps—and the clock is running. Can you survive the mad race through this trippy 8-sided tunnel?

"My fingers hurt, it's f*#@ing fast!" - Michael, tester
"A mad race on LSD." - Martin, tester
"I hate this game! Why the hell is it so difficult?!" - Paul, tester

Octagon is a minimal arcade game where you have to move fast or be left behind. As the floor moves beneath you, spin your world around to dodge speed bumps. Flip upside-down to avoid holes, surf on top of the Octagon—whatever you can do to survive. An energizing soundtrack by Sqeepo and psychedelic color bursts keep you in the zone on your race to the finish. But with each round over after just 60 seconds, only super-fast reflexes will beat this very challenging game.

Features:
- Unlimited number of randomly generated levels
- Dynamic procedural graphics with a minimalistic iOS7 look
- Original soundtrack by Sqeepo
- Universal App with iCloud syncing
- Pure challenge with no in-app purchases or cheats

I beta tested this. I'm really enjoying it. The swipe controls work extremely well and I never felt like a death was the game's fault, rather my lack of skills. The music and minimalist style is very nice. The game can be quite challenging and you'll have to study the track and orient yourself in moments.

And about the 60 seconds rounds, the game is level based, not endless.

As much as I like Boson X, and this isn't a knock against it, one thing I don't like about it is that there's a big chance element in that depending on where you start you may or may not get a lot of blue tracks to get past the level easier or harder.

Hope this has less of that luck and more just on skill.

This has a really nice look to it. I enjoyed other recent games of similar models. I will most likely pick this one up tomorrow.
