5/5 Brutal Loop is the closest I've come to insanely throwing my iPad at a wall since I played Super Hexagon. Dom Conlon, Game developer: Astro Trainer

Brutal Loop is an adrenalin-fuelled action game which will test your reactions and sense of rhythm.

Less than 2% of players can complete this game. Can you?

Gameplay is simple. You control a Loop which needs power. To power the Loop you must fill all the cells of the Loop, in the correct order. Thats it!


*How to play*

Tap anywhere on the screen when the sweep arm is over the highlighted cell in the Loop. Correctly timing your tap fills the cell.

If you miss the target cell the first time, the Loop starts to lose power. Miss it a second time, you die.

You die if you tap the screen when the sweep arm is over a filled cell.

You die if you tap the screen when the sweep arm is over a cell which is not highlighted.

A level is 3 stages of the same colour and game mode. If you complete the level perfectly, you get a quick-fire bonus stage. Hit as many cells as you can before the timer runs out. Anyone who can get them all gets a BIG BONUS!!

-Universal app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

Just what I need, another twitchy reflex-shredding throw-your-device-out-the-window kind of game

Funnily enough, I saw this and hoped you'd see it! Consider it payback for getting me hooked on Boson X :P

Will definitely be picking this up when I get some $$, the screenshots and details makes this sound like the Super Hexagon version of 1800 or Gauge

Oh god this game is BRUTAL.

Basically, you tap the screen when the dial points at the highlighted block. That's it!

The presentation is superb, and there are infinite continues it seems, but each usage seems like it has a score penalty. Not sure how the scoring mechanics are implemented, but it seems like a good complicated one.

Im the only player in the world right now, and of course, am ranked NUMBER 1!!! OMG!!!

Hmmm, tough call, graphics don't look too impressive, but game looks like fun. Guess I will have to wait for a video to determine if I buy.

Kinda like 1800... havent played Guage to make comparisons.

If in 1800 you have to guess for the right position to tap, here, you have to tap at the right moment, provided by a visual clue.

The simple mechanics is further enhanced by a huge variety of sequences.

It seems each level is the same, and you are scored for each correct tap you make, and an instant game over on a miss-tap. When you continue, you lose a significant amount off your current score, and continue playing. There are 5 continues available, using up all 5 will take you back to the previous level, and it gives you a fresh set of 5 continues.

Basically, the more continues you use, the less your total score will be.
