Oo by Rainbow Train, coming Feburary 2014, minimalist twitchy action

Saw this on Pocker Gamer
http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Andro...ws.asp?c=56225

It's essentially the minimalist Super Hexagon version of Ring Run Circus.

Rainbow Train's Oo is a minimalist arcade game in which you control the fate of a small triangle that is travelling through a gauntlet made up of a series of circles.

The triangle constantly spins around the inside of these circles. By tapping the screen, you cause it to move to the outside of them. With the right timing, you can move the triangle across the circles, one at a time.

Anyway, that's the easy part. In later levels, Rainbow Train adds lethal touch-sensitive spikes to these circles. Static spikes, spinning spikes, timed spikes... Oo has them all.

We'll have to wait until February 2014 to see if Oo represents a marked improvement over Ring Run Circus. Oo will be available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Hi! Did you try the latest update (version 1.2)?

The ring change mechanic was heavily modified which makes playing it a lot easier. There are a lot of additional changes towards that goal (ej. crashing does not make you lose stars).

In any case I would love to hear why it didn't work for you so we can learn and not make the same mistakes in the future! Feel free to DM me.

Thanks!
