Description


CiRCA6 (A GAME ABOUT CIRCLES) is a minimalist game about reflexes and strategy and circles, with a simple goal... survive as long as you can.

Navigate the screen using a single joystick to propel yourself forward, destroying endless waves of enemies with your wake.

What CiRCA6 may lack in geometric variety, it makes up for with finely tuned controls and exciting gameplay that will continually test your abilities.

This game is fun. The most apt description would be Spout + enemies and powerups. Basically your thrust is also your weapon and enemies converge from all angles. Weave around the growing hordes, fire back, collect powerups. The controls are solid and it feels satisfying to destroy enemies with your wake

Not sure how much attention this'll get releasing on the same night as a new Radiangames title, but CiRCA6 is a simple fun twitchy game

Oh wow I never noticed the 7.1 requirement, hope this isn't an issue for most people

Glad you like it! I was actually a huge fan of Spout a few months ago, definitely a big influence during CiRCA6's development

Great game! Just didn't realize if wasn't universal, was wondering if it could be made universal, or the controls to add an option to put the vstick on the left or right side.

Thanks!

First of all, very nice and addictive game. There's only one Suggestion I have.. For me the controls work in the wrong way. When I swipe down the dot goes up.. That's something I'm not getting used to. I'd like the dot go up when I swipe up, is it possible for the next update?

Thanks for the feedback! So that's something I considered but I also liked the idea of your wake propelling you forward, and from what I've seen so far once you get used to it it feels natural. If that's a common feeling though I'll definitely include it as an option in the next update!
