Octagon - A Minimal Arcade Game with Maximum Challenge
By Lukas Korba
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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?
“Octagon is like Temple Run but on steroids and with much cooler music and graphics. If you're a Temple Run or Impossible Road fan, you definitely want to check out Octagon for iPhone or iPad.” - Allyson Kazmucha, iMore
“Some of the most fun I’ve had with my iPhone this year.” - 9/10 Arcade Sushi
“Fast, tough game that doesn’t give a darn about your feelings. Go for it!” - 4/5 Cult of Mac
“If you love these impossible reflex games, then you don’t want to miss out on Octagon.” - 5/5 AppAdvice
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 the mad race through this trippy 8-sided tunnel. 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.
- Classic, Endless and NEW Daily mode
- 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

Wowwwwwwwwwwww! This is definitely the best game on app store! There are no ads popping up during the game. In fact, there are no ads anywhere in this game! I really cannot stop playing this game. Oh, something is missing. You should get a reward for that, for example coins or something and you can buy different colours for the octagon or you can change the theme of the game! Please do this in the next update. Apart from that, this game is ‘wow’! I really LOVE this game! It is amazing👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️!
Why am I wasting my life on this?
Technically this is a well written app, and graphically, it's nicely drawn. As a game, it lacks the things that great games need: escapism; a sensible learning curve; a reward for effort; great controls.
When a game causes stress rather than eliminating it there can be no escapism. The learning curve is vertical - this is essentially a memory game dressed up as an arcade game. The reward for your effort is another level the same as the one you've just completed. The controls aren't great as sometimes swipe direction is misinterpreted, and if you stray too close to the edge of the screen, you can inadvertently slide up iOS controls and ruin your game.
It's actually quite good
Not sure what problems people have with this game, I've played it and it's not bad at all. I like the level setting something that endless runners like temple run lack. I think it's a unique take on the endless runner genre and I think it's worth a try
