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?
"Fast, tough game that doesn't give a darn about your feelings. Go for it!" - 4/5 Cult of Mac

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.
- Unlimited number of randomly generated levels
- Dynamic procedural graphics with a minimalistic iOS7 look
- Original soundtrack by Sqeepo
- iCloud syncing (with iOS version too)
- Pure challenge with no in-app purchases or cheats

Killer game! - One more proof that it’s still possible to come up with simple yet original and totally addictive game concepts. I caught myself thinking, as I hit ‘left' instead of ‘up’ once again, that Octagon would be perfect for use in neurophysiology labs, to study the brain’s learning mechanisms. As you go through each level, in the first part, which you are familiar with, your memory circuits override your reflexes, and after you pass your previous best, it’s pure reflexes and interaction of visual and motor systems… I mean, that’s obviously true of many games, but Octagon has such clean graphics and so few distractions from the core game mechanic that these sort of interactions in the brain should be pretty isolated and easy to study. Well, maybe - speaking just as a reflecting monkey here, not as a neurophysiologist... On a different note, music-wise I like the anthem-y first track, but the poppier second and third tracks don’t really do it for me in this game. That’s just me though.
STILL crashes - I used to play this game all the time up til the last two updates. Keeps crashing on me. This most recent time, like the reviewer said before me, it took a few more seconds to crash than it normally would.. so there’s a minor improvement there. I hope they find out what the problem is. Its sad because it’s such a gorgeous puzzle game.

My whole school loves this game - My school just got macooks this year and we were told we could download this game its great all the people at my school play it i highly recomend you download this game
Good Game. - They only show you the controls once, so pay attention.
SOMETHING IS WRONG!!! - I absolutely love this game, but there is something wrong with the software. Recently, the game just quit. Whenever I try to play it,it is always a blackout, and a notification shows up and states there is something wrong. I really would like to get back to playing this game,so I hope the problem is fixed soon.
love this game but there was an awful glitch... - So I got addicted to this awesome game and I got all the way up to level 126, but for some reason I would get sent back to level 120 when I switch wifi networks. Then one day, I went to play octagon on my school wifi and it glitched and SENT ME BACK TO LEVEL 0!!!! even when I went home, the levels wouldn’t come back…. so I literally am going insane now because I can’t keep playing on level 126. I tried to use the level switch option but it still only recognized that I had completed 0 levels… I actually cried. So anyone who wants to play octagon beware, if this happens to you, it will ruin your sanity……lol
crap - it’s not working for me
