Game is pretty easy. Took me about 1hr playtime to complete all the levels, spent another hour and a half increasing my high score on the hardest difficulty. Not that hard, but still a fun game that lets you show off to friends.

A game that ruthlessly makes you admit you're no longer a young man.
Also gives eye cancer.

10/10 would feel like ♥♥♥♥ again.

Fun lil game for short time periods.

When playing for more then 10 minutes in the dark it will desorient you.

Mouse has a problem that when pressing left and right at the same time it totally stops moving untill you let both buttons go and press either left or right again.

Very very hard and fun.

Good music and a classic score attack game, but if you like this you already own it.
Though there are some glaring issue of design, in my opinion. The system of moving your triangle around the hexagon works well enough but there is no feedback in the movement so the screen backgrounds rapidly accelerating and spinning makes it incredibly difficult to not overshoot or undershoot by just tapping the keys. The spinning of the screen as well is it's own problem as making things difficult to see is not a fun concept of challenge, merely difficulty created by poor design. In my opinion, throwing unrelenting challenges at you and then making them hard to differentiate, then make it purposefully hard to dodge said challenges on your own skill and knowledge of the patterns is not good design.

In short, any game where you have every pattern memorized and every movement known just to die because the screen decided to have a trip on a roundabout at 90MPH is not challenging, it's frustrating and not fun to overcome.

This game is really difficult and it's bright visuals only add to the madness. However it's really fun to play if you want a simple but challenging game. Just be warned that the visuals can be painful to look at sometimes, so don't play it in long sessions.

The objects I'm failing to avoid represent my gay thoughts. A deep and sombering experience with neon colours.

i remember the first time i played this game, it was around 2013. I had it on my Samsung Galaxy S1 when i was last year of high school. I used to play ♥♥♥♥ out of that game, every break i would play it, and people were like duuuude i feel like im high. I mostly just responded with yeah, ikr or so as the game is very hard and doesn't forgive mistakes, so you had to concentrate on the game. I remember the first time i beat the last level. I was in backseat we had math(i really hated math and still do), so i was playing it i won the last level i jumped up and yelled "♥♥♥♥ YES". Everyone was staring at me, my friends were facepalming, teacher was like can u repeat that? I said "Heck yeah". I was called into principal's office. It was all worth it.
I loved the game for the hardness and for the soundtrack, they were so good at the time, and they are still awesome. I love the game 10\10 would bang the ♥♥♥♥ out of this game
