[prMac.com] Prague, Czech Republic - Octagon is a new minimal arcade game in the style of Super Hexagon and Boson X that evolves this emerging genre with fluid controls, trippy graphics, and a frantic pace. Designed for players looking for quick, intense bursts of action, Octagon may look simple, but with unlimited levels and no in-app purchases it packs a ton of value for its low $1.99 (USD) price. Procedurally-generated levels and randomized graphics make Octagon feel different with each run, while a thudding electronica soundtrack by UK based producer Sqeepo keeps the adrenaline pumping level after level.
"My ultimate idea for Octagon was to provide pure challenge without anything else getting in the way. Visually, I was inspired by Apple's iOS 7 design - minimalist, yet with millions of colors," explains Korba. "I both love the game and hate it for its difficulty. Playing it is like playing the arcade games I loved on my Atari as a kid."
