I can feel that this game was heavily inspired by Super Hexagon, good job!

Really fun game!

The custom tracks took some figuring out, but the tutorial was really well made.

My only criticism is that the combos mean essentially nothing right now (correct me if i'm wrong but it seems to be mostly time based). Perhaps a point system with combo-based multipliers (each second you get 1 point, if you have a 3 combo you get 3 points, etc.)

Would recommend (especially cuz its free!)

 - Knee Remover/Destroyer/Thief

Edit: Tip for those having trouble with custom songs,


(Only would work if using itch app)

Try placing your custom song inside DOS folder

Edit 2:

Just realized this game is very similar to super hexagon

also sorry for the wall of text but i need to put strategies here :D

Help with strategies:

Hex vs. Pent: The hexagon may look like the pentagon, but it's really easy to know which one it is. The shape coming up is always one side more or less than you, and only one. If you are on square and see something that isn't a triangle, it's probably a pentagon. If you are a pentagon because you just came from square and see something that looks like possibly pentagon possibly hexagon it's a hexagon because you can't get the same shape twice.

Thanks for taking the time to read this entire wall of text :D

what exactly do we do with the dots i dont get it ._.

its a great and fun game. thanks!


How to build from source on linux?

Overall a really good game, but I don't understand what you're supposed to do with the dots

edit: I also don't understand how to add custom songs

A really really good game , the constume songs are the best part i think really good!!! c:

i really like this game , but i'm having trouble with adding a custom song . how do i do it ???

5 months later but you need the mp3 song and you need to drag to the screengame , later you can play


It's good, but I find it difficult to understand some of the text.

This is a great game!

One thing that could make it better is that on custom mode the song repeats. I find it annoying when the song ends and I only hear silence.

How to play this????

Use the arrow keys to change shape or catch the dots.

What exactly causes you to lose? I don't see any health bar and sometimes I die right after getting a perfect.

you have to change your shape to the shape coming up :)

Loved it! AMAZING track! absolute banger~ :)

Really nice looking game, awesome!

Good, clean fun.

Very cool game, also very hard.

The game is really cool!

By the way, what mean signs "bad", "perfect", "great", etc?

Hey there, thanks! That's your accuracy with the rhythm of the music, the more "perfect" you get, the more combos you'll do :-)


Wait...doesn't run on DOS?! =P

No fullscreen?!


Really nice game, even though i don't know what to do with the circles... :/ but great overall :)


As I know, you should press right if the circle is on the right and left if on the left

Yee, I realized that later on.. but thx!
