  1. Oh, man. Maybe I didn’t get enough sleep last night, but there is something about this that just feels incredible.

  2. Yeah, only having played two modes I feel like this is a commercial product. By which I mean, I’d pay money for it.

  3. Iโ€™d like to endorse the wall of praise this game deserves and probably will get.

  4. This game is awesome. I can’t stop playing it…

  5. Very good game in the style of the unrecognized “floating 3D tunnel/road racing” genre: In particular it’s closest to Psyborg and Yoomp! – both of which also employ the rotational model.

  6. It seems like a Skyroads + Super Hexagon mix. AND I LOVE IT!!

  7. this is great, but I am terrible at it.

  8. this is a great game
    wish there were more levels

  9. Anyone care to explain what the circular graphs mean? I keep thinking it might be useful information, but I can’t crack the code.

  10. I’d like it a lot better if the player dropped more quickly after releasing a button – or alternatively, the rate at which the player drops after releasing a button scales with the game speed scaling. When you get past 100-150% and the game speed increases dramatically, it becomes impossible to navigate the sections of short platforms that go left-left-left-etc (or right).

    • I get what ya mean but I think it’s good the speed increases. You ain’t wannit to go forever widda forever hi-score, manno. Just prepare yourself for that side if ya wanna make it

      • Well, it makes the game much more luck-dependent than it would be otherwise in scoring well. I’ve got some >200% scores, but they’ve all be in runs where I lucked out with friendly sequences. When getting a sequence that requires multiple jumps in the same direction in a row, it eventually becomes impossible (not “impossible” because the player isn’t skilled enough, but really impossible) to complete.

        Other games where the game becomes more difficult with progress still allows things to be possible – the player still loses anyways.

  11. sadly, can’t run due to integrated graphics seemingly being unsupported.

    • Hi nanosity. If you’re using Intel graphics on Windows, did you try installing the latest drivers from Intel? (Boson X uses OpenGL which isn’t that well supported on Windows out-of-the-box.)

      • does the game require a version of opengl that is over v1.2 because if so then yeah that’ll be why i cant actually run it.

  12. This is great. It has a really unique feel to it, score only accumulating over blue platforms, left and right arrows performing legitimate jumps of such long potential duration. I’ve only unlocked four of the modes so far, but am already so satisfied with the variety.

  13. Pretty good. Could use more levels and an optional higher difficulty setting. Radion, graviton and x boson are great.

  14. Loving everything about this: gameplay, art, learning curve and oh those elbow patches on the protagonist’s suit.
    Truly great!

  15. the difficulty is not easy and it’s not too hard either. It’s just right. Great game. Even though there’s only six levels, it’s still the perfect amount. More levels would be great though

  16. Highly competitive game some great fun. I did a gameplay video of it here if you want to see more

  17. this game is awesome
    i am from Iran and i just got the 52 place on the ranking

  18. God dammit, I can’t even open it… I extracted it, but whenever I try to run it, it just flashes a little black text box for half a second, then doesn’t do anything.

  19. Nerdcubed sent me here!

  20. did any1 else end up here because of NerdCubed!! :mrgreen:

  21. I don't want names

  25. nerd3 sent me here!

  30. found out game from Nerdcubed ๐Ÿ˜›

  31. I can’t open the game i click the thing to open but it doesn’t work what should i do

  32. This game is god damned AMAZING.
    And free too! Get it now. Just make sure you don’t have anything to do for the next two days. I have one question, though. What is the particle detector on the right when you lose. What does it mean?

  33. BLUE ME!

    It blew m–
    Not gonna finish that sentence.


  34. I’ve seen other people play this and it looked like great fun, so I downloaded it myself. But even after I extract the folders, when I play it, about a quarter of the game display takes up the entire screen, so I can’t see whats directly in front of me to the right and I can’t see what my energy % is. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  35. awesome game if you think by the last of the game your reaction time hasn’t improved go to the level radion or graviton which for me took a very long time to complete took me only a few trys to complete

  36. for anyone who sais theres a little black screen that pops up when you try to open it what i did was reextract the file then just replaced the file that wasnt working

  37. i once was 8 on the last level
