It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for another Free App of the Week. Apple’s pick this week is an addictive arcade game called Octagon, which is down from $1.99.
“If you took Super Hexagon, Impossible Road and Tempest and shoved them in a blender, the resulting smoothie would probably taste like Octagon,” according to Apple. “It’s a psychedelic infinite runner backed by lean-mean electronic music.”
Octagon is a minimally-designed game, but you shouldn’t be fooled by its visuals. It’s a whole lot harder than it looks, which makes trying to get as far as you can super addictive.
As the floor moves around beneath you, you’ll have to spin the world around and dodge speed bumps, flip upside down to avoid holes, and do whatever it takes to survive the race through the tunnel. Each round lasts just 60 seconds, but they get harder and harder every time.
Octagon is a universal game that you can enjoy on both iPhone and iPad, and it is normally priced at $1.99 — but you can get it free for just one week. Simply open up the App Store on your iOS device, and look for the Octagon banner in the carousel at the top of the page.
