Octagon review

Octagon is a game with very simple and challenging nature. It challenges the player’s skills and intelligence while having a mesmerizing environment and unique tracks. Control the octagon in a 3D racing track and don’t let it fall into an endless abyss.

Gameplay

Octagon is a reaction skill-based game. Your goal is to pass through random tracks and reach the finish line. Avoid falling out the octagonal-shaped tunnel at all cost. Just keep moving inside it. Quickly avoid the bumps as they will reduce your speed and momentum. This will ultimately destroy the ball. Complete the levels as fast and flawless as possible.

The track has eight “lanes” which is why it is called “octagon”. The path is segmented and filled with gaps. Stay on the target by using your keys left or right to move on those directions. You may need to go bottom to top in a hurry to prevent your ball from falling.

Octagon requires the Unity3D web player add-on and is limited to supported browsers.

Controls

The gameplay will be using the keyboard functions most of the time. Arrow keys are used for the ball’s movement. WASD can also be used for left-handed gamers. Navigation is done by the mouse and selection by the left mouse button. If you want to pause the game, just press the space bar. To go to the menu, press Esc.

Graphics

The graphics are in 3D and minimal in nature. The game also offers multiple layouts that you can choose from. If you don’t feel like playing at a particular layout, you can just swap it out with another. Choose a layout that suits your visual preference and motor skills.

minimalist graphics

The colors of the platforms are morphing while the outside background is a blast of whirring lines. It can be quite calming to some. And even though the game can be a bit frustrating, you can just easy relax at the vivid colors offered by the game.

Sounds

The music used in the game is quite opposite with the visual graphics. It pumps you up and reminds you that you are in a game and you have to win. It’s an electro-techno kind of arrangement that makes it more exciting. Be careful, though. The music can sometimes get stuck in your head even if you’re not playing the game anymore.

Fun Factor

It has simple rules and simple gameplay. But you’re going to fail. A lot. Every time you do, the game will show you the percentage of the level you’ve completed. This will compare it with your best attempt. It gives you an idea of your progress. If you’ve passed through a certain pit already, you’re pretty confident to pass through it the next time because you know you already got it before.

The simplicity of the game masks the complexity of the play. The levels will be giving you no mercy and it’s going to be more and more difficult towards the end. Repeat levels and you can learn other movement variations. Rely on your muscle memory to make it to the end.
