Minimal arcade game Octagon goes free as Apple’s App of the Week

Apple on Thursday updated its App of the Week promotion with the game Octagon. This means that for the next 7 days, you’ll be able to download the popular minimal arcade title on both iPhone and iPad for free, a solid savings of $2.

For those unfamiliar with Octagon, players are trapped inside an 8-sided, constantly-moving tunnel that features gaps and other obstacles. You must jump, dodge and do whatever you can to survive each torturous 60-secound round.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

If you took Super Hexagon, Impossible Road, and Tempest and shoved them in a blender, the resulting smoothie would probably taste like Octagon. It’s a psychedelic infinite runner backed by lean-mean electronic music and a difficulty that’ll have you begging for mercy while you tap to Retry.

And here’s a clip of Octagon in action:

Octagon is available in the App Store for free.

    Reading the title, I thought the game is like a knock off version of hexagon lol (which is also a great game btw:)
