Bugs? I seriously thought it was meant to be that way... but now as I know it... it does not change anything ;). Great game!

Yay, I just broke the 2 minute barrier (2:02:07)! Very enjoyable game, is a fun distraction when coding Linux drivers :) The sprite bugs are a little annoying when playing a lot. Yet, the rest is so awesome that it doesn't hurt much. Love the tune, it is really motivating to try again just to see how it continues. Thanks, great stuff IMO.

Very impressive and if you ask me, AWESOME!
Someone commented it's boring? Well, I guess it's a casual game really, so it's not something you'd play for a long time.
It's fun to pick and play and try to beat your best....then move on.
Come and go.
I love it.

May be great from the technical side, but becomes boring very fast.

Absolutely amazing. Very original. I am still trying to beat my 1.01.58 record.

Wow! Amazing feat to port this to c64! Definately not your first choice when you look for currently popular porting candidates, so kudos Paulko64! ;-)
The game itself is really nauseating though, even sober i almost feel the motion sickness... But I guess that's part of the concept! ;-D
Definately let drunk people play this on the next party. Just make sure you have a bucket nearby, or you'll end up cleaning your space like me on X2012! <:-) (still wonder who the amateur was that puked under my table!)

Very good game! \o/
But... inverted directions in control?

I made it to 1:35 after a few tries, but the flashing colors that start at about 45 seconds and continues after that get a bit too annoying, I would have preferred slower changing colors, but I guess the flashing is there to add to the difficulty level.

Other than that, great fun to play, and a major technical achievement to squeeze it onto the C64!

@Oswald: The game uses 20 different precalculated screen/charram combinations. The walls are made up of 240 different precalculated expanded multiplexed sprites. While the music and code have to sit somewhere in between :)

Awesome game. But controls [when rotating] freak me out. Too bad the tune restarts every time - so far I have only managed to hear the first 15 seconds :-|

Need more games like this. Originality galore, (rather than the cliched platform type)

moves pretty fast, how is this done? censor color rotation, or... ? quite often there are diagonal drawing/update bugs in the white shapes.

1:05:37 ;) As splendid as the original and mobile versions. The only thing that can be done is pulsating - originally everything pulsates including the core and player's dot ;)

I should have issued a health warning with this release :). The stroboscopic effect was added because of increased difficulty, but it can make people feel nauseous as well. I accept no liability of damage to your C64 by vomiting all over the keyboard :)

Nice one! I don't play many games on my phone, but I do play Super Hexagon quite a lot. I've often wondered how close a conversion could be made for the C64. This is definitely easier than the original (I significantly beat my best ever Super Hexagon score on my second go!), with less patterns, and I noticed you can die from hitting the white blocks side on, but it's a nice effort and it's great that there's been a conversion of this!

what ian said. Never played the original, but when I saw the game concept of the original I already thought: yeah, that's what I imagined games to be/look like in 20xx. and having a C64 version is totally awesome.
