Quick Look: Polyganic is not your typical video game. In most games you pilot a ship and try to navigate through a maze of obstacles collecting treasure or destroying enemies; here you move the obstacles and you try to avoid the oncoming ship. If that was not enough there is a vast amount of distracting images in the background flashing and changing colors.
The object of the game is to get the ship through a maze of moving obstacles while getting the ship to collect tokens which can be used for upgrades later on. You initially start out with the traditional triangular ship which you can upgrade to other shapes or customize with different skins and colors for a price. The game starts you out with 500 coins which you can use to buy extra lives at first, or you can play the game one life at a time. If you choose to play with a single ship you will have to start over at the beginning every time you are destroyed.
The video below will help you get started and give you a better idea of how the game is played. Once you have progressed enough you can start visiting the Marketplace where you customize the game play and your ship.

Developer's Channel Description: POLYGANIC mixes together shades of Geometry Wars, an endless runner, and an arcade dodge-'em-up to great effect". (Pocket Gamer)
It is an addictive twitch dodge 'em up based on shapes and colour where obstacles must be avoided to survive. The twist? The player doesn't control the polygon, but moves the obstacles instead!
- A new 'side' for the endless runner mechanic!
- Collectable coins, 'near-miss' multipliers and psychedelic visuals.
- 8-bit graphics with high intense chiptune.
- Unlockable shapes, modes and more.
- Play it your way (featuring left mode, etc).
Reflexes will truly be tested as the polygon flies with a manic mind of it's own. Levels will increase in difficulty, speed, colour and more depending on the shape and how many sides it has, so navigating each level won't be easy. Better 'shape' up!
