Ten Polygon

by elxris - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Third Ludum Dare entry. Yaaay!

This is my favorite entry, because is the by far the funniest.

The goal is to turn the green in blue (by clicking them) in less than a second, ten times, to reach the next level of difficulty. How far you will stop?

I think I had a stroke.

The thing moves with the mouse and makes it very confusing.

Nice concept though, clicking really fast got me to 7 seconds or so.

Great concept! It's really hard to make it to 10 seconds. Maybe the mouse cursor could be a bit more visible. Anyway I love this :D Really fun small game.

That was really cool. I had no idea what was happening at first. Great atmosphere and unique use of the theme.

Oh man. My eyes. Quite enjoyable despite the fact I was super confused most of the time.

It's too hard for me :) After the first two levels I don't really understand what I'm doing.

Interesting concept. Pretty cool. It made me dizzy, though. I will go barf now.

Great fun, although I think I may have gone blind now.

Oh, that's totally cool. It took me a minute to figure it out, but once I did I really liked it. The fact that the shapes move with the cursor is confusing, but gives you a better sens of where you are clicking.

Problem is, I'm colourblind so it takes me ages to tell the red and green apart. So I can't really play this properly.

I like the simple visual style and played it all the way to the end. It gets really tense when you get down to the last few seconds! Really creative entry.

Epilepsy inducing, but challenging enough to keep me playing.

Thank you very much for your comments, I loved them.
And sorry for epileptic seizures that I may have caused.

Is anyone else having problems in OSX?

As others said, a bit strenuous on the eyes. Really cool idea none the less. Made it to difficulty 6 before my head exploded.

I like this kind of games. The pointer was offset of mouse position, that is a bit frustrating. Have you played Super Hexagon? :)

Wow, something about the visuals, sound and rhythm of this game make it absolutely mesmerizing. I love simple little games like this. Great job.

Took me a while to get the hang of, and yeah reminded me of Super Hexagon :D
Cool concept, though it's confusing how fast it starts out.

I won! But decided to quit at difficulty 6 in case I went blind permanently.

Awesome graphics! A little confusing at first, but I manage to win! \o/
A little bit hard to click on the green, I had to click like crazy in all directions.
The concept is very nice, maybe you can make a new game on top of this? =D

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
