    Hey there,

    Just reporting back in with my first initial responses to the update (which was WAY more substantial than I had imagined!), I'll be able to provide more feedback through the weekend for you.

    Bugs and Observations:
    - This one is very minor (unless you plan on shipping the game with the 'Test Mode' setting still in the game), but when completing a run utilizing test mode the option unchecks itself. This could be the intended behavior (and makes perfect sense to me if this is the case!), but I thought I would make a note of it for you
    - When selecting the "Dragon" Theme, leaving the settings screen and starting a run will cause the selected theme to be "Spikes" once the run is over; This is also the case if you go into settings, select the Dragon Theme, and then change your tab to either the colors or general tabs

    Current thoughts on new features to implement:
    - Adding an endless mode to each of the levels would be awesome. I have hit the 180 second mark a few times, and would love to continue playing (even if the music just loops/repeats) until I die
    - The sounds/music are very loud even on 01/30 volume (this is the case for most things, not just your app!), so it would be an awesome addition to have a volume slider in the settings screen. Ideally, there would be 2: Music and Sound Effects (for death and the female announcer), however even just one that is "Master Volume" would be great!

    I'll continue to play with it this weekend and let you know what else I come across or come up with. I was pleasantly surprise to hear the announcer this morning when I installed the update and am a really big fan of how you were identifying your current level (with the symbols and the announcer telling you beta, etc). I did play with the Player Speed option, but am still deciding on my thoughts for it as of now. I also replayed the tutorial and was surprised to see that there was a nice completion screen to it... very nice touch

    Trust me the voice over is just a placeholder for now till I get something good. This is actually the voice of my friend (guy) with some effects on to make it look like a female voice ;).. Nadia Syed if you want to do the voice over, let me know :)

    @Idiosyncrasy Thanks again for the feedback.

    1. Test Mode is only for you guys .. the objective being that you see the whole level and listen to the complete music track. It will be removed for public release.

    2. Yes, the settings screen has bugs as you noticed, fixing soon and adding colors page where you can choose color scheme for the level

    3. I will add a music/sound slider, but there is one catch. I cannot offer a complete 0 volume or mute in the game, you will have to mute the phone volume if you dont want sound. The reason for this is because this is a music based game. The level beats based on what music is playing . If I make teh volume 0 inside the game or mute inside the game the level will become easier becasue it will not "beat" it cant detect/hear any music. I hope I am explaining it better.

    4. Instead of 3 speed options I can provide a slider as well for speed if it would be useful.

    5. I am actually changing the whole level scheme right now. Next update you will have the following:

    Beginner levels:
    Square - 60 seconds - only square mode
    Pentagon - 60 seconds - only pentagon mode
    Hexagon - 60 seconds - only hexagon mode
    Octagon - 60 seconds - only octagon mode

    Intermediate Levels:
    Polygon - 120 seconds - square+pentagon mode (fast)
    Hyper Polygon - 120 seconds - square+pentagon mode (faster)
    Polygoner - 120 seconds - hexagon+octagon mode (fast)
    Hyper Polygoner - 120 seconds - hexagon+octagon mode (faster)

    Advanced Level:

    Polygonest - 180 seconds - square+pentagon+hexagon+octagon - fast
    Hyper Polygonest - 180 seconds - square+pentagon+hexagon+octagon - faster
    Uber Polygonest - 180 seconds - square+pentagon+hexagon+octagon - fastest

    Finale:

    Super Polygon - infinite level - crazy patterns, fastest - vomit inducing :)

    There will be a level unlocking system, some of it you can unlock by just clearing previous levels, some of it will be in-app-purchase so I can make some money off it. If you guys have any suggestions in this regard. Please let me know!


    AND final question ... who would like to see a "flappy bird" as the player object in Super Polygon.. LoL :)

    must say, you've made a nice game ! And the soundtrack is great ! But one problem, it arrow sometimes gets killed when we hit the walls from the sides too. I'll put a screenshot later when i can. Fix this please !
    03-03-2014 01:04 AM
  10. Saksham Sharma's Avatar
    And please optimize it a bit more, i mean the motion of the arrow should be a little more smooth, and also, the installation size too, its too much. Though i understand its in beta so would take time, anyway good efforts !

    Yes installation size is due to music tracks.. but I will compress music tracks. final game shouldn't be more than 30 MB. I have improved the wall-side collision a lot. It shouldnt get you killed in most cases.. just make sure not to force your triangle into them.

    Back again for another exciting round of feedback for Super Polygon!

    In regards to the player move speeds, I like having the different settings (and think that the slider may not be a bad thing) however with the two levels we have now I can't really comment on if this will "break" the game or give people unfair advantages. What I would suggest, is that each level has it's own speed... i.e. the beginner levels use the slow speed, intermediate levels use a speed that is a little faster, and then advanced levels use the fastest speed.

    For some reason, I feel that level 2 is easier than level 1. I'm not sure why, but I had an easier time beating level 2 consistently than I did playing level 1 (this might be because I played the first round of the beta perhaps?) This shouldn't matter though, as you're changing the entire level structure anyways :)

    Also, looking forward to seeing some more "tricky" patterns. There were a few in the Hexagonest mode that threw me for a loop in Super Hexagon, and I'm hoping that the more advanced levels have some interesting patterns that will make me want to throw my phone across the room haha

    So, really no new feedback from this weekend and just looking forward to trying the new levels and patterns out. I'll be keeping my eye out for any additional bugs as well of course

    Yes, tricky patterns are coming.. SP will have more patterns than SH for sure. I will release an update today with 7 levels.

    Super Polygon v1.2 Beta is Ready!

    I am so excited to announce Super Polygon v1.2 beta. Thank you for your interest in helping me test Super Polygon.

    In this update:

    1. Download size reduced to 18 MB
    2. Changed level structure to ramp up difficulty in a smooth curve, We now have 7 levels (6 more levels to come)


    Square, Pentagon, Hexagon, Octagon

    Polygon, Polygoner, Polygonest

    3. Added 3rd music track
    4. You will have to complete Square to unlock Pentagon and so forth. But if you cant do that and want to take a look at all levels. There is a "TEST" setting on settings screen. When you check that, you will be able to play all levels and your player will not die during the game. But I would suggest that you try to play all levels the regular way so you can comment on the difficulty ramp up.

    I only have 1 week left to complete this game, so its critical that I get feedback from you guys. Please respond with feedback, suggestions latest by Friday.

    You can send me feedback by replying to this email or from you phone - just tap on the "mail" icon on the main menu screen in the game.

    You should be able to download the game; if you face any issues, wait 10 minutes and try again.

    The game is all about music and action. It looks deceptively simple and can get frustrating :) so make sure to put the volume on high since I need feedback on the music as well.

    If you haven't played it before, please play tutorial by tapping the "LEARN" button.


    Please like our facebook page.



    Thank You,

    Imran Shafiq

    Hey I've noticed that the first run after opening it takes a long time to start on 520, maybe optimise it a bit ? And also, could you please improve the retry menu ? The one in super hexagon was awesome !

    Yeh, I made a mistake in last release. I will fix that so it doesnt take too long. I also added a "loading" panel when you tap on a level.

    so far I love the game.....I think you should give a window when we complete a level that we've unlocked another level...
    and I've seen a glitch I suppose...when it loads a level....it gets stuck! and the music just goes like it's buffering....

    hell !!! I played it again, completed square, saw my high score: 60.03 seconds. and then just to test, i closed the game and restarted it. MY PROGRESS WASN'T THERE !! It isn't saving my progress permanently ! The only saves i have are the polygon and polygoner saves which were made before the update, and i cant even play them now ! i cant even play pentagon without first doing square all over again ! Fix the save issue please !
