Rotational

JohnBSick of doing well in the games you play? Tired of not cursing in anger every 5.08 seconds? Rotational is here to help. The quick-fire arcade game from Kevin Messman is a sort of 3D homage to Terry Cavanagh's Super Hexagon. Instead of a nice and "easy" flat surface to slide around, Rotational sticks you in a series of shrinking colored boxes with only one way to escape. Rotate the screen so you pop through the open end, then immediately rotate everything again so you'll survive the next layer of box shrinkage. Oh, and, try not to breathe or blink or anything.

Rotational relies on quick reflexes and a superior sense of spatial reasoning. And a lot of practice. Probably a lot of blind luck, too. It doesn't take too much work to survive for a few seconds, but working your way to 30, 40, 60 seconds or more is practically a miracle. Even with the frustration of monumentally high difficulty, Rotational pulls through as the kind of game you're driven to make progress in. Just so you can say you did it.

Rotational has the same mood of super hexagon: gradually faster and faster gameplay with nice 8-bit music. The gameplay is different though with a sphere that has to move through many cubes as well as having repetitive gameplay that will have you not put the game down. Overall I give it 5/5 mushrooms.

Ultra fun! I lasted 26 seconds once. Anyone else out there beat the game yet?

40 Seconds! I feel like doing well is heavily dependent on having a good camera orientation from the outset.

Not bad, but the randomness sometimes seems to make it impossible. I've had situations where one cube opened one way and the next cube opened in exactly the opposite direction, and I simply couldn't turn fast enough to get through.
