Octagon for iPhone and iPad is easy to pick up and play, but insanely addictive

Octagon for both iPhone and iPad is an arcade style game that requires you to swipe and flick your way through an unlimited amount of levels. Jump the gaps, twist through platforms and gaps in order to cross the finish line in each level. Fail and fall off and you've got to start the level over.

I stumbled across Octagon while browsing the App Store on my iPad and I haven't been able to put it down since. It's ridiculously addictive yet maddening at the same time. If you've ever played Impossible Road. this is the same kind of addiction.

There are only three controls to learn in Octagon. You can either tap or swipe left and right to dodge objects horizontally. In order to jump over objects and gaps, just flick upwards on the screen. In some areas, the entire path in front of you turns, so make sure you're looking ahead so you're prepared for what's next.

Octagon is somewhat like Temple Run, but on steroids and which much cooler music and graphics. If you're a Temple Run or Impossible Road fan, you definitely want to check out Octagon for iPhone or iPad.
