Octahedron is a great platforming experience with a unique identity, style, and gameplay. Its dozens upon dozens of levels are a tiny bit on the short side, but mastering those challenges is what kept me coming back for more. It's one of the more distinct offerings as part of the Square Enix Collective and is something of a hidden gem.

Octahedron is a bombastic, prismatic, punishing rhythm game that is a ton of fun, while it lasts.

Indie games have shown the value of smaller studios making unique games beholden only to their vision and not the economic constraints of AAA development, and Demimonde's Octahedron now stands shoulder to shoulder with the best of them, thanks to an amazing soundtrack, creative level design and presentation, and singular vision.

Intelligent puzzle design, striking visuals and a soundtrack straight out of late 90s raves make for one of the most interesting titles I've experienced so far this year, even if it is occasionally marred by difficult and frustrating puzzle design.

With almost 50 levels, multiple difficulties, and four medals to unlock in each stage, Octahedron has enough content to keep players busy for hours.

Every level has been given the kind of pixel-perfect love that the genre’s greatest have received, every jump inch perfect and every puzzle a challenge without becoming frustrating at any point. In fact, the game’s difficulty ramps up so steadily and doles out new concepts at such an ideal pace that no death feels cheap and yet no victory feels unearned.

OCTAHEDRON is a treat for the eyes and the ears, and its vibrant rhythm guides you through its platforms.

Octahedron is a unique platformer that really does something different in the genre. The dependence on creating your own platforms and facing a whole variety of different hazards leaves the game feeling varied throughout, whilst the psychedelic visuals and slick 60fps framerate remain a treat on the eyes too – even if they can become a little repetitive over time. Best of all though is that the game is just a hell of a lot of fun to play. Its clever ideas are accessible and easy to pull off throughout, and whilst there are a fair few difficulty spikes that can be frustrating, they don’t stop Octahedron from being enjoyable from the start to the end.

Octahedron can take a while to click, but once you're past the early stages and get over the denial of your abilities it really surprises with its inventiveness.
