Multiplatform freeware Boson X is the freshest twitch sensation from developers Mu & Heyo (Ian MacLarty and Jon Kerney), mixing the spinning geometry of Hexagon and the procedural autorunning of Canabalt. You can jump in one of three directions and must land on the glowing blue platforms to gain energy. At 100% energy, you unlock more stages.
Boson X keeps it simple with rules, but mastering each level, let alone the hyperdrive speed it kicks into after 100%, feels quite difficult. There are leaderboards on the official website, so get to practicing now to see if you can take down their times. To get online, just be sure to hit "O" after you fall.
An iOS version is coming soon.
