Polychoron is a simple but challenging 3D arcade shoot'em up in an endless series of unique mazes. The objective is to navigate through the mazes, destroy hostile drones, collect score, and survive as long as possible. Those who reach the highest levels and collect most score before their inevitable death get their names on the global high score table.

Features:

  • Full 6-degrees-of-freedom movement in zero gravity environment.
  • Unique procedurally generated mazes.
  • Designed for hassle-free short game sessions. Suitable for busy adults.
  • Global high score tables for the best pilots.

Polychoron is ready

News

Here's a new gameplay trailer:

The previous beta version appears to be working well, so there are very few changes in this update:

  • Only show high scores from version 1.0.0 and later.
  • Fixed maze wireframe sometimes appearing on top of HUD texts.
  • Include game version information in the log file.
  • Adjusted menu info text positions on mobile to avoid rounded corners.

The most visible change is the high score split. When you launch 1.0.0 the high score tables are empty. All your hard earned high scores from the alpha and beta versions are still there but only visible in the previous versions. Due to so many changes affecting game's difficulty during the development, I decided to split the high scores on this release to allow fair competition from here on.

Now that the game is ready, I enabled the optional payments on Itch.io. You can still get the for 100% free if you like or you can pay any amount of your choice.

Get ready to die in the maze!
