No Money, No Problem: Boson X

Title: Boson X
Developer: Mu & Heyo
Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux, IOS
Price: Free
Boson X is described as a "rotational runner" but that quick description doesn't do justice to this polished reflex testing platformer. You play a man trapped inside a particle collider, running down a procedurally generated path that looks like someone mixed a warp drive with a Super Hexagon-induced nightmare.
Catchy music plays in the background as platforms materialize before you, giving you only seconds to jump left or right or over gaps. Hazards abound and all require quick reflexes to evade: falling platforms, crackling lasers, walls, and more. There are six stages, each with its own unique music, visual scheme, and obstacles.
Like the games that inspired it, Boson X is an addictive, challenging adrenaline rush. You can download the game for free and a mobile version is coming soon as well.
