At the subatomic level, things get weird... words like "floor" and "ceiling" cease to make sense, and you'll have to forget everything you ever knew about gravity in order to make your way through the cylindrical world inside a particle accelerator in Ian MacLarty's Boson X.
You're a scientist in search of the elusive Boson X (a cousin of the Higgs, one presumes). Charge up enough energy by running over glowing blue platforms to discover bizarre new particles, gaining access to new areas ripe for discovery. Careful, though - you'll gain speed as you charge, making your precision leaps between platforms ever more frantic.
The physics are great, both simple and mind-bending. It's a difficult game, but not an impossible one, and the the learning curve feels just right. Something about running within a particle accelerator is enough to give an awesome surreal flavor to the whole experience. There are no in-app purchases whatsoever.
The scientific method won't help you gain traction in Ian MacLarty's Boson X; only hardcore reflexes and a highly-developed funky spacial sense can help you now.
