Square Rave is a high-score chasing action game, speeding around an ever-changing field of squares to find safety before the end of each bar of music! The more blue squares you pass through the higher your score will climb, but be careful - the trail you leave behind will block your path. As the tempo rises, your skills and reflexes will be tested to the extreme! It's quick to fail, but quick to restart too...


Square Rave is by sound designer and musician Adam Hay, who has worked for Traveller's Tales, Frontier, Rare and currently The Chinese Room. Borne out of a lifelong love of making games, beginning with Klik and Play on his parent's 486 right through to work on multi-million selling franchises, Square Rave brings together his love of twitchy action games and melodic electronic music!


  • Fast-paced, tempo-synced action!
  • Finely tuned touch screen controls!
  • Challenge mates to high scores with GameCenter leaderboards and features!
  • Seven pulse-racing electronic music tracks ranging from 120 BPM to 240 BPM!
  • Quick restart to scratch that "just one more go" itch!
