I got like 420:00 seconds

That's extremely good! :vitellary: More than 12x my current score!
Still, that's less than a half of Whirligig's score (mentioned before here), which is probably the world record.
Not even close!
Whirligig's score: 870:59

The highest score on Kongregate is 3335 seconds by GiamBa_nsltaz.

The scores in between are: 3327, 1890, 1770, 1579, 1429, 1282, 1254, 1203, 1137, 1107, 1083, 1072, 1016, 969 and 912

Sorry to disappoint you.

Sorry to disappoint you.

So, it looks like Whirligig is in 17th... and probably Toaster is out of the top 30 (considering how "dense" the scores are between 1282 and 870, I expect at least 13 other players with scores between 870 and 420).
Not being Whirligig nor Toaster, I don't see how could that disappoint me... even if the record is almost 100x my current score. It just makes me more impressed. It most take a very long time to get those scores, as 3335 sec. is almost an hour! :vitellary: Imagine, half an hour per attempt!
But... is there any chance the top 2 are cheaters? It's strange that the 1st and 2nd are above 3300 and the 3rd is below 1900, but it might just be a coincidence.

I think the scores are more exponential than that. I mean, the same number of players within any given range? I don't think that the number of people who got between 800 and 1200 should be approximately the same as the number of people who get between 400 and 800. (So there are also less than 20 players with high scores between 0 and 400?) I think that the number of players who get a high score between x and x+400 decreases when x gets higher.

If you'd say that the top 2 are cheaters, you would be calling me a cheater as well. :p

My nerves were already a wreck everytime I got past half an hour, so I couldn't withstand more than one attempt a day.
And no, that is not a coincidence; I got very nervous when I knew I was close to getting the world record.

I never got even close to getting that high a score afterwards. (although many that were still past 1800 seconds)

When your scores get so high, you might need something to keep you from getting bored, like an hour long music playlist, which also makes it possible to keep track of how much time has passed without taking your eyes off the hexagon.

I don't own, or plan to ever get any iDevices, so you won't be seeing me on Gamecenter.
I just wish there was a good way to check the Super Hexagon Gamecenter leaderboards without having to ask someone.

seconded. Gamecenter should be a PC download or add on so we could check stats there.

I thought about that, but I exaggerated. Out of top 80, perhaps?

It's strange that the 1st and 2nd are above 3300 and the 3rd is below 1900, but it might just be a coincidence.
And no, that is not a coincidence; I got very nervous when I knew I was close to getting the world record.

Stil, there isn't any player with a score <3300 and >1900 (on Kongregate, that is!)!

Are you saying that your're the one in 2nd place?! :vitellary:
PS: the link to the screenshot leads to a "403 Forbidden".

I found a glitch (I don't expect it to be fixed, as Hexagon is just a demo of Super Hexagon, I think...): Press space immediately after the main menu appears (after you died) and the rotation speed is the same as the one before you died. I wonder if it happens on Super Hexagon too.
(New record. Updated reply 38).
