Geometry Dash is a rhythm-based platform game developed and published by RobTop Games. It started being sold for two dollars on August 13, 2013. It is a 2D platform game that involves dodging geometric obstacles (spikes, walls, and creatures) in a series of levels that you can complete. You can also create your own levels in the editor, and play levels made by other people. To finish levels, you have to get through the whole level without dying. You can collect items such as coins, stars, orbs, and diamonds. There are different vehicles in the game.

Logo used for Steam version/Title

The player uses the keyboard, touch screen, controller, or mouse (depending on what device they are using) to jump over obstacles in each level. The primary goal of each level is to complete the level without dying. If the character dies you are sent back to the beginning of the level. There are other goals such as collecting currencies such as coins, stars, orbs, or diamonds.

Currency in Geometry Dash can range from being easy to hard to collect. Ways to collect currency are by completing quests for diamonds and completing map packs for secret coins and stars. Beating popular levels with all 3 user coins will give you orbs and will unlock user coin achievements.

Icons are a way of customizing your character. You can get icons by completing quests, achievements, and cracking vaults.

There are 3 different vaults in Geometry Dash. The original Vault which requires 10 user coins, The Vault of Secrets which requires 50 diamonds, and the Chamber of Time which requires the Master Emblem. (sold in Scratch's Shop that requires 500 diamonds) Just like the Icon section, you can unlock different icons by secret codes in the vault.

The level editor combines different blocks, spikes, and decorations for you to add and create to your very own level. The level editor also allows you to do different things for a level. Background color changing, invisibility, and movement triggers, and different variety of changes to your level creation. Update 2.1 added multiple different things to the level editor. Including dash orbs, the new spider vehicle, and a new orb, a push-down orb that is black.
