What Is Geometry Dash?
Geometry Dash is a music-based jump 'n' run (aka platforming) video game with numerous versions. The original Geometry Dash game has 21 levels and was released on IOS and Android on 13th August 2013. The Geometry Dash Steam version was made available on 22 December 2014. Spinoffs that have been released so far include Geometry Dash Meltdown, Geometry Dash World, and Geometry Dash SubZero.
Game play for the original Geometry Dash game involves you (in the form of a really hip square icon) navigating your way from the start of the level to the end while avoiding obstacles in your way. And, watch out! Those obstacles, be they spikes, saw blades, walls, etc. will destroy you instantly on contact.
In a nutshell - keep moving and steer clear of ALL obstacles! Collect the good stuff while avoiding the bad stuff and be sure to grab some of the awesome secret stuff that's in there, too!
Who Created Geometry Dash?
Swedish video game developer Robert "RobTop" Topala is the guy who invented this delightful, heart-stopping, scrolling romp across your screen. The Geometry Dash creator has admitted that "there really was no detailed plan" for the way in which the game developed. It all began really simply with just "a cube that could crash and jump."
Topala had just basic programming knowledge at the time but it took him just 4 months to develop the game which became an instant hit. He released the free version of the game with just seven levels but added nine more levels later.
In case you're wondering, Geometry Dash wasn't Topala's first video game. His very first creation was released in 2010 and he must have been bitten by the developer's bug real hard. He gave up studying civil engineering to dive into the world of video gaming. By the way, that first RobTop creation was called Bounce Ball Thingy. Other online games
created by him include Bloomings (2012) and Memory Mastermind (2013).
How Many Geometry Dash Levels Are There?

Apart from the 21 levels in the original Geometry Dash, fans of the cube have made millions and millions (yeah, you read that right - millions and millions!) of Geometry Dash levels for you to try out. Geometry Dash fan-made levels are readily available online.
Fan-made Geometry Dash levels are possible because the game has a level creation feature. You can create your very own custom level with as much difficulty, or ease, as you please. Once you think it's all good, you can share it online for other fans to play.

How to play Geometry Dash
You can play the original Geometry Dash using a mouse, keyboard, controller, or touchscreen device. Press or hold to get your cube to jump, run, roll, bounce, fly, glide, and swim through each level.
Portals, pads, and orbs help increase the player's interaction with the game. Use these to teleport, change gravity, change your speed, or change the size of your icon. Collect as many coins, stars, diamonds, or orbs as you can along the way. The level restarts each time you crash into something so be careful.
Apart from helping you unlock levels, your rewards are also useful for buying stuff in the in-game shops. What kind of stuff? Well, you can buy new icons and we're sure you'll see plenty that you like. Or, you can buy new colors for your icon - to suit your personality or your mood, perhaps. Plus the secret areas offer rewards, such as secret levels.
Geometry Dash Tips and Tricks
• Keep pace with the music.
The aim of the game is really to keep pace with the beat of the music. You'll find that once you do, you'll make much better progress through each level.
• Don't stress over it.
Let's face it, nobody dances all that well when they're stressed out. Keep calm as you play, taking all of the game’s ups and downs in stride. By keeping your composure, you'll be better able to time your movements to the rhythm of the game's unique soundtracks.
• Practice, practice, practice!
Each level in the original Geometry Dash becomes easier with practice. Practice lets you “feel” the music better and you become better able to play in sync with it. You will also get to understand more of how each game mode works when you practice the game. Make use of the practice levels or just in or just practice playing the regular levels over and over again, you'll master them in no time.
• Challenge yourself.
Yes, playing the easier levels can provide some relaxation when you need it! But, you can make the game a nice challenge for you by playing at the highest difficulty you think you are capable of mastering. Apart from being a challenge, it's a good way to quickly collect those orbs that you will need to get demon keys and other special items in the game.
Sharing what you've learned with the Geometry Dash community and learning from them really helps your understanding of the game and will boost how well you play.
