Like the Android operating system? Want to play one of the best arcade games of 2012? Good, unless you’re a Nexus 7 owner that is.

The Android port of Super Hexagon is “basically done”, according to developer Terry Cavanagh in a blog post on the game’s progress. The bad news is that the developer alongside Laurence Muller have ran into quite a serious bug on Google’s Nexus 7 tablet.

While testing Super Hexagon on the Nexus 7 the developers noticed a bit of input lag. Some developers could get away with this, but not a fast-paced arcade game like Super Hexagon. Cavanagh puts it simply as ”even a slight control responsiveness issue like this basically kills Super Hexagon – every single touch overshoots.”

This essentially leaves the game broken on possibly the most popular Android tablet out there currently. While players could get by in the early levels, the later levels are rendered impossible to pass. The next step in the development process is to see if there’s similar issues on other Android devices. If there is, they’ll end up releasing the game ”very soon for any Android device that can handle it.” As of right now it looks like Cavanagh has no plans of releasing a build that works with the Nexus 7.
