There's a brief moment when I glance up at the energy counter in the top corner of the screen and my palms start to sweat. 99 percent.
I only need to touch another energy tile and I'll have unlocked this particle. I leap across a gap, darting left to land on a disappearing platform, then double-press to punch-it across the next gap.
Ahead of me a blue block, an energy tile, slides into place. It's a handful of seconds away, easily within reach. And then I get hit by a bolt of lightning.
There's a poof of pixels and my run ends. It's a new high score, the game tells me. I can't type what I tell the game.
A spectacular kick in the teeth of the endless-runner genre, Boson X is a brilliant, twitching wonder
