Polygon provides visuals similar to Windows' Mystify Your Mind screensaver (an HTML canvas recreation thereof can be seen at http://www.mystifyyourmind.com). Though Polygon runs in much lower resolution, it provides a variety of options not found in it's inspiration, including: more complex shapes (up to 99 vertices); significantly longer trails (up to 149 iterations long); curved edges; and more varied movements.
Do nothing graphics program for DOS that does what WIndow's MYSTIFY should have.
Options can be set either via a set of command line options, or keypresses during a run. 'F1' will provide in program help.
Polygon doesn't provide palette rotation, but if set on infinite trail mode some color changes will occur as the program runs out of colors for newly drawn polygons. At which point it starts to assign new colors to previously used ones, causing scintillation in polygons > 255 tails behind.
