Geometry Dash Lite introductions
On 28th May 2014, Geometry Dash Lite was updated to 1.7 with the following:
- New level "Can't Let Go"!
- New achievements and rewards!
- Bug fixes and tweaks.
- There is a reverse 2x speed portal coloured orange in one of the pictures. However, such a portal does not exist in the game; it may be an earlier design for the slow speed portal.
- This update introduces the normal speed and slow speed portals to the level editor, though they did not make an appearance to Electrodynamix, instead their formal appearance was in Hexagon Force, which was added as part of Update 1.8.
- There is a ball in the second preview that did not make it in the game.
- Also in the second preview, the Demolicious! icon does not accurately resemble what it looks like currently.
