This cactus is UNDER CONSTRUCTION
This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Hmmm...
To do:
Several things:
  • Inspect anything related to 2.2 Update, what was added, used, deleted, etc.
  • Song table probably isn't the best way of displaying that information, especially since it's half used content.
  • Update history is much more complicated than this and really deserves its own sub-page, especially since some of the little information here (about the coins) seems to be either really badly worded or inaccurate.
  • A lot of stuff from this video
  • Unused levels leftover from Meltdown and World.
  • Add ID's to unused objects

Geometry Dash is a game that started as a ripoff of The Impossible Game, but ends up being better than it.

Prerelease Info

Unused Graphics

Geometry Dash World

Worlds

I'm just fine. I'm all sideways.

Graphics from the worlds in Geometry Dash World exist in the game. They were exported in high graphics during the 2.11 update on PC, but Geometry Dash on mobile only supports up to medium quality graphics.

Get Orbs

Get ORB'd

In Geometry Dash World, players were able to, in the shop, watch a video advertisement for 100 orbs. This was only available in the iOS version, and was redrawn for high graphics, while mobile only supports medium graphics.

Unused Icons

There exists 2 versions of unused icons, with both each having the "No" symbol over it. The checkpoint icons are known to be from an earlier build of the game, as the tutorial shows auto checkpoints with this button.

These are stored with the button to toggle music lines, which is in the game's level editor pause menu. That icons was used on the oldest versions of the game.

Everyplay Button

The Windows version of Geometry Dash has sprites for a "watch replay" button.

This was used in the mobile version of Geometry Dash, for the now defunct Everyplay functionality, where you could view and share level replays.

Heh, should've used a screen recorder, loser.

Unused Blocks

Hmmm...
To do:
There's certainly more objects that have been replaced. Check old levels and older versions.

Start Pos Block

This one doesn't know what it's doing.

This is a block that uses the Start Position's graphic.

Before update 2.0, it was not visible in play mode and didn't have collision. Now it acts as a regular block, with no special features. The block uses ID: 34. When loaded in old versions of the game, it would contain the text 'Level End'. It had no function.

Unused Fade Effect (2.1)

Why is everything spinning around my screen?

This block was added back in 2.2. In 2.1, it's an unused fade effect. It's fairly glitchy (i.e certain objects move way too much), suggesting this was just a test. The block uses ID: 55

Like the Start Pos Block, it was not visible in play mode and didn't have collision before update 2.0. Now it has a normal block collision, it's visible and it still works! But in 2.2, is was fixed and it's not a block anymore.

Lined Blocks

The block set used mostly in Clubstep and Electroman Adventures has been replaced with non-solid variants. The original blocks were kept for compatibility reasons and are currently unavailable in the editor. GD Unused clubstep.png

Old Color Triggers

Has anyone ever noticed how big this thing is?
GeometryDash-LineTrigger.png
GeometryDash-ObjectTrigger.png

In update 2.1, the color triggers were unified. The old color triggers were kept in the game for compatibility reasons, and can now only be accessed through old levels. In 2.2, now they're shown as normal Col triggers.

Unused Levels

Versions 1.0 to 1.3 contained entries for then-future levels "Time Machine", "Cycles" and "xStep" before their release. While typically inaccessible, when these levels were played, a placeholder level was used alongside the music for each level. All three entries used the same placeholder level.

A copy of this level is playable as a user created level (ID: 78386775), with Cycles used as the music.

Hidden Songs

There are hidden songs in the game's level editor. The first 21 slots are selectable in the game, but there are actually 37 slots. Most of these are used in Geometry Dash Meltdown, Geometry Dash World, or Geometry Dash SubZero.

The slots 24 to 26, 28 to 37 and 38 to 40 are not used in the main game, but are used in other editions of Geometry Dash. 25 uses the song from The Challenge and 00 and 36 uses Back on Track. The unused songs' music files were later added to the game in update 2.11, and SubZero songs were added in 2.2, but the options to use them are not shown.
Slot 41+ will show as unknown, as it is the default case in the switch statement that determines the song name and filename.

Revisional Changes

1.9 - 2.0

User coins were added in 2.0 which could be added to user levels and collected to get achievements.
A glitch that pushed away an icon if it was affected by many speed portals in dual mode was fixed, however, that in turn made some levels impossible.

In 2.1

Levels didn't have special Demon types. The levels that had a Demon rating changed to either Easy, Medium, Hard, Insane, or Extreme Demon. This is to let players know how hard the Demon is. The Hard Demon graphic reuses the old Demon graphic. New slope objects were added to allow for redone collisions. A similar change also occurred to many blocks that used the color black, which gave them a new object that had the ability to be colored to any color.
