Geometry Dash Down Bass
Geometry Dash Down Bass is a solo Extreme Demon level rated 10 stars and 3 user coins developed and initially hacked-verified by Spectra, but it was rated when RedUniverse genuinely defeated it on broadcast to convince RobTop to rate it. The replica of Nine Circles is exceedingly challenging.
On August 25, 2016, Spectra's new, harsher version of Down Bass was hack-verified by a player known as TheRealSneaky. Significant boosts in the wave and mini-wave components, as well as a few visual modifications, are the most visible alterations. Down Bass is an extremely tough Nine Circles level with a lime color scheme, as seen at the beginning of the level when the lettering states "Lime Circles" (updated to Down Bass in the latest update). The opening and finale are sunset-themed, complete with skyscrapers and cranes. The level used to utilise 2.0 effects to mock the player, but they have been mainly deleted. However, the decoration remains 2.0-esque, and the user money remain on the level.
Deep Bass is the anticipated official sequel to Down Bass.
The level begins with a basic cube and a few gimmicks. Then comes a simple ship section with gaps. The level then enters a basic cube with easy orbs to leap before the wave.
The song soon becomes Nine Circles. This long wave dominates the level. It begins with a spam wave that needs consistent clicking, followed by a mini-wave. Next comes a challenging portion that many players consider the hardest part of the level, which begins with a dual with tight timings and a tight mini-wave. After a brief, simple wave, the gameplay slows down. After this, the action speeds up with a dazzling wave segment with a weird click pattern. Next comes a mini-wave spam with irregular and shaky transitions, followed by a dual spam that's challenging to enter. After this, the game becomes simpler, with basic timings, a few fakes, and straightforward gameplay. Next, there's a hard-controlled mini-wave spam that's simple to goof up, followed by an easy phase where the player may collect the first coin, followed by an easy dual with a terrible transition out of it. Next comes a challenging section with tight gameplay, demanding controlled spam, precise timing, and hard micro clicking, followed by a basic part with a bright backdrop and a sluggish break cube. The last wave begins with a challenging wave with narrow artificial passageways, followed by a mini-wave spam. Two additional tight fakes are followed by a challenging and stressful final spam with a hard-controlled mini-wave and multiple gravity portals.
The player must pass an easy cube and ball with numerous phony orbs and gravity portals if they survive the wave. The player will change into a cube and tumble through a teleport portal if they pass this. The level finishes when they change into a UFO and evade several unseen spikes. A wave with tricky timings and flashing stars was eliminated.

Wespdx was able to get his channel back, and is now the official broadcaster along with Iris.
- This level is often called "Barf Circles" due to its unappetizing color scheme.
