      Found it elsewhere, hopefully ppl coming here after me will read this and not follow your instructions retards:
      "Simply go left and hug the left wall until you find a glitch that lets you go out of bounds."

        None of these worked for me. I played it like 50 times.
        I did the following:
        - destroyed only pillars
        - destroyed only 4 inner objects
        - destroyed everything in different orders, starting with a different one in each time
        - didn't destroy anything, but went close to all of them without getting dmg and the moving into middle section next to the boss
        - right away moved to boss without destroying anything
        - moving around the objects in the inner circle, not killing any of them
        - trying to use the boss to push the inner objects next to each other
        - trying to move the boss unit to go next to the pillars

        I want to express my disappointment in the ppl commenting before me for not being able to describe the solution properly - which is also true for the wiki description. Honestly this was just a waste of time.

          Simply moving towards the boss without killing anything was enough. You don't have to destroy one pillar only. Simply avoid all enemies.

            For me the bugging bugged the actual game. Meaning that I got stuck in the glitched interface with out having the ability to get out of the hacking space. I can pause the game but I cant exit the game with out forcing it close. This was on my first attempt at it.

              To make the game bug this time, you have to destroy one of the pillars, and enter the ball chamber without destroying the other one.
