Don't blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't blink. Good Luck.

"Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin ..." is something that you will hear very often once you decide to give this challenging, fast paced game a spin (no pun intented). A game that can be beaten in just 6 minutes, but that'll most likeley take atleast a couple of hours instead. If you think you won't feel the urge to throw your computer out of the window after spinning around mathematical shapes for hours and hours - whilst listening to amazing music - read on. Or better said: begin!

A closer look

You take on the role of a little triangle and have to avoid getting hit by mathematical shapes that close in on you at high (and increasing) speed. You do this by moving your triangle to the right or left - very simple indeed - which is quite difficult (at first). That is just about it as far as gameplay goes and may seem to get boring quickly, but that is luckily not the case. There is just something about moving around different patterns and objects at high speed while headbanging to the amazing music.

Controlling the triangle is easy: you either use the mouse, arrow keys or a controller. The controls are also very tight, so if you lose, you can only blame it on yourself. You should then either practice more or you could try to switch between kb/m & controller to see with which you truly shine.

As I mentioned above, completing the game could take as little as 6 minutes - 1 minute per stage. Naturally it'll take much longer, as your brain doesn't know how to react to this game (yet). That makes it highly replayable since learning these patterns is not something you can do right away. It's all about that muscle memory. Each stage has different patterns that occur somewhat randomly, however, after playing for a while you'll be able to react quickly and appropriately to (almost) any given situation.

Graphically, this game is nothing special, but it does have an interesting art style (like most indie games). There are a lot of different colors to be found in each stage that change and vary. The shapes are also straightforward (as they should be) and don't tend to be vague. Something that may keep people away from playing though: The combination of bright/changing colors and the fast rotations may cause headaches.

The best feature of this game - for sure - is its amazing soundtrack composed by Chipzel, who makes 8-bit music for different games. Were it not for these amazing tunes, I would've never had the courage to keep playing and eventually finish the game. Some say playing the game without sound may let you focus more. Honestly though, you really won't get the 'true' Super Hexagon feeling and experience without the music.

I wouldn't describe this game as being a 'pure fun' one per se, but it sure gets your blood pumping. Besides the adrenaline rush, there is also a high sense of satisfaction when you finally beat that one stage. Or even more so when you beat the whole game: I felt ecstatic when I witnessed the end, which is a really weird, yet unique ending to a game. I never knew that a 'silly, little' game like this could make me feel so emotional after completing it, but it sure did. Even now, I like to come back to the game regularly to try and increase my highscore or just to enjoy the soundtrack some more.

Pros and cons

+ Simple, yet fun concept
+ Addictive & satisfying
+ Amazing soundtrack
+ Sweet pricetag

+- May cause headaches (though that is personal)

Final verdict

For this low price, I definitely recommend it for everyone to try. You may be surprised at how good you are at this game. And even if you aren't: practice is key! People who love difficult games on the other hand, will probably enter heaven. With that being said: begi- GAME OVER.

If you decide to downvote the review, I'd appreciate it if you let me know why (in a polite manner) so that I can improve upcoming reviews. Thanks!

"Survive the deadly spinning swirl for at least 60 secs"
Quite challenging quick reactions game. The one sided opened hexagons flow in concentric circles to the center where you little triangle shouldn't confront them. Distracting rotations and color changes don't make it easier. There are random pattern modes like line, triangle, square and pentagon. Holdout 1 min and the stage is clear. After you beat all 3 stages there comes the "hypermode" which is the even more "hardestest". You must also deal with the 8bit drum'n'bass soundtrack.
