You can beat this game in less than 3 minutes.
You can 100% complete this game in less than 7 minutes.
But let's be honest, it will probably take you multiple hours to do so.
10/10 would get epilepsy again.

Get it and play it on the biggest screen you have. Would reccomend playing with people as it gives you the chance to calm down for a few seconds between each turn. seizure/10

Word of warning: this game is not for everyone. Super hexagon is a moderately difficult avoidance game with rhythim trappings. It only has a few tracks, but each is unique and, to my ears, quite nice. The gameplay is repetitive, quick, sometimes frenetic and always frustrating.

Essentially hexagon is a game about pattern recognition and reflex tests. If you arent quick fingered, you wont go far. Don't let that dissuade you, as there is a lot of quick fun to be had here. if you're more of a mobile game type you'll probably find a lot of love here for your cash

Speaking of money, super hexagon is quite cheap and provides a lot of bang for your buck. You wont be playing for long stretches, but do expect to put in 5 minutes here and there. Its a great way to waste time, but it can be repetitive.

You should buy this, but try to get it when its on sale (2, maybe 3 bucks) and DONT play for long stretches. Have fun!

Had this on my Lumia 640, loved it. Takes some time to master, and it's much more difficult on PC in my opinion. I don't like the keyboard controls - feels too stretched - prefer to use the dpad on my 360 controller. Overall it's an enjoyable challenge if you're willing to take time to learn how to play.

If you had asked me if I am good at challenging games, I would have said yes, I am good at them and I love them. I still love them but I can't say I am good at them anymore. This game taught me a life lesson. There is always more. If you like challenging games which you fail very often, buy this game but if you are a person who cries instead of being inspired to do better when he fails, don't waste your money.

I want to thank to my friend Baslam who has given me this game. :)

Have fun!

"Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin. Game over. Begin." Is what you'll be hearing throughout the entire game. Sometimes you won't even know where the arrow is going. I'm convinced this is what LSD feels like. It's challenging, but like drugs, you'll be hooked.

Super fun and addicting gameplay with a lot of challenge. Basically the game thrives on its difficulty and does it in a good way. The gameplay persists of you controlling a small triangle in the middle of a screen attached to a small hexagon that you can only move in a circular format around, you then must try to dodge lines coming your way and make it as far as possible, 1 minutes is needed to complete the level. The music is very good but can get very repetitive when first trying to learn a level, because you are going to fail... ALOT, but it just has those hooks that keep you coming back and because its so easy to jump in and play I find myself palying it when I have 5-10mins to kill. Highly recommend it if your a person who enjoys challenging games.
