"It’s about momentum, speed, grace under pressure. When I play it, I don’t blink. When I die, I’m never frustrated. In moments when it has me in rapt attention on its dancefloor, it’s the greatest game in the world."

Next gen games have about 6 hours of gameplay, and I've played them for like 2 hours and spent 60 dollars on them.

Super Hexagon has 6 minutes of gameplay, but I've still played it more than 20 hours (mobile included) and I paid 30 cents for it.

Quality. Game.

This game is lifechanging. Entering the dimension of Super Hexagon is a trip that your body and mind alike will never forget. From the minute you press play and select your first level, you are immersed in a world where nothing is wrong. All your worries escape you. For the few seconds you play on your first level, and even every time you enter a level afterwards, you are filled with joy and all fears become easily conquerable. It truly is a feeling of bliss, and I can't get enough of it. Be careful when you enter this utopia, however, because your mind has the possibility of getting emotionally attached. You might not want to leave this wonderland. You might want to drop out of school, or leave your job. You need to remember that reality is where you earn the money to pay for electricity, and you need electricity to play Super Hexagon. The two realities live in perfect harmony. When you play Super Hexagon, you can feel the small triangle as a part of you. You develop feelings for the triangle. It becomes your best friend. It becomes YOU. To succeed, you need to embrace the triangle and embrace your addiction to this game, whether you realize you have it or not (you do).
