About This Game

Super Hexagon is a minimal action game by Terry Cavanagh, with music by Chipzel.

Important facts about Hexagons:

  • Hexagons are first order permutohedrons: The vertices of a hexagon can be formed by permuting the coordinates of the vector (1, 2, 3).
  • The north pole of the planet Saturn has a hexagonal storm cloud pattern with 8,600 mile long sides, larger than the diameter of Earth.
  • Though hexagon may appear to be a difficult word to rhyme, there are actually dozens of words that rhyme with it. For example: Autobahn, decagon, decathlon, electron, Kyrgzstan, Lebanon, leprechaun and marathon.

What kind of a game is Super Hexagon?
It's six times harder than a long marathon
It's far more dangerous than doing decathlon
It's like driving a car on a bad autobahn
Harder than taking gold from a leprechaun
Fiercer than civil war in Lebanon
Hotter than a summer in Kyrgyzstan
It's wrong like positively charged electron
Made my brain look like a decagon.

WARNING: May cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, spontaneous combustion and explosions, or semi-death.

Super Hexagon... Super Hexagon... Super Hexagon...

You feel the sudden urge to chant this as you indulge yourself if a world full of trippy colors, spinning objects, and sudden death. Yes... sudden death. Is this some type of new drug? Very likely... Is it some type of common drug with a twist? Still very likely... Is Super Hexagon a new type of parasite bent on taking over humanity? OF COURSE IT IS. Why else would it be what it is?

You cannot control yourself as you press the start button, and begin your journey...
"Game Over... Begin." "Game Over... Begin." "Game Over... Begin." "Game Over... Begin." "Game Over... Begin." "Game Over... Begin."
It is as if it is trying to brain wash you. Is it working? Is it there? IS THIS EVEN REAL? Of course it is. It's Super Hexagon.

You cannot give up on the addiction so easily. You continue to try and try again until you pass out from utter and complete exhaustion... or is it because the flashing colors are just to much for you to handle for another second in this twisted world? WAIT. NO.... THAT WILL NOT STOP YOU!

5 seconds completed... 7 seconds completed... 10 seconds completed... 14 SECONDS COMPLETED! You're making your way through this incredible world now. Nothing will stop you. NOTHING! Until you meet the doom known has squares and triangles.

Can you race to the end? Will you get gruesomely impaled by a triangle? Will the squares brain wash you into thinking it is a hexagon? Find out by joining the addiction known as...
SUPER HEXAGON... SUPER ADDICTIVE. SUPER DRUG. SUPER HEXAGON, TRIANGLE, SQUARE THINGSSSSSS!!!!!

Super hexagon
Super hexagon
Super hexagon
Super hexagon
SUUPPPPPEEEEERRRRR HEXAGONNNNNN!!!!!

THE FINAL VERDICT: Super Hexagon is very addictive, yet will make you very angry. When you first play it, you will most likely die... alot. Again, and again, and again to be exact. Yet no matter how angry you get, you'll most likely come back and try to beat it again. If you like these type of games then Super Hexagon is great! It also has a very nice, retro soundtrack with makes it even better. I give Super Hexagon 7/10 evil triangles and squares.

I wish i could more than reccomend this game. This is the most fun "get as far as you can" game I have ever played ever. I normally play something like this and I say, "Oh well isn't this cool" *click click* bored. This game has kept me coming back for more i have never played one of these games so much. It is so worth the money, I am honestly willing to buy this for one broke boy just to show them how awesome a game this is (SERIOUSLY PM ME IF YOU WANT IT AND YOU CANT AFFORD IT) I would feel bad if someone just looked at it and thought, bahh it's too much money for a bunch of hexagons and stuff. I swear this game is worth the buy and if you don't like it, then send me a hate message saying ♥♥♥♥ you "DUDE" (whatever my name may be at that time) and i will say i guess not everyone likes krabby patties. (I love you if you get that reference and episode it was from). BUT YEA GET THIS ♥♥♥♥ING GAME I SWEAR YOU WILL LIKE IT.

On top of it all it is not rage inducing at all, you feel like you would get mad dying 1,000 times but it is just pure fun, no anger included. I don't know why it doesn't make me or my girlfriend rage but it just doesn't. PERFECT GAME FOR ANYONE WITH A BIT OF REFLEXES.

TLDR (BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT, If you are broke and truly want it i'll see what i can do, if i get too overwhelmed with greedy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s sorry. NOT RAGE INDUCING AT ALL.)

EDIT: I have given too many games it is getting overwhelming i'm sorry i am not rich.

Really great and challenging game to train your reflexes and have a little fun. It's really difficult but still rewarding when you get a new record or get to a new level.
I like to play this when I'm in CSGO lobby waiting for a match to be found since a lot of times it's just boring waiting.
Recommended for anyone! A great killer of sparetime and for this low price it's truly worth it!

This game is incredible. With keyboard-breaking gameplay and a soundtrack that manages to be repetiteve without losing its freshness, you'll love it. It's incredibly challenging and addicting and will make you hate yourself and the fleshy bone-filled tubes you call fingers.

11/10 Would hate myself again.

I would say that this game is great fun, however frustrating.
The camera pans around and such, causing great disorientation. It's obvious that this was intended and, for the easier levels(hard and harder), is what makes the game difficult. It's a very simple concept, don't hit the walls. It's much harder than it looks though, and requires some good reaction times. As a note: turn off v-sync, doing so reduces input lag which is quite helpful. Me and a friend are currently playing againsed eachother to figure out who can get the best times. I'm winning.

This is pretty much the perfect arcade game.

Start off not being able to get past seconds of the first level, then eventually get to the highway speeds of the other levels that make the previous ones feel like slowing down in a neighborhood school zone with children crossing the street licking lollipops, proceeding to skip back to their houses to put aside their assignments in order to play Super Hexagon.

Go pick it up when it's on sale, it's good.

I absolutely love this game. I'm addicted. The music is amazing, and the patterns are intricate and complex (yet not so much that you can't figure them out eventually). Overall it's a really good game that I would reccomend to anyone. Just prepare to be a little frustrated if you expect some soft, easy-going game. Super Hexagon is intense.

Super hexagon.
Super Hexagon are illuminati confirmed.
Hexagon
a hexagon has 6 sides
you can draw 6 lines to the center of a hexagon
the lines divide it in 6 triangles
6/6=1
the illuminati is one triangle
the drawn lines to the center look like a pupil
eyes have pupils
the illuminati triangle has one eye...
SUPER HEXAGON EQUALS ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED!!

Easy to pick up hard to master, Super Hexagon offers such a challenge that only massochistic people with a lot of free time on their hands (like me) will ever finish or get close to finishing. If you like a challenge, definitely pick this one up.

This hypnotising little hexagon of a game requires extreme concentration and perfect reflex skills making it incredibly rage-inducing yet superbly addictive in a way that other games fall short.
