"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."

"A masterpiece of design purity."

"This is the kind of game you’re going to pass off to your friends and say, 'You’ve gotta check this out.' It’s dangerously addictive."

Super Hexagon is an indie video game developed by Terry Cavanagh and released on November 27th, 2012, for PC.

It's a simple twitch game in which player is given control of a small triangle, which circles around a figure (hexagon, pentagon or square), and needs to avoid the incoming obstacles in order to survive.

Pros:
• Simple, yet challenging gameplay;
• High replay value;
• Highly addictive;
• Wonderful, memorable soundtrack;
• Global and friends-only leaderboards;
• Unforgettable emotions after completing the Hyper Hexagonest stage;
• Low price;

Cons:
• Only 6 different levels;
• No widescreen support;

In fact, this game is an excellent example of how a good indie game should look like. The idea is not only very original, but is also perfectly brought to life, and the soundtrack fits the game splendidly. All in all, Super Hexagon is totally worth the money, and the emotions upon completion are totally worth the effort.

Overall rating: 9/10.

Addictive. Rage inducing. Beat your record and try to be better than your friends and then realize you have wasted hours of your life trying to avoid walls closing in on the little triangle. 6/6 hexagons!

This is probably one of the hardest games to play beccause in order to do good you have to not be trying to do good. Great music.

You overshoot? "Game Over"
You undershoot? "Game Over"
You blink? "Game Over"
You break concentration for one nanosecond? "Game Over"

Soundtrack is among the very best on steam, but "Game Over" will be most of what you get to hear until you git gud.

A 6 minute that takes forever to complete. You just wait level 6, I will get that 60+ seconds clear time threshold one day ... Really good time waster game like waiting in queue for League match to pop up. The music fits with the dynamic patterns that you must dodge but eventually causing the demise of your record. Game Over/ 10, would play again!
