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).

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.

It took me 16.5 hours to complete a game which has a total of 6 minutes of gameplay. Amazing way to kill time, and yourself.

WARNING:
This game can be harmful for your brain.
Symptoms includes:
Serious brain Injury, dizziness, headache, blindness, high level of anger, fever, unconsciousness, itchiness, nausea, insomnia, trauma, hallucinations, sweating, fear, heart attack, and death.
Super Hexagon is an Indie Game, where in the beginning your mind starts to freak out, and suffer from the fear, and uneasiness.
Very challenging, very addictive and good for training your reaction and especially your vision. (Not kidding!)
The music is created by Niamh "Chipzel" Houston. It's truly amazing and it suits the gameplay perfectly well.

Before you start to play a game, I recommend you to read my guide, about the basics of the game. I highly recommend you to read it, even if you're not a beginner:

Hopefully you're not going to suffer, and have those symptoms, which I wrote on top of this review.

Don't worry about symptoms. Just stay focused! Because, You'll be Fine! :D

Have Fun! ^.^

I haven't spent all that much time playing this game, because it is ridiculously difficult. Despite the difficulty, this game is great for occasional changes of pace and momentary distractions. Hex On!! (Note: I am not licensed to dispense medical advice, but if you are epileptic this might not be the game for you.)

Simply amazing and addictive gameplay and an absolutely EPIC soundtrack, this game may be frustrating but when you finally master the Hexagon, it's simply amazing. HIGHLY recommended for anyone who likes a challenge and good music. Easy 10/10
