I purchased this game years ago and just beat it after 35 hours of play time. Feels like one of the bigger accomplishments I've had in gaming. Excellent, addicitve game that's worth way more than the price if you're into this type of game.

Amazing game. It's one of those try-untill-you-beat-it Games, but it does an amazing job at that. you have to keep trying the levels over and over, but that's overruled but the game's amazing soundrack and level design.

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Super Hexagon.

First, it taught me perseverance. When I started playing, even Hexagon mode seemed impossible. The first time I saw Hyper Hexagonest, it moved too fast for me to comprehend what was going on. But with sufficient time and practice, I can now beat even the hardest mode without too much pain and suffering. It taught me the lesson: even if something seems impossible, you can master it if you put your mind to it.

Second, it taught me to accept failure, and not take it as a judgment of self. Even though I know I'm good at the game, I often still fail Hyper Hexagonest within a matter of seconds. But with a couple of tries, I can easily last the whole minute. Even if I fail at something catastrophically, I can keep my head up and not give up.

Finally, it taught me patience and to keep cool under pressure. When I hear that voice emotionlessly utter "pentagon," I know to not let it get to my head and focus on the task at hand.

But if that isn't enough for you, the killer music, tight controls, and addictive gameplay make this game a must-buy.

No other game will make you rage saying "DARN IT I WAS A MILLISECOND AWAY FROM GETTING TO THE PENTAGON" while at the same time dying of a seizure. 10/10 best game IGN










In all seriousness, this game is awesome. Definitely pick it up if you can.

The objects I'm failing to avoid represent my gay thoughts. A deep and sombering experience with neon colours.

i remember the first time i played this game, it was around 2013. I had it on my Samsung Galaxy S1 when i was last year of high school. I used to play ♥♥♥♥ out of that game, every break i would play it, and people were like duuuude i feel like im high. I mostly just responded with yeah, ikr or so as the game is very hard and doesn't forgive mistakes, so you had to concentrate on the game. I remember the first time i beat the last level. I was in backseat we had math(i really hated math and still do), so i was playing it i won the last level i jumped up and yelled "♥♥♥♥ YES". Everyone was staring at me, my friends were facepalming, teacher was like can u repeat that? I said "Heck yeah". I was called into principal's office. It was all worth it.
I loved the game for the hardness and for the soundtrack, they were so good at the time, and they are still awesome. I love the game 10\10 would bang the ♥♥♥♥ out of this game
