"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."

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.

Incredible!

Aiiiiiiiiyiyiyiyi~ two levels from the win!
I can literally feel the blood flowing through my brain when I'm playing this.

I think the most important thing for a game of this sort is to have tight physics so that if you die it's ALWAYS your fault.
This game has those tight physics, and... well... it's always my fault. ;_;

Just look at the trailer, and that's exactly what this game is.

Can be frustrating, and requires fast reaction times when choosing which set of movements to match to the next sequence of shapes. Can be kind of addictive.

Remember to turn off vsync.

Not for everyone, but a good game if you like this genre of thing.

This game is very challenging and requires fast reaction times. It took me 30 hours to complete all 6 levels. Great game for £2!

Terry Cavanagh is a genius. This game is a masterpiece. We should all be grateful there's someone great enough to provide us this experience: better, cheaper and weirder than LSD.

Pros:
  • Challenging
  • Extremely rewarding
  • Cheap
  • Easy to pick up and put down

Cons:
  • Learning curve makes you feel pretty bad about yourself for a while
  • Last level feels overwhelmingly difficult
  • Can be frustrating
  • No way to make it easier on the eyes for sensitive people
  • Probably could give an epileptic a seizure

Even if you're unsure of whether or not you'll enjoy this game, I would still say buy it. It's cheap enough not to leave a dent in your wallet either way.
If you buy it and struggle, don't give up! The difficulty can be pretty discouraging especially when you first start out!

Super Hexagon


It is one of the first in it's genre and also the best.

GamePlay:
The control of this game just needs to press 2 Buttons. ←,→ or LeftMouse, RightMouse;
The Game is very simple, yet challenging.. The name already tells us that this game has to do with hexagons and yes. You're playing a triangle which moves in circles around a hexagon, trying to avoid the bar comming from outside to the middle. The first Level is a bit special, because the hexagon turns into a Square and back.
Anyway, I suppose more than 4 points isn't possible. :/
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Graphics:
hmmmm... Simple... and perhaps you feel like the 3rd Level is on LSD.^^ But all in one this graphic fits to the game.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Leveldesign:
As I've already mentioned it, e.g. the first Level has the Square-Special-Thing, many Levels have different stuff to offer. The 3rd Level has a quick 180° turn, which is quite confusing if you're not common with that.^^

Something which is impossible to avoid, is to memories some patterns of certain level. Which pattern appears is random, but they look always the same and of course it's a useful skill to win. :)

After you've got 60 sec. on a level the level changes from: Lvl1 -> Lvl4, Lvl2 -> Lvl5, Lvl3 -> Lvl6,
Lvl4 -> Lvl4(Special), Lvl5 -> Lvl5(Special), Lvl6 -> Lvl6(Special) [Note: A Special Level is the part after 60 sec of a certain Level beyond 3!]
After 120 sec. the Level changes again and so on.
(e.g. If you start at Lvl1 -> Lvl4 -> Lvl4(Special) -> Lvl5 -> Lvl5(Special) -> Lvl6 -> Lvl6(Special)

So you see they prevent an repetition by changing the levels.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Music:

Music:
First the music was not my taste. After playing longer and longer, it get better and better. So at the end I really liked the music.^^ A bit weird, isn't it?
The Game contains 3 ½ Soundtrack. Each Lvl pair 1-4,2-5,3-6 have one and the ending song which is actually a reversed version of the last one. That's why I wrote ½. :p

btw: After you finish the 6th Level (get 60 sec.) you've beaten the game and when you die, a kind of credits appear. The game plays the music of the last Level reversed and the bars now came out of the hexagon. It was an amazing feeling and of course a awesome ending.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

At the end, i think it's worth to buy Super Hexagon. Makes fun. Cheap. Challenging.
Sadly just 4/5 Points... :/
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
