"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."

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.

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!

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!

I like the concept & the difficulty & I beat the first difficulty level in about 40 minutes. What I don't like is that the hardest patterns are so rare & random that you're more likely to win by replaying until those patterns don't come up than you are to win by getting good enough to deal with those patterns. It's like playing Slow Ride in Guitar Hero 3 with a random chance of having to suddenly play random riffs from The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

The second worst thing about this game is the difficulty spikes. You'll likely find yourself beating some levels in seconds but getting stuck on other levels for a few dozen minutes or more. A few dozen minutes might not sound bad but it takes a lot of deaths for you to be stuck on a 45 second level for a few dozen minutes.

If you're incredibly patient & you don't mind an incredibly irratic & inconsistent difficulty curve, you'll probably like this game but, otherwise, I wouldn't reccomend it.

I can't tell if this game is awesome music with really good gameplay, or awesome gameplay with really good music. Whatever the case, it's pure addicting fun, definitely recommended.

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.

It may cost $3 but it will cost you over $1,000 for damages to your computer for raging.

Super hexagon is not responsable for any damages to your computer or yourself.
