Reviews

“It quickly reaches those magnificent moments where you’re working out new rules on the fly, realising that if you apply previously acquired understandings you can make logical leaps and eliminate or highlight in a brand new way. Those are special moments that only very few puzzle games manage.”

One of the finest puzzlers I've ever played. The music is soothing and the levels get better as you progress. I'm ashamed that I didn't pick up Hexcells sooner!

I highly recommend this game to everyone, even those that aren't into the genre. You will not regret it.

Game Series

Hexcells is the first game of its' series.

Game Visual/Audio

There isn't much can be said about the game's visuals asides from that they're minimalistic. Pretty much the same thing can be said about the game's audio.

Gameplay

There is no difficulty mode option that's assigned. But each of the puzzles has their own difficult.

Hexcells is closely similar to mine sweeper game. So the objective is rather simple to figure out which cells to make blue and which cells to make black.

There are total of three slots with six world that has twenty-four puzzles to solve. The first world for each of the three slots are automatically unlocked. Completing one world will unlocked the next one. All of these puzzles can be replayed after the first go around. Please do note that the puzzles in the other two slots are the same as the ones in the first slot.

There's no time limit in this game. Allowing the individual take as much time that they want to solve each of the puzzles.

There six achievements for this game. Each of these achievements has certain requirements before they can be unlocked.

Miscellaneous

Final thoughts, it's an neat game to play and enjoy. As for the game's replay value it's low. I would recommend this game but not at the full price.

It's like Sudoku and Minesweeper.


EDIT:
Oh, and get the Complete Pack for the best value; all 3 games are worthwhile.

If you're cheaping out, just get Hexcells Infinite for the random puzzle generator.
