“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.”

Nice little game (very basic design and ambient music). Gameplay is something between sudoku and minesweeper. The last few levels are the best for me because you can see more depth in logic of this game. I did it in two sittings without any rush.

This is a modern revision of Minesweeper. Unlike Minesweeper the boards aren't randomly generated and can be solved purely by logic. There are lots of interesting methods to solve whether a cell is shaded or not. It's fun brain exercise but unfortunately light on content as you can 100% it in a couple hours. It's also clearly a mobile port.

An interesting puzzler that is akin to a mix of Minesweeper and Picross with a very chill ambient soundtrack and a no-rush approach to solving the increasingly complex hex cell maps. Cheap and fun time killer for those stressed days, just don't expect too much content or replay-ability on the long run. 4/5

Hexcells is the illegitimate love child of Minesweeper and Picross. Using a series of number clues, you must logically remove and mark hexagons in order to fill out the pattern hidden underneath. If you've played either of the two before mentioned games this will be entirely intuitive, with numbers within a hexagon corresponding to the number of blue tiles (ie. mines) surrounding said hexagon, and the numbers on top of a column signally the number of blue tiles within it (with a few special signals providing additional info).

What Hexcells adds over vanilla Minesweeper is the more puzzle oriented design of its levels, each being individually designed to test your skills of deduction with cleverly disguised patterns that are often far more obvious than they first appear. Solving them is abundantly satisfying, and makes it rather hard to go back to the randomly generated boards of its spiritual predecessor.

But this is also the cause of my biggest complaint, that being the times when logic is thrown out the window and you are all but forced to guess in order to move forward. This is frustrating because you're allowed but one mistake before forfeiting your perfect rating, essentially requiring you to memorize patterns and replay levels or cheat and use screenshots of the completed puzzle to go back and perfect the stage. It's odd that a game essentially designed to entirely do away with the use of luck to solve puzzles falls into such a disappointing pitfall, but I can only assume it was an oversight by the developer as for the majority of the game it's entirely possible to intelligently complete stages, which I suppose is why these moments of guesswork stand out so strongly.

Although it just barley misses the mark, the overwhelming opinion I took away from Hexcells is that of a strong new logic puzzle that has the potential to perfect itself in future iterations, and may one day sit beside the likes of Picross and Sudoku. If you have any appreciation for the games I've compared it to, I wouldn't hesitate to check Hexcells out. It's budget priced so you've got very little to lose, and may find yourself similarly enamored by what at first seemed but a cheap knockoff.

Hexcells is a good way to kill time (about an hour's worth). The background music is very mellow so you know it can be relaxing. The game itself is quite easy but you do get a good amount of puzzles so it's not bad for the price. I recommend playing it in short intervals.

4/5

If you found it too easy or too short then try the plus version.
