“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.”

This is a brilliant puzzle game with a great ambient feel to it. The interface and music would almost lull you to sleep if your mind wasn't working to seek out the next path to completion. Definitely recommended.

This is probably the best puzzle game I have ever played. The music and sound effects are spot-on fantastic, the puzzles are lovingly and painstakingly crafted, and the difficulty progression is just perfect from one puzzle to the next.

The mechanics are similar to Minesweeper and if you find yourself clicking the wrong mouse button (like me), you can change the button configuration from the Input tab of the configuration menu when you first start the game.

I have now bought this game twice at full price (I bought again when released on Steam) and I don't regret it in the slightest. This game is worth well more than the $3 asking price.

The Gameplay is like Minesweeper - only better. It's a perfect "Just one more puzzle" game.

But ... it's very short. the main game contains 30 levels which you can beat in under 2 hours.

It would be perfect with a level editor.

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 presents a spin on the classic Minesweeper formula, but Hexcells quickly surpasses the iconic Windows game. While Minesweeper offered little in the way of guideance, Hexcells is brilliantly designed. Sharing elements of Picross, each puzzle can be logically solved with zero blind guessing. The ambient tones are a treat, and the zen atmosphere the game manufactures is well done and marries well with the elegant visual polish.

The experience is short. Most players can finish the game and complete all achievements in 2-3 hours. Those wishing for more can buy the Hexcells Plus expansion, and hopefully, we can look forward to more expansions down the road.
