Recensies

“The puzzles themselves, and clearly this is the most important point, are sublime. They are so well designed, so utterly brilliant in construction and delivery, that I wonder at Brown’s brain. There’s even a wit to them, moments that make me smile as I play, as I realise how carefully and deliberately a puzzle has been designed...”

[I know this shows 0 hours played, but my achievements should prove that I'd previously bought and beaten this game. In fact, I played it three or four times over!]

Hexcells Plus is everything I am always looking for in a puzzle game, distilled to a deceptively simple interface. Though comparisons to Minesweeper are not unwarranted, these comparisons miss a crucial difference: in Minesweeper, the final moves often (and annoyingly) come down to chance, debasing all the carefully planned moves you'd made before should you--at the end of a long game--happen to click a mine.

In Hexcells (and Hexcells Plus), however, the game gives you JUST enough information to never, ever have to guess. But you will often spend many, many minutes searching for and debating your next move. While the game provides various clues as to where you can find Hexes and numbers, it does not (at least past the first few levels) make this obvious (as it is in a game like Picross, for example, where every column's number of squares is provided). It only provides clues for a limited number of columns, rows, sections, etc.; based on this, and based on tricks you'll pick up and teach yourself as you go along, you'll have to very carefully make your next move.

And this is the crucial difference: any mistake you make in Hexcells is your own fault--thus Hexcells corrects an unfortunate norm in the puzzle genre. So, between chess-like demands on your every move, between the security of knowing the game will not force you to guess, between the pleasing visuals and soothing ambient soundtrack, Hexcells Plus is one of, if not THE, best puzzle games I have ever played, and I play many.

5/5

This is the big brother to Hexcells. It is MUCH harder than the original and a real challenge if you like logic-based puzzles. This will probably take 3-4 times longer to 100% compared to the original. The boards are much larger and provide fewer starting points. There are also more-challenging logic rules to follow. At times I felt I had to resort to guessing, but I'm certain no guessing is required as the boards are very carefully planned out. The harder boards are quite satisfying to complete.

Like its predecessor, this is the best puzzle game I have ever played. This is more of an expansion than an actual separate game, but the price is so cheap that it doesn't matter. Both games are worth far more than the asking price, in my opinion.

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. Hexcells Plus adds a few things over its predecessor: additional types of puzzles, a couple of new types of clues, and a bit more difficult end puzzles.

I simply cannot recommend both games enough.

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. Also, keep in mind that there is never a time that you must guess.

This game makes me feel smart.

Regular Hexcells is like super happy fun puzzle time. Hexcells Plus is the diabolical demon from hell version of the game. It's a whole lot harder than the regular version. There were points where I couldn't find the next logical solution in the puzzle and had to guess. That doesn't mean there wasn't a logical move, just that I couldn't find it! The boards are much bigger and there are added game mechanics that result in more complicated play. It's way more like sudoku, with times when you have make complicated deductions based on the overlap of number clues.

If you want a nice, relaxing puzzle game, buy regular Hexcells. If you want a challenge, grab Hexcells Plus. Better yet, both. I think I slightly prefer regular Hexcells just because I like the more relaxing puzzles, but there is a certain sense of accomplishment to be found in Hexcells Plus that regular Hexcells lacks.

Decent puzzle. Like mine sweeper but add a bunch of twists and make it non-random. Each puzzle has a single solution that can be completely deduced without resorting to trial and error. With only 1 solution, I see Hexcells as more of a puzzle (like Sudoku) as opposed to a "game", but it was a fun expenditure of about 5 hours. 7/10
