“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...”

The much more challenging sequel to its predecessor, "Hexcells," Hexcells Plus provided me with the continued gradual escalation of difficulty and complexity in each puzzle. I found that, like the first this game is very enjoyable, and given it's inexpensive nature, would highly reccomend it if you enjoyed the first and are looking for something harder.

+Challenging
+Cheap
+Relaxing
-No replayability

8.0/10.0

As a series thus far I'd give it an overall
8.5/10.0

The fact that the sequel actually kicked up the difficulty and complexity is impressive, as many puzzle games simply get longer at a certain point with the difficulty being capped off after a while. This series is a rabit hole of mental gymnastics that you should definitely jump into.

It's pretty much minesweeper but instead with squares it's with hexagons along with other hurdles and mechanics into the mix.

Good puzzle game. I would get Infinite too as this version is Medium and Infinite is Hard and higher. The base version is good too but Easy I would get them in a bundle instead of individually. Worth it.

Nice game, like it a lot. Casual.

(this is a copy of my review for the first itiration of the game)

This is not a logic puzzle, there is *definite* 50/50 moments (like minesweeper) that you just have to guess. This can get frustrating if you've gotta catch 'em all, but I advise adjusting your mindset, because this can be a peaceful release of a few minutes here and there.

Play it like a cross between a nonogram and minesweeper. You can unlock all of the later levels if you just screen shot your current one (before finishing) and go again, so don't stress about that error, and retry in a second to ensure you have enough blues to unlock the later levels. You don't have to high score it, just unlock the later levels, so do enough to do that and you're good :-).

A fun and challenging logical puzzle game similar to MineSweeper.
Using the numbers to work out which tiles to mark.

The big difference between Hexcells and Minesweeper is that you never need to guess at any point, there's always a way to work out where to click.
Also, numbers can be shown on the outside of the grid and show a different symbol with the number to tell you how the tiles you need to mark are laid out.

The only issue I have with this is that it's really short and there's no replay value in it.
If you wish to save a bit of money then I suggest only buying HexCells Infinite which contains the same as this but also has a random level generator for.. infinite.. replayability.

Slightly harder than the original game, but still quite easy to finish without guessing. Becomes more oblique with having to remember what everything means, but at least numbers in blue hexes are more intuitive than different bracketed numbers. Still fun, similar soundtrack to the original (tolerable but ignorable) and generally addicitive, though with puzzles that require even more of a hunt to find the number you haven't completed yet (because there are more numbers to sort through).

If you liked the first, get it, if you didn't don't bother. Start with the first game regardless as it will show you what all three games are about. They go on sale often enough, and the discount for getting all three isn't significant enough to not try one before getting the rest.

Hexcells Plus is second part in the series which brings 36 new puzzles to the table. It is Minesweeper-like game where your goal is to decipher the pattern and mark the blue cells by gradually eliminating empty ones. They contain numbers which show how many blue cells are adjacent. Additional rules are introduced soon such as number of cells in columns, and clusters of cells that must be separated from each other or adjacent to one another. One new mechanic is introduced compared to the first game in series - some blue cells have numbers which indicate how many of them are located in a 2 hex radius which contributes to higher game difficulty. Levels are much bigger and more complex than the first game, and it took me 4x as much time to finish it, about 6 hours.

If you want a challenge, skip Hexcells and go straight to Hexcells Plus. Great, creative puzzle game that's way more than just Minesweeper with hexagons. Sometimes you might get stuck, but you never have to guess; look a little closer, and the clues lead to the next step. Brilliant puzzle game with handcrafted puzzles, at a low price. 10/10.

I'd give this game a 4/10. The original hexcells was fantastic, one of my favorite puzzle games. This is the same, but... Hexcells is based on the idea of having a clever puzzle game with simple rules. The introduction of the blue tiles that tell you how many other blue tiles are within two hexes, however... It's not a good mechanic. It's not impossible, but it's just not intuitive, especially with the shapes hexes create. You're suddenly dealing with these weird flower shapes where much of the flower is confused by strange colors or parts missing. It's not fun.

It's confusing, but not in the way a puzzle should be. It feels like bad design and it comes in very early on. I don't find drawing patterns on the screen to find what I'm supposed to be looking for fun. I'd rather be solving the puzzle than trying to figure out *where* the puzzle is. A simple outline to show where the area is, like was done for the slanted lines in previous games, would have gone a long way.

It's not the worst mechanic ever, and I'm sure some people enjoy it, but I personally cannot recommend this game because of it.

Game is great. It doesn't have many levels (only 36) but it's something like 5-6 hours of entertainment (I didn't finish it yet).

Levels are great- it's really amaing that puzzles with this level of complexity doesn't required any guessing (only one level for first 30 that I solved required guess (but maybe I didn't saw something)).

If you think that you'll like this game (from screenshots and description) - you will :)

A fun puzzle game. Although it feels repetitive after playing the first Hexcells, I can't seem to quit it. Very addictive if you enjoy puzzle games!

If you're able to, I'd go for the bundle for Hexcells, since you'll want to play them all!

Hexcells Plus is the same exact game as original Hexcells, but it offers 36 different (more challenging) puzzles.

Hexcells is a minimalistic logic puzzle very similar to classic Minesweeper. You need to find blue cells and numbers show you how many of them are nearby.
  • For one, there is no instadeath. If you make a mistake, you just keep going.
  • Most importantly with a little bit (and sometimes with a lot) of thinking you can figure out where each blue cell is located. Unlike minesweeper where sooner or later you come to a point when you have to close your eyes and guess randomly.
Music is very nice and the game itself is relaxing.

I recommend buying Hexcells Complete Pack (Hexcells, Hexcells Infinite, Hexcells Plus) because you will definitely want more.

Hexcells is a puzzle game in which you can use hard logic and intuition to solve the puzzles. If all the numbers put you off, t is less mathematical it appears, focusing more on deciphering patterns. The relaxing sounds are a nice contrast to how hard your brain will work. I thoroughly enjoyed all three and highly recommend them.

This one has a steeper learning curve than the first. I would suggest playing the first one before this, just to get to grips with it

Potentially the best Hexcells game (when speaking of the scripted boards only) it's not too hard, but not hand-feedingly easy like the first. I really enjoy it, and think you will to!

Like the original Hexcells, but it's a lot harder. I recommend playing the original one first. This game also introduces a new element to the game where a number on a blue hex corresponds to how many other blue hexes are around the central hex within a 2-hex radius.

Game Series

Hexcells Plus is the second game of its' series. Previous game: Hexcells.

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 Plus basically has same formula as its' predecessor Hexcells. So the objective remains the same. Which is to figure out which cells to make blue and which cells to make black.

There are total of three slots with six worlds that has thirty-six 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.

I finished the original Hexcells in less than two hours, figured I could have played some more, and bought this one too. And you get what you order: clever puzzles in the spirit of good old Minesweeper, sans the random guessing element.

The difficulty level in Hexcells Plus goes up way quicker than in Hexcells, there are few really easy levels. The more difficult levels can even take up to 30 minutes or so, which started to feel like too much, especially given that you cannot save the game in the middle of a level! Also, it does feel irritating if you make a mistake towards the end of a level after having spent 20 minutes on it, especially if you're after the Perfectionist achievement without cheating.

Anyway, the puzzles are hand-made and some actually almost made me laugh out loud when they revealed some perfectly composed, might I say beautiful, hint as to how the blue hexes are set. If you liked the original one, then this offers more of the same, but much more challenge too. (My play time ended up to 11.5 hours, but a couple of times I just left the game running while I was away from keyboard, so I'd say my actual play time is about 10 hours.)

The second game in the trilogy is much harder. The challenge went up significantly. You can still complete all levels using only logic and clues without any random luck. The levels are bigger though and unfortunately there are times when you have to look very carefully for the next clue. If you couldn't get enough from the first game, you might like this.

Logic puzzle game, similar to minesweeper but without the need to guess any moves and sequel to the original Hexcells.

Hexcells Plus increases the difficulty over the original game while having only 6 more levels(36 in total) over the original the amount it took me to finish them all was an extra 10 hours.

Again like the original every puzzle is fully solvable buy logic alone and like the original it is forgiving with no punishment for guessing or making mistakes.

Also again one negative is that puzzles can’t be saved mid game, so you lose progress when you exit, which given the increase in difficulty in puzzles could be a problem.

Hexcells Plus is easy to recommend to those wanting harder puzzles over the original; it increases the difficulty and the playtime with it for the same price.

I had no technical issues with Hexcells Plus.

More challenging (and fun) than the original version. The biggest draw is simply that theres another big pile of puzzles to solve. Some of which use some new mechanics, and some of which are going to be serious stumpers. I'd say 'on average' these take around 2x as long to solve as the first batch, which honestly is a good thing.
