“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...”

Ce jeu est la suite, en beaucoup plus complexe, du premier Hexcells.
Seul défaut majeur: beaucoup de niveaux finissent par requérir une action au hasard, ce qui est assez frustrant lorsque le résultat est faux et qu'on a déjà fait les 3/4 d'un niveau comprenant 150 cases ^^

Qu'est-ce que le jeu Hexcells ? Voici mon évaluation du premier:

Comme tout le monde, vous devez normalement, probablement, évidemment, obligatoirement connaitre (à défaut d'avoir joué) le jeu "Démineur" hein ?
Le principe d'Hexcells est le même, mais en plus complexe.

En effet, au lieu de cases, ce sont des hexagones que vous aurez à identifier et qui seront accompagnés de chiffres supplémentaires désignant le nombre de bombes d'une colonne/ligne entière, groupe/suite de bombes autour d'un hexagone ou au contraire une dispersion particulière dans un secteur donné.
Le gameplay s'en voit enrichi et permet des grilles à la fois originales et beaucoup plus complexes que le Démineur de base.

Unique chose manquante et qui aurait été top: un générateur de grilles; c'est bien dommage mais pour son prix, ça n'est pas offensant.
Pour un prix ridicule, achetez le pack complet des trois Hexcells lorsqu'il est soldé.

Ayant brulé une quantité incroyable de mes neuronnes sur le Démineur, aussi bien sur celui de Windows 95 que sur celui de mon Ipad, je ne peux que vous le conseiller.
Si vous aimez le Démineur, vous allez grandement apprécier.
Si vous aimez les jeux de type casse-tête/réflexion, vous devriez également l'aimer.
Cependant, impatients s'abstenir; ce Démineur ne vous fait pas recommencer intégralement en cas d'erreur, mais une victoire n'en est pas une sans un niveau parfait !

The first Hexcells game is basically the tutorial to Hexcells Plus. If you thought the first game was too easy (and let's face it, that surely includes everyone) then this is the real game right here. The first Hexcells only gets interesting in the last few levels; well, Hexcells Plus starts off from that point, so it's logically a much better game. The concept is simple: find which cells are occupied and which are empty using surrounding clues that tell you how many occupied cells are in a row, how many occupied cells are adjacent to each occupied cell, and how many occupied cells are found within a certain radius of an occupied cell. It looks like Minesweeper at first glance, but it's far more interesting than that. Some of the later levels here get pretty tough, and there are times when you find it difficult to believe that it's possible without guessing, but then suddenly you'll spot a line of reasoning that you've missed and a few more pieces of the puzzle fall into place. It's highly addictive, and not to be played at 2am when you're half-asleep. Great puzzle game, recommended, but if you're new to the series then start with the first one.

At the Time of Writing
Game: Hexcells Plus
Price: $3.29*
Genre: Puzzle
Time Played: 9 hours
Personal Enjoyment Rating: ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ ☻

I did give the first Hexcells a not recommended because it was very easy and a bit pricy. At the time of writing that review, I was unprepared to spend another few dollars on Hexcells Plus. One day Hexcells Plus was on sale, and I figured I should give it a shot, and I'm glad I did.

This game is certainly an improvement on the first one and I enjoyed it a lot. The puzzles are a bit harder and some present an actual challenge, particularly if you are disciplined and refuse to let yourself make a blind guess.

The concept of this game is intriguing, adding a few levels of complication and being much more accurate in the solution than Minesweeper is. No guesses are required, everything can be figured out with logic and enough persistence. Harness your inner vulcan!

Some of those complications I mentioned include: cells are hexagons, there are more numbers (rather than just being on the cells they are also found on columns and rows), there are different sorts of numbers (some mean that a string of "mines" are all adjacent, others that "mine" strings are interrupted by a gap).

Very simple - right click and left click. Still no option in game to change which button does what, but you can change it at game launch. However, by now I've become mostly accustomed to them and didn't make too many stupid mistakes by hitting the wrong button.

No storyline, doesn't need one.

Relaxing gentle zen echoie noises. Also, when you click a cell you get nice tinkling chime-like noises. I don't know why that makes it more satisfying to click on cells, but it does!

Very crisp, clean, and clear. The numbers are reasonably large. Some puzzles form an interesting overall image or pattern, and overall, the puzzles come across as well designed.

+ crisp clean graphics whose job is to be functional
+ simple controls to grasp
+ more interesting concept than random old Minesweeper
+ improvements over the first game
- still a fairly short game
- the option to switch the mouse button actions is outside the game

Hmmm....what to say? This game was pretty fun. The puzzles are pretty neat, with math and logic being the primary factors. For me, it was a fairly relaxing way to spend an evening. However, there are some random aspects to the puzzles that I feel make some of them pretty cheap. Because of this, you are really needing to memorize the patterns since the occasional question mark instead of a numeric hint throws math and logic out the window.

So...what I did was finish each puzzle and unlock enough points to progress to the next set on y own, until I was able to finish the game (which took me around an hour and a half or so, then went back today with a guide and got each one perfect for the final achievement.

I would have given this game about an 8.5 out of 10, but the cheap moments sort of work to nullify actual logic and math thus defeating the actual purpose of the game, and so I knock this down to a 6 out of 10. Still a good game, but the random moments force you to rely solely on memorizing the puzzles that have the question marks (this will make more sense when you play it by the way) rather than the intended math and logic. Had they left that randomness out though, this would have been a near perfect puzzle game. Still, I recommend it. You will enjoy it regardless of that huge flaw.

Traditional Rating - 94/100
Recommendation - Like Hexcells, but Plus!

Remember the free old Windows game Minesweeper? Remember how fun it was finding those hidden mines, and how you could feel your brain scream "NOOOOOOOOOOO" whenever a mine would pop its stupid head up and kill you? Remember how immensely frustrating it was when it was entirely impossible to solve levels without guessing?

WELL, NO MORE! Hexcells to the rescue.

Hexcells is very similar to Minesweeper in that you have to use various clues and reasoning to find the hidden blue cells on each level, but unlike Minesweeper, Hexcells' soultions can ALWAYS be reasoned, and if you're doing it right you will never have to guess.

The levels start out easy, with simple rules and puzzles, but new tricks are added just regularly enough to fully grasp, and before you know it, you'll find yourself scanning through 15 different criteria to find the 1-in-100 blue cell to start a level off. It's very satisfying.

Speaking of satisfying, the puzzles here never seem overwhelming or too tricky. Take my opinion with a grain of salt (since I have always loved games like this), but the level of difficulty in these puzzles was just perfect, and while some levels did force me to stare at them for a while, the solution was always there somewhere just waiting for me to grab it.

The Hexcells series is really 3 games: Hexcells, Hexcells Plus, and Hexcells Infinite. They each have different puzzles, and they are each worth getting, but Hexcells Infinite is the one to get if you're on a budget. It has the most advanced puzzles, and it includes a random level generator, so you can literally play to your heart's content. All 3 of them will slowly progress you through the mechanics of the game, though, so don't feel like you will be overwhelmed if you jump right into Infinite.

It's worth mentioning that the random levels in Infinite are mere pale shadows compared to the premade levels (they are often quite easy), but for fans that cannot get enough and don't want to go back to the guess-fest Minesweeper, they can be a lot of fun.

I highly recommend this game. If you're a fan of logic-based puzzle games, you can't go wrong with any of these 3 games. The prices are cheap, and the series is rather unique. If the devs could have just tightened up the infinite level generator ever-so-slightly, this game might be the only game I've rated to pass Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

Scratch that Minesweeper itch, my friend!

Hexcells Plus is much harder than Hexcells, and requires a lot more brain power. It introduces more requirements for solving a puzzle, and you'll spend more time in this version than the previous.

Well worth the money and time.

Like other Hexcell games this one is definitely tougher and requires more thinking skill. Other a very enjoyable game where all achievements are attainable. And for a price of $2.99 its well worth the investment. I recommend this game if you are a fan of the previous two Hexcells games.

This game is like minesweeper except that you can solve every level with sheer logic, no guessing required. This is really interesting though because if you don't understand what next to do, you can leave the tiny game minimized in the background and return to it after a small break with a new mindset and generally that helps you solve the problem! It's a good little thing. The puzzles are truly hard though.

This game is like a combination between Minesweeper and Picross/Nonogram. 36 puzzles in total, and a great soundtrack. I found the difficulty to be just right, though once you beat all 36 puzzles, you've finished. Still it's totally worth it, and definately worth $3.

I recommend buying the Hexcels Complete Pack, which costs $8.99 at full price. The pack includes Hexcells, Hexcells Plus, and Hexcells Infinite. They each 36 unique puzzles, which adds up to a total of 108 puzzles. However, Hexcells Infinite includes a puzzle generator, where you put in a string of 8 numbers, or have the game randomly pick, and will generate a puzzle based on those numbers, so you can challenge you friends. Also, instead of pressing the "generate random number" button, you can press a button to use the days date, so you can have a 'daily' puzzle too.

I really enjoyed the first Hexcells, but my main complaint is that it was far too short. While Plus technically has the same exact number of puzzles, it will last you a whole lot longer--there are new mechanics that make the game far, far more challenging than the first. The same basic gameplay is still here: it's kind of a mashup of Minesweeper and Picross, and it's incredibly satisfying to logically work out all the solutions.

If you played the first game, there's two new types of tiles. Black hexes can have a question mark on them; they serve to severely limit the paths one can take to fully solve the board. These end up being an effective way to resolve the primary issue with the game's structure, in that it is otherwise far, far too easy to finish puzzles. The second new mechanic is blue tiles with numbers--the number represents how many blue hexes are present within a two-tile radius. They're great additions; I found them to be a pretty clever way to expand the basic structure of the game.

It's absolutely wonderful to have a sequel that provides more of what I enjoyed while also resolving every issue I had with the initial entry in the series. The first Hexcells honestly just feels like a prototype after playing Plus; I'd still recommend it, but there's no reason whatsoever to play it if you've skipped to Plus. Either way, though, Hexcells Plus is a must buy for anyone who enjoys puzzle games.

I like the previous one more

It's the same as the previous title. In Hexcells Plus, they introduce new levels and mechanics.

The next paragraph I will talk about the game itself, so if you still haven't tried the Hexcells games before, let just say it is a relaxing puzzle game worth trying.

As for the reason for liking the previous one more, it has to do with the new mechanic. The one where there are numbers inside the cells. Although this game has a puzzle tag, the main tag of this game for me would be 'relaxing' tag. You can't really call Hexcells games 'difficult'. It does require some thinking, but mostly it is just finding where to go next from the clues given. With the new mechanic, this is harder to do so. It pains my eyes to focus on those whiten cells, especially when they are on top of each other.

Ok, after almost being done with the game (still got World 6 to do!), I can honestly say that this is probaby the most difficult, rewarding and entertaining puzzle game I've ever put my time into.

I bought the first Hexcells a while back and fell in love with it, but I felt it was a bit easy. Then I picked this one up. Hexcells Plus is RIDICULOUSLY harder than the original, and I love it. I almost never use walkthroughs for these types of games, but one puzzle had me stumped for so long that I had to resort to it once.

The puzzles themself are brilliantly designed, and it's clear that the developer put a large amount of time into making sure they were of the highest quality. The ambient music in the background is wonderful and calming; it also adds to the wonderful experience this game provides. The graphics are simple but gorgeous and charming.

Overall, this is by far one of, if not the best puzzle game I've ever played and there is no reason to not pick it up. However, this game goes by the assumption that you have played the original Hexcells first, so before you pick up Hexcells Plus, start out with the first one.

Much like the original Hexcells, Hexcells Plus is an updated version of the classic strategy game Minesweeper with a bit of added style: you play with hexagons instead of squares. The board starts with an oddly shaped field made of orange hexagons. Mines are marked by left-clicking a hexagon, turning it blue. Hexagons are revealed by right-clicking, showing the number underneath if you click correctly and shaking the piece and adding a tally mark to your mistake count if you're too hasty in your decisions.

Unlike the original Minesweeper, Hexcells is a much more complex game involving a board marked with various different types of clues that give the player hints about how many mines are in each column or in the surrounding area of the board. Hexcells Plus expands upon the original Hexcells by giving players an additional thirty-six puzzles to complete with a couple of added gameplay elements. These elements include the dreaded ?, a marking that denotes a hexagon that has an unrevealed amount of mines around it, as well as numbered mines that indicate how many mines are in a two-piece radius surrounding the hexagon.

Unfortunately, the addition of ? hexagons adds a somewhat frustrating element to an otherwise well-balanced game. I often found myself encountering large walls of ?'s that split the board in half, preventing me from continuing on without making a few risky clicks based off some logical guesswork. Altogether, I found Hexcells Plus to be fun, but slightly less enjoyable and more frustration-inducing than the original Hexcells (although that, perhaps, might have been caused in part by the ridiculously long span of time I had been playing Hexcells for by the time I reached some of Hexcells Plus's more challenging levels).

Nonetheless, Hexcells Plus is an engrossing way to spend an afternoon. Hexcells Plus can be seen as an expansion to the original Hexcells, adding thirty-six new levels for players to complete, or it can be played as a standalone experience, with the basics of the original Hexcells being explained in the earliest levels of Hexcells Plus. After completing the set of levels contained in Hexcells Plus, be sure to check out the original Hexcells or the inexhaustible Hexcells Infinite, which includes a rather effective level generator and the ability to play user-generated content.

For fans of Picross, Sudoku and similar brain-racking puzzle games. One of the few offerings on Steam, but absolutely worth your time. Perfectionists beware, you WILL restart the same puzzle multiple times. Cheaters need not apply.

Great puzzle game. More advanced and challenging than the first with a new element added.

It plays much like a cross between minesweeper and picross and any fan of either of those will love this.

If I had one complaint, I wish there was a way to mark hexes with a ?, similar to minesweeper, to help visualize possibilities. Some of the puzzles get quite complex and it would help a ton.

Highly recommended. Again, praise to Matthew Brown for coming up with this.

Another excellent installment in the Hexcell series, of entirely logic-based puzzling. Considerably harder than the first game, but entirely possible without any guessing. Each puzzle needs to be done in a single sitting, which can be a pain.

More awesome Hexcells puzzles! Harder then the original Hexcells, lots of fun, and an extra information piece with the blue cells sometimes having a number counting other blue cells within the 18 cells around it in a circle.

Again, Hexcells is a very clever puzzle game. Simple idea, but because you need to use 2 or 3 levels of counter-logic to complete certain sections of some puzzles, with the extra information piece, and harder puzzles, this was a great sequel to the original. I got about 3 times as much time out of Plus going for the perfectionist achievement as I did with the original.

This is the second game in the Hexcells trilogy, and I HIGHLY recommend you play the first game (Hexcells) before attempting to play this one.

While the first game provided wonderful puzzles and brain-stretching "Minesweeper crossed with Sudoku" logic, the second one cranks up the difficulty. Don't be too alarmed, because the game also provides a new puzzle mechanic that adds a whole new twist to solving the puzzles. When you solve these new puzzles, the sense of satisfaction is also cranked up another notch.

The number of puzzles and the increasing difficulty of these puzzles definitely makes Hexcells Plus a 15-to-20 hour endeavour to finish, assuming that you feel the need to get the "Perfectionist" achievement for solving the puzzles without an error.

I highly recommend this game.
