Anmeldelser

“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...”

Hexcells Plus is a solid zenlike puzzler that has the player use minesweeper-esque logic to determine whether adjacent hex cells are part of a pattern or not. Addictive, challenging, but also relaxing and satisfying.

This definitely ups the difficulty from the first Hexcells.

After Hexcells Plus, previous Hexcells looks like mere demo. Or easy mode. Or rather tutorial for the _real_ game. Hexcells Plus looks visually the same as previous game, including the same achievements and same amount of puzzles. But Plus version adds new mechanics, and is much, much more challenging. I enjoyed it. Too bad that all puzzles are handmade, so no more games possible after finishing existing set. Otherwise I could use this game as substitute for Minesweeper on the regular basis. Recommended!

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.

This game is insanely hard. It is obsurdly well designed, and a lot of fun. This will cause you significant headaches. Each puzzle can be solved without guessing, which shouldn't have to be specified. That should tell you just how hard this game is. Good luck.

Hexcell was a fun puzzle game, but never reached that point where it was extremely challenging.

Hexcell Plus solves this with much harder puzzles! High levels of concentration required, but the satisfaction obtained from finishing it is so good!

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.

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

General
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.

Gameplay
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).

Controls
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.

Storyline
No storyline, doesn't need one.

Sound
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!

Graphics
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.

Pros
+ 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
Cons
- still a fairly short game
- the option to switch the mouse button actions is outside the game

Hexcells Plus is Hexcells, but tougher. There's nothing more to say! If you liked the first game, get this one too :)

Really like this game. Though the idea is the same as Minesweeper (Hexagon version), there are some new features you can enjoy this game. The levels are well designed. There's NO single level which you have to guess, so all is about logic. This is a slow pace game. Lot of patience is required. The problem is there's only 36 levels, kind of a short game.

Hexcells Plus, much like its predecessor, Hexcells, is a puzzle game which features minesweeper-like playstyle on a hexagonal grid. In it, you are given information about the number of specific tiles (and some context clues of where they lie), and must use logic to determine where the tiles are.

Where the original Hexcells was rather easy, Hexcells Plus manages to hit a sublime level of perfection in managing to toe the line of being extremely difficult by the end, while never feeling impossible. I took around 8-9 hours to complete the game, and it's been a long time since I've felt the same level of satisfaction that I did when I finally beat the game.

This is an excellent, excellent puzzle game and I cannot recommend it enough. Those familiar with Minesweeper or logical principles can probably feel free to jump in here without having played Hexcells., Those less familiar may want to look into Hexcells first, but keep in mind it's effectively "easy/intro" mode - it'll probably take around 1/10th the time to complete.

Great little puzzle game especially if you like mindsweeper, casual at first but becomes really challenging as you reach the end. The puzzle design is sublime.

WARNING: If you don't like to stare at a screen for several hours, seeing a big bunch of colored, partly connected cells and you're not able to count -> don't waste your time with this game... and reading any further ;-)

Otherwise it's a really nice game and I "wasted" around 23h to beat it perfectly. The predecessor took me only 2h.
In mid-game the developer introduces a the new blue cell type which shows you the number of blue cells surrounding it. This new feature combined with the old known ones will crack your mind.

Level 6-5 took me 3.5h to solve it perfectly in my first turn... I wanted to give up several times because I didn't see any chance in coming further. In the middle I didn't make a click for at least 1h... but suddenly I found the solution for one single cell. And with this new information I was able to keep the track. And it was in front of my eyes all the times.
This are the moments you want to experience when you play this game! You can't really get stucked, but you have hundreds of possible locations where you could go on, but sometimes there is only one single cell which you can determine exactly. And if you find it, you will be very, very happy because you knew you didn't try, your logic succeeded.

It's awesome and mind blowing... but ONLY if you really like stuff like this. Then you get a good value for small money.

Significantly more difficult puzzles than the first game, and thus an improvement in my opinion. Definitely worth the sale price, not sure about full price. Would appreciate maybe a steam workshop for more puzzles, but all around a solid puzzle game. Spent about twice as much time solving these puzzles as I did in the first game.

One of the most solid puzzle games I've ever played. Minesweeper meets Picross meets hexagons, held together by raw logic and deduction. That was also true of the first Hexcells. Hexcells Plus takes it up even further in difficulty, and adds a new rule to the mix to make things even more interesting. (For that reason I recommend playing the original first. This is a standalone title, but in terms of learning curve, it's a successor to the first.)

WARNING: You should NOT buy this game until you complete the first Hexcells game, which I have also reviewed.

Hexcells Plus basically picks up where the first left off. It's basically DLC that isn't DLC, but rather its own standalone game. If you liked the first one, you'll like this too; it's pretty much the same, just much more of it.

The average puzzle difficulty has been brought up considerably; whereas I completed the first in two hours, I still have six puzzles left after more than four hours with Plus.

There's also two new mechanics: 1) black "?" hexes which give no information, serving no purpose beyond saying "Good job, you found out that I'm not blue" and 2) Numbers on blue hexes which indicate how many other blue hexes are in a two-hex radius.

Get the Hexcells Complete Pack - Hexcells, Hexcells Plus, and the fixed puzzles in Hexcells Infinite all complete a single difficulty curve that properly ramps up.

If you have zero interest in fiendishly, deliciously difficult puzzles and only want more of a zen puzzling experience, you can maybe sorta kinda skip right to the procedurally generated puzzles in Hexcells Infinite.

HexCells Plus is a standalone 'expansion' on HexCells - it introduces all the same mechanics just like the original, it just has harder puzzles. Each puzzle still has a logical progression all the way through and the sound still helps you get into a very zen groove. Great game to relax to, and enjoyable for those who like challenging logic puzzles.
