“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...”

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!

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.

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.

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.

My favorite puzzle game series. After a quick refresher, Plus picks up where the first game left off, skill-wise. Truly excellent.

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

Harder than the first one, you'll have to think carefully before playing if you want the "perfect" achievement. But if you don't care, it's still an easy game.

Nothing prepared me for what this game has done to me. I was looking for a puzzle game and came across Hexcell as one of Steam’s recommendations. “For two bucks and some change, I’ll give it a shot,” I thought. The game lulled me into relaxation by introducing concepts in easy to understand tutorials and basic puzzles. Then it added another layer of complexity, then another, and another. After finally completing one of the later puzzles without making any errors, I realized that I was not just playing a game. I was being trained on how to thing rationally and methodically using geometric and mathematical principles in ways that were light years beyond anything I had ever encountered before.

At times, the game has taunted me, frustrated me, and even seemed to take a delight in watching me click on the wrong hex after getting three quarters through a map. Yet, I always go back for more. My cheap, cute, and spontaneous purchase has become an addiction. There is no other word for it. I have had to uninstall this game so that I would not be tempted by its siren call.

If you are looking for an excellent puzzle game, you need not search any more.

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.

Good increase in difficulty from the first game. More levels than the first game. Difficulty curve much steeper than the first game. Puzzles start as basic as the first game's first puzzles and by the time you reach the 15th puzzle it's already much harder than the last levels of the first game. Recommended to those who have played Hexcells and thought it was a fun concept but would like more difficulty from it. Not recommended to those who thought Hexcells was difficult.

Excellent puzzle game. It is essentially more of the first game but with more mechanics and more difficult challenges.

This is a great puzzle game. It's like a cross between Minesweeper and Picross. Levels are crafted to be solvable without guessing, I think, but I ended up playing the odds a few times. The 24 hours I have on record are partly due to leaving the game running before going to bed/work because there's no way to save partial progress. I was taking about 15 minutes on some of the later puzzles. Very gratifying when it all comes together!

My main complaint with the original Hexcells was that it was fairly easy and only took me a couple of hours to complete. Hexcells Plus does not have that problem. In fact it has the opposite: it was harder than I could handle. I don't know if I was missing some logical step in figuring out the solutions, or if the game actually forces you to guess (I'm betting on the former) but there were quite a few levels that I ended up completing the first time with many mistakes. I only got all of the achievements through sheer memorization and repeating the harder levels multiple times in a row. Even so, I am looking forward to getting Hexcells Infinite and trying out the procedurally generated levels.
Reasonable price: $4.

A lot more challenging than the first one and therefore lots more fun. Some puzzles made me want to punch someone though.

Enough new content from the original, but honestly more of the same.

Neat puzzler. Easy perfect game.

It's basically the same concept as Minesweeper. But, there's relaxing music and stuff. And it doesn't explode violently in your face if you make a mistake. It just counts your mistakes against your score. I would say it's more relaxing than minesweeper, while still challenging your brain.

I just like how this is purely logical. No story, no another stuff around. Just logic. Just... mobile version would be nice.

The game doesn't build on the originals mechanics, but instead offers much more challenging content that will last longer than the previous experience. That is the only difference really, but for anyone that played the first and are hungry for more (and that would probably be most of you), this will certainly satisfy.

PROS:
more of the same, but harder.

Cons:
nothing new, but no real complaints.

8/10

(Just a note: Although the ambient music is amazing, I usually enjoy hexcells while listening to a music album in full, emotionally Im invested in the music while cereberally I am focussed on hexcells. It's a great zen-like ballance)

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.
