Reviews

“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...”

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 recommend all of the hexcells. This one in particular introduces some of the harder mechanics the game series has introduced and if you don't like how challenging this one gets, don't get Hexcells Infinite.

But honestly this series is absolutely astounding and i recommend picking all of them up.

10/10

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.

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.)
