Hexcells Infinite is the third game in the series of ambient logic puzzle games.

It includes a new set of 36 puzzles as well as a random puzzle generator and now supports mid-level saving and cross platform cloud saves.

It's a Minesweeper game, using hexagon instead of square. So I guess bees are better than us at this game. :p

Also, this is the definitive edition of Hexcells' series. You can grab only just this Hexcells Infinite and play forever. (It would be better if they are all released as DLCs on top of the main game.)

Absolutely fantastic game. In terms of logical effort, this game, in my opinion, is harder than the Portal games. For me, this game made me use logical thinking in ways I've never used before hence the game actually made me feel genuinely smarter. The puzzle designs from the main puzzles are beautifully and very cleverly designed.

I would say that in terms of the cognitive difficulty, this game is more difficult than Hexcells Plus.

The interface is minimalistic and along with the calming and soothing music, encourages you to think more clearly and in a way, calmly.


For those who want a challenge and who want to feel more confident in their intelligence then this game is simply a must buy.

If you are willing to buy the game, try not to make any mistakes since it'll effect the amount of satisfaction you get sometimes from solving it. And yes it is true, the ENTIRE GAME can be completed using logic only, no guess work is required at all.

A delightful and zen little puzzle game for lovers of logic. Worth every penny. The time shown is the time it took me to get every achievement. A lot like minesweeper with hexagonal tiles but it adds in elements from other logic games for a whole new level of depth. A must buy when on sale.

When I reviewed the original Hexcells, I was rather hesitant with praise. It's a great idea, but there were a number of things I had issues with in the first game. Hexcells Infinite fixed pretty much all my issues, and is a fantastic game.

This game is a terrific logic puzzle, along the lines of Macross/Nanograms/Griddlers/Pic-a-Pix - whatever you call them. It's more complicated than any of those, however, bringing in some ideas that seem almost Minesweeper-esque, without the guesswork of Minesweeper.

The first two games in this series feel almost like tough tutorials for this third game. This one has much more complex logic puzzles, but not a single one needs any guessing or significant backtracking to solve.

The 36 main puzzles take a lot longer than the first two games - one of my biggest complaints about the first Hexcells is that it seemed rather short. Hexcells Infinite not only takes longer to solve due to the tough puzzles, but it also has a random puzzle generator, with almost one billion puzzles in it. They're all easier than the hardest of the Infinite puzzles, but there are some that require a bit of work, and it's great to know you'll never run out of puzzles.

My other large issue with the previous two Hexcells was the lack of any save function, which Infinite added (thank goodness).

Overall, Hexcells Infinite is a fantastic game for anyone who likes logic puzzles. I can't recommend it enough, especially at the cheap price. Buy it in a package with the other two Hexcells if you can afford it, because the other two ramp up the difficulty much more gently than Infinite does. But if you can only afford one of them, definitely get this one.

Since I've seen a lot of reviewers do personal scales, and it's helped me a lot to decide what to buy, I put my own here. I give Hexcells Infinite a 5 out of 5. Additionally, I usually only give a thumbs up if I got at least two hours of enjoyment out of it for every dollar I spent, and this game did that.

5: Amazing game, easily worth the full price.
4: Good game, solid addition to the genre, might want to wait for a discount.
3: Pretty entertaining game, but some issues. Buy at a discount unless you love the genre.
2: More cons than pros, a lot of issues. Only buy with a strong discount, and only if the game truly sounds like something you'd enjoy.
1: Don't get this game unless it's free. Even then, consider spending your time playing something decent.

The last game in the Hexcells series. And a great final hurrah. This series is wonderful for the puzzle lover, with a mix of Picross and Minesweeper, but with even more ways of getting clues. This one even has a puzzle generating mode for infinite future gameplay.

I bought this game on sale thinking it would be a fun puzzle game for 20 minutes here and there...in my first sitting I played for nearly 3 hours straight.

Hexcells Infinite is an addicitive, ambient puzzle game that is slightly reminiscent of Minesweeper. However, this game possesses an elegant charm that makes it brilliant and unique. Every time I complete one puzzle I am compelled to try 'just one more'.

Help. I'm 8161 puzzles in and i can't stop. This is like minesweeper, but better. No randomness, way better mechanics, unlimited replayability. It's all about logic and stuff. Just the right level of challenge for me. I'm way too hooked. Also each puzzles takes me 1-4 mins. Just woke up? Time to sneak in one puzzle. Queueing up for LoL and nothing to do? Sneak in another few puzzles.

Some one save me.

Day 1: Just finished the game. Man, that was challenging. Hey, what's this? An infinite mode? Let me try it out...

Day 2: These randomly generated puzzles are great, I'm having a blast.

Day 5: Still playing this infinite mode. Maybe I should stop.

Day 24: Had a nightmare where I couldn't figure out the solution to a Hexcells puzzle and had to guess. I woke up in a cold sweat.

Day 57: Didn't...didn't I have a job and a life at some point? I think I did. Oh well, onto puzzle 1172.

Day 133: I can solve forever...

Day 376: My debate skills have dramatically improved. Every conversation now appears to me as a hex puzzle, with all the branching paths, dead ends and subtle nuances of social interaction reduced to pure rules and numbers. It's beautiful.

Day 804: I have finished my prototype for four-dimensional Hexcells. Within this game will lie the answer to everything.

Day 2755: My God, it's full of cells...

Seriously though, buy this game

The Hexcells series are my favorite puzzle games. It's true that minesweeper is an easy comparison, but also unfair, as it would be to compare a modern car to a Model T. A bit of math, much more logic, an infinite puzzle generator, and you've got yourself a puzzle game that will last forever! Buy it now!

DISCLAIMER: Forever is a really, really long time, and you won't be around to see it. Rest assured though, that whoever is around will be able to enjoy Hexcells forever! Just not you. Sorry.

Hexcells Infinite offers more of the same logic puzzle awesomeness that you find in the rest of the Hexcells series. If you were just going to get one of the trilogy, this would be the one I'd recoomend. The random and daily seed puzzles, plus the level editor and ability to download and share custom puzzles gives this third title in the series a replayability that the first two Hexcells games can't touch.

I was a little hesitant in picking this up at first, since I found the difficulty jump between Hexcells and Hexcells Plus a bit daunting and couldn't imagine a similar jump in complexity between Plus and Infinite, but fortunately that wasn't the case. I found the difficulty level overall in Hexcells Infinite to be somewhere in between that of the first two titles. The game is a challenge, but not a frustration.

I do still recommend the entire series, as it's one of the best puzzle games I've found on Steam (or elsewhere), but if your budget is limited, Hexcells Infinite offers the most for your money.

This thing is intense and a marked improvement over its predecesor. The packaged puzzles are mind-bendingly difficult. I've played for six hours and I'm only 50% of the way through the game.

However, there's also an "infinate" mode -- where you can use a random number generator (or today's date) to create a puzzle that is less imposing but still a lot of fun. This adds the replayability that was missing from the first title.

All told: I found it very enjoyable and recommended for anyone who likes Minesweeper, crosswords, and other such puzzles.

Simply the best number matching puzzle game of them all.

The generated puzzles are inevitably not a patch on the hand-crafted ones, but even there you can find the occasional gem. The main puzzles are brilliant, with a gradual (though much steeper than previous versions) difficulty progression.

All three Hexcells games are excellent. New players should definitely play them in order (Hexcells, Plus, Infinite) to get the most enjoyment out of them though.

The only game series I must 100% and my favorite puzzle series. Smart, clean, and it's got jokes. If you believe that hex grids and numbers can be jokes. (Jokes are usually in the form of ? hexes and are always on you.)

The auto-generated puzzles are less tidy but great for quick <10 min breaks between whatever else your doing. A+

Ever played Minesweeper but ended up annoyed at the random element, being able to lose at any point because the 'puzzle' presented can't be solved using logic alone?

Fear not, the Hexcells series is here to save you.
As each game in the series will occupy you roughly three times as much as the one before it, this with its fabulous random-generated jolly puzzling (including forum threads where people list RNG seeds they found particularly difficult, enjoyable, easy, quick, whatever you want...) is by far the most value your money can get. Worth it even at the full $5 price; unbeatable value when on sale.

It's also an extremely good game to 'local co-op' with any family members you have at hand.
