    Super Hexagon is tough, and that is clearly its defining feature. If you aren't up for a game that will frustrate you, stay away. High score chasers will feel right at home, if not outright delighted with what this simple but infuriating title has to offer.

    Tough, frustrating, and a little too twitchy, Super Hexagon is nonetheless a skilfully constructed and compelling game / instrument of torture.

    Don't let its low price or simple visuals fool you, this is the most demonically addictive game of the year and it takes no prisoners.

    Neon-colored retro-entertainment that's perfect for short sessions. There's not much in terms of depth, though.

    A fantastic creation from one of the greatest indie developers around (Terry Cavanagh, creator of VVVVVV).

It is a profoundly simple game, but incredibly challenging to your reaction, memory, and spatial orientation skills. Your first game will probably last just a few seconds, but very quickly you will begin seeing yourself improve. Gaining mastery at such a difficult skill is intrinsically rewarding and powerfully addictive. Due to tight controls and ease of making numerous attempts the high difficulty level is never frustrating. This puts it in good company such as Super Meat Boy, The Impossible Game, and other challenging games.

    The game's aesthetic is pure, geometric, and colorful, with stunning results. Given that individual games can last under a minute, it's also the perfect game for the mobile medium. It's an instant classic that you should purchase immediately.

AI guess i missed something according to the hyped score here on metacritic. games that are frustrating to play dont always mean a bad game . A lot of the time you get enjoyment of achieving something after being bogged down. In this case the gameplay is very limited in turning the hexagon around and after having my game end in 10 seconds a couple of times had enough. Full Review »
