    Simply put, Super Hexagon is one of the best mobile gaming experiences I've had this year.

    A simple yet addictive game idea with good presentation can go a long way towards greatness, and Super Hexagon definitely fits this description.

    Super Hexagon is hard enough to infuriate, but its competent design makes it inviting as well. This game will invite you to have one more try (taking less than a second to restart), and it'll invite you to immerse yourself and play instinctively too: for a game like this, that's the greatest invitation of all.

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

It is a profoundly simple game, butA 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.

    Guide the tiny arrow in the centre of the screen through the ever decreasing geometric maze that approaches it. Repeat and survive. SuperGuide the tiny arrow in the centre of the screen through the ever decreasing geometric maze that approaches it. Repeat and survive. Super Hexagon redefines the "quick fix" gaming that has become synonymous with iOS games. The first thing that will strike you, aside from the Rez-like visuals and glorious Chipzel soundtrack, is that game times are short. At first you'll be elated to last five seconds, soon you'll find yourself stubbornly working your way towards thirty, then a minute, and it goes on. Your perception of time becomes warped; those first twenty seconds can feel like minutes until you find yourself trapped and defeated, immediately and instinctively opting for a restart. To dismiss Super Hexagon as too hard is to miss the point. It's one of those rare breeds where a game can really punish you whilst never being unfair; any mistake is purely down to the player. It's an unashamedly hardcore game, where the easiest setting is "hard" and works its way up to "hardest". Don't be put off, stick with it. It will click soon enough. And it's an absolute joy. Expand

    I guess i missed something according to the hyped score here on metacritic. games that are frustrating to play dont always mean a bad game . 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. Expand
