    Sometimes you can almost swear you reach the point in a level there are no clues on what to do next, and you'll have to play a dice, but it's just the result of a very well done bunch of intricate puzzles, despite their clean and simple presentation.

    You have some different kind of clues and it's variations to deal with, which can be hard and confusing, but the game provides you marker features to help you with it.

    It felts a bit short to me, despite more than 20 hours spent to get perfect on all levels, and i still wanting more. So that's no doubt an awesome game to me and those who also enjoy this style.

    For those who know the old Minesweeper, the mechanics of Hexcells Plus are similar, without bombs.

It starts out pretty difficult andHexcells Plus is an awesome puzzle game, it is very sleek in design, and very refreshing to play through. It starts out pretty difficult and gets even more difficult, but something you should always keep in mind is that you NEVER have to guess. I originally thought there were occasional road blocks where you had to use some guess work to farther the puzzle, but you never will, so just remember that if you think hard enough you can always find a solution to every puzzle. The puzzles are crafted very professionally and pose quite the challenge, especially if you want to get "perfect" on every level, which I did and I recommend you try as well! Hexcells is very atmospheric as well, it's easy to get absorbed into the game and it's a great game to take your mind off of things, and just work to figure out a single problem instead of worrying about life. That being said it can be pretty short depending on how good you get at it, it took me a good chunk of time to complete it originally, but the good thing is that if you wait a couple weeks and play through it again, it has great replay value.

    Very cool, sleek, puzzle game, which has a multitude of different "hints" and ways to solve multiple similar puzzles. No guess work involved, and the puzzles are crafted to perfection. New ideas and ways to solve the puzzles are introduced the farther you progress, which keeps the game entertaining and engaging. Recommended!

You are given a layout of golden hex tiles, possibly with one or more of them already highlighted or flipped. Flipped tiles have numbers on them, and also labels indicating whether or not adjacent tiles which should be highlighted are continuous or non-continuous (or no designator at all). There are also row and column labels which allow you to see how many tiles need to be highlighted in any given row or column.

    Each puzzle mixes these up in a unique way to push you to solve it.

    Thinking about this game as a more sophisticated version of minesweeper is, I think, fairly ideal, because that is more or less what it is, and the function it serves. It is something to throw away a bit of time on, not sit down and play continuously.

    But even then, you’re not looking at it taking all that long to complete; the whole game takes less than two and a half hours to solve, and that’s assuming you’re trying to get a perfect score on every stage.

    It is about as fun as Minesweeper is, and I’d basically consider it filling that role in your game library.

    That said, Hexcells Plus, as a sequel to the original game, is designed for people who have beaten it; if you haven't beaten the first game, this is much harder (and some of the puzzles, especially the very last couple, were extremely frustrating; I still don't know how you are supposed to solve the very final puzzle correctly).

    My advice? Pass. It isn’t a bad puzzle game, but it isn’t anything remarkable either. If you did get it as part of a bundle or something, it isn’t a terrible thing to install and just screw around with when you’d mess around with solitaire or minesweeper or whatever, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this.
