    Even with new things once in a while thrown at you; there were the same objectives in each room feel to it repeated over and over again. Thankfully the different enemy, and the area map looks provide a bit of change, but not by much. For a pick up and play and walk away distraction Hexodius fits the bill and is a solid arcade game.

    A simple and enjoyable shooter that fail in be memorable. Try the demo before buy.

    The story is boring, the action not fast-paced enough. And in the end even the good ideas like the boss fights, the upgrades and the nonlinear dimension structure are all in vain.

    The addition of the utterly pointless narrative and the run-of-the-mill gameplay just make this game unnecessary. Sure it kills some time and is, on occasion, enjoyable, but if it had dropped the dead weight it could have achieved much more.

    Hexodius’ dungeon sections aren’t involved enough to offer interesting choices or exploration, but last just long enough to qualify as clunky menu screens.

    Hexodius is the kind of game that you’re likely to forget a week after finishing it. That is, if you're not bored to tears by the time you do finish it. Trust me when I say that there are many more experiences that are better worth your time and money, because this is the kind of game that will make you ask yourself “Why did I buy this again?”

    If you have a hankering for some twin stick fun on the PC go play Geometry Wars or Waves. They're far much better than this game.

    It's a really enjoyable game. Although the story is very basic and threadbare, the game-play is fun and enjoyable. It is good value, and a great deal of fun if played in moderation. Full Review »
