Super Hexagon is a work of art skillfully combined with monstrous difficulty. The game is both hypnotic and addictive, and unless fast-twitch gameplay entirely alienates you, you're going to get lost in this sea of shapes.
Super Hexagon punishes more than it rewards, but the adrenaline rush you get from playing far exceeds any mental anguish. Well, at least until you check out the best times on the Game Center leaderboards. Sobering, to say the least.
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.
Got this game on sale for 59 cents. Such an addictive little game to kill a couple spare minutes. It's pretty damn hard, but when you finally beat a level it's IMMENSELY satisfying. This may be the fabled Polybius.
Guide 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.
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 . 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.
