Left/Right Arrow Keys: steer the hexagon 

This game is a small, fun, minimalistic game which shows the power of 'just one more try'. I got this on Steam on Friday for the Steam Summer Sale and suddenly I was hooked with me playing this more than games like Don't Starve or Scribblenaughts Unlimited. This is because of just how addictive this game is and combine that with highscores on Steam and people posting up some ridiculous times (500 seconds for hyper hexagonest) this game will keep you entertained for hours.

There are six modes: Hexagon, Hexagoner, Hexagonest, Hyper Hexagon, Hyper Hexagoner and Hyper Hexagonest with the hyper levels being unlocked after you beat the first levels. Be warned though as these levels are difficult and will test your sense of speed, timing and just plain luck.

There are two problems with this game and they are that they tend to A. send you running, shouting from the room after you lose again and B. give you a headache as one of the games difficulties is that the game spins round, changes colour and flashes at the same time. Now this doesn't happen often but if you play this game for long periods of time just be warned.

There are six achievements on Steam for this game for completing each level (I haven't even gotten one yet!)

Conclusion: overall this game shows you how to make an addictive game which is also tense and exciting.

Rating: 72%
