About

Hex: Origins is a casual puzzle game based on a complete hexagon themed colorful experience. Enjoy a refreshing, calming and original experience, which is extremely easy to pick up but hard to master as you progress in the game. Across the multitude of game modes and levels you will encounter, you must place pieces composed of anywhere from 2 to 10 and more hexagons, each using up to 6 different colors.

Everything in the game is based on two simple rules:
  • You can place a piece anywhere on the board with no restrictions as long as all the neighboring tiles are empty.
  • If one hex has a colored neighbor on the board, at least one of those neighbors needs to match its color.
Building upon these simple rules, we added special board pieces and power-ups in order to create a fun and colorful experience. As long as you keep placing pieces on the board, its requirements for placing pieces change - so be careful about the order, colors and type of shapes you can use. Always plan ahead!GameplayHex: Origins offers you 4 different game modes, 2 available from the start, and 2 unlocked with tokens you earn while playing the game:


  • Classic: a linear experience bundled up in Episodes, structured into 6 Chapters, each containing 6 Levels that you can play in 3 difficulties. Each Episode introduces new mechanics into gameplay and with each passing chapter, the difficulty is slightly raised - but so are the rewards!
  • Flow: a linear experience similar to Classic, with the added requirement of connecting various battery pieces to light bulbs in order to power them up! Carefully plan your colored ways across the board and take up the challenge! Don't forget to fill up the board, though.
  • Exploration: Give up the static board and expand in any direction! Exploration maps feature a center starting point with all the colors onto which you will start expanding in any direction you want.
  • Treasure Hunting: On rare occasions you will find treasure map fragments. Assemble them into a map and embark on a  thematic journey in order to find the hidden treasures of Hex: Origins. Always remember that X marks the spot!
Features
  • Over 800 levels of ever-increasing challenges with 3 difficulty options
  • Dynamic level difficulty & no unique solutions: the moves you make always alter the possible shapes that can be placed thus making it easier or harder for yourself. As you place these pieces the game will try to generate pieces that you can use. Plan ahead carefully. Finish a level in any way possible!
  • Shuffle mechanic: discard existing pieces and draw new ones in exchange for a tiny fraction of your progress bar.
  • 5 power-ups that you can use to slightly alter or completely change the game board.
  • Special bonus shapes: from time to time a difficult to place piece will appear (9+ hex piece). Place it on the board and successfully finish the level and earn extra rewards.
  • Complete in-game quests that range from easy to hard and get awesome rewards!
  • Open treasure chests and reap the rewards while you complete any level!
  • Unlock custom hex piece skins. Customize your board with that extra bling!
  • Customize the game experience with 9 beautiful backgrounds!
  • Cloud saving, achievements, stats, leaderboards, level editor, workshop and soon trading cards!

Hex: Origins reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Product received for free I love the puzzle, and Hex: Origins very pleased me. Why is it not worth 30 rubles? There are a lot of reasons For that. I met toys in a similar design, but so thoughtful among them was not. The Gameplay is hilarious fun and at the same time relaxing. Another Huge plus that there are four modes, each of which is quite independent and they are decently different from each other. Any of the players will pick up puzzles on the forces-for this is a choice of difficulty. There is nothing wrong About the graphical component. Paints are very pleasant, and most importantly very much liked the design of the game: it is not that very beautiful, but also intuitively understandable.

Product received for free Hex: Origins attracted its hexagons, something in this is a tempting, perhaps non-standard design always attracts attention. Despite The understandable description immediately enter the game failed. I Had to reread, and then get used. It is Good that the complexity of the tasks is progressing, and the first levels are passed by themselves, without much knowledge. It Turned out that in the beginning not all in the game is open and you need to earn points to unlock the content, but the more interesting to play. And so accordingly the more colors and the bigger the map the more difficult to play. There are various bonuses and skills, which makes the gameplay more diverse and interesting. Really liked the description of the game, you can not write in detail!

"Hex: Origins" Logic puzzle. Fill the field with elements of multi-colored hexagons. Gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1HCyC72ntM On The field draws a figure to be filled with elements of colored hexagons. The Elements can consist of 2-10 hexagons, combining from 1 to 6 different colors. The Basic rules are simple: if you place an element in empty cages, you can put anywhere, if the element is attached to the hexagons already available on the field, then at least one of the neighboring hexagons should correspond Color of the placed. The game has several modes and unlocked bonuses. Two modes are available from the beginning, others will open with passage. The "Classic" mode consists of 6 chapters of 6 levels with three variants of difficulty. The Second mode "Stream" differs from the classical only in that for passage it is necessary not only to fill the field, but also to connect batteries with lamps hexagons of one colour (to collect on a field a drawing so that they were connected by a colored line). The "Study" Mode is different in that there are no frames and stencils on the field, you can freely fold the elements in any direction. Treasure Hunt will open when you collect the map fragments in the main game. They fall out rather seldom. Interesting and addictive puzzle game! The game is still a lot of things: special quests, complex figures, treasure chests, unlocked bonuses, etc. The Only drawback-the quality of Russification. Support of the Russian language in the game is, but it is more reminding machine translation. You can read other reviews and subscribe to our curators. Welcome! 5 minutes of game
