The game from the independent developer Terry Cavanagh. The final version is based on the prototype gameplay from the same developer.

A player is a miniature arrow that rotates around a central hexagon. The main task is to avoid collision with hexagon limits. The position of the limits varies depending on the difficulty level. The game is considered complete after player survives for 60 seconds. Everything moves with incredible speed and the task to keep up is not a simple one. The game increases the difficulty depending on how long the player lasted.

The atmosphere of the game is already aggressive, there is a lack of an easy level of difficulty and rhythmic music and a constant screen-flickering. The combination will wake anyone. Initially, the game was released for mobile devices, after it was ported to the PC.

Super Hexagon reviews and comments

8/10 - Maybe I will come back to this one day and finish everything... But for now, I give up. Amazing OST.

Super Hexagon is a great Game for in between. :P There's actually not much to write about the game itself, who watches trailers or Gameplays knows how the Game works. Running Head to head for the highest Score with Friends or the like you can really sit there cramped and just don't want to counter somewhere yet. ^^ For the Price of just under €3 at the moment, it is definitely recommended. I'd also recommend it for €10, because it's just fun.

This Game, what is called "Super Hexagon," is a Game Of skill. What I noticed especially when I was creating the third Stage "Hexagonest" was that you not only buy a Game for the little Money, but also Syringes filled With Adrenaline. In the Beginning, this Game can be quite confusing, that you don't Feel like it anymore. But then that lingers in the Game Library and you somehow feel an Urge to play it. This Game is about dodging all the blocks that are moving towards the Middle. You play a small Triangle in front of the Middle, which tries to escape these Blocks in a fortified Circular track. I always think of this as a little Typi that is washed down in the Middle and he tries to escape the Water Molecule. ;) At some Point you've reached a Point where you're gradually getting better. In the first Stage, everything is actually still quite slow: The Blocks are lame at the Beginning and the Blocks form simple Patterns to escape from them. The second Stage is not very much faster, but as the Environment confuses more and the Patterns become more complex. At the third Stage the Blocks race and some nasty Traps are here. At the Stage, you'll probably have to crack the longest. Here, however, you can train well and improve your Reaction. And here comes the Allure of the Game: You try to break your Record, but it still has that Adrenaline rush and I have to say it just feels good and it really keeps coming out as you approach your old Record! The other three Stages are of course just something for Freaks, I'm really not sure if I'm Bothering, because at some point there is also a Point where you just can't do any more. But for Pastime, these Modis are certainly Gold Value. With the bit Of Tipping what the Game costs, you really can't go wrong.
