Actually, I could write exactly the same thing at This Point as I Did in my review of Hexcell's Predecessor, because In the End Hexcells Plus is absolutely identical to its Predecessor. There are again 36 (of course other) Puzzles whose orange Fields in minesweeper style have to be marked blue (left Mouse button) or black (right Mouse button). In order to make the right Selection, there are various Auxiliary Information with which the Witch fields are marked accordingly in a logical Exclusion method. Just like in Minesweeper, the Number in a black Field indicates how many of the maximum six adjacent Fields are blue. In addition, there are sometimes Indications how many blue Fields are on a Line or whether the blue Fields are contiguous {x} or distributed-x-. There are, however, two Innovations, and these concern the Solution Aids. So there are black Fields that only one? So you don't know how many blue Fields there are around. In order to avoid getting into Situations where only guessing would help, there are blue Fields with a number as new Clues. This Number indicates how many blue Fields are present within a 2 Witch fields. This new Game element makes the later Puzzles quite more challenging, because in places you can only get to the Solution by combining several Hints. Verdict: Anyone who liked Hexcells gets fair puzzle boost in Customary Quality with Hexcell's Plus. And if you only like to solve Logicals in Magazines in the Approach or like to play a Game of Minesweeper, you can also access here without hesitation, especially at a Price of almost €3. And you don't have to have played the Predecessor to understand the "Story" of the Successor, either. ;)

The Game is, unfortunately!, not good. It would be almost as good. The Puzzles (if properly designed) were clearly more challenging than in Part 1 (Hexcells), so I felt really well entertained. But where I think in the 1 Part you could still solve all the Puzzles without guessing, I know here for sure with some and with many I am pretty sure that in some places one can only get ahead by guessing. This is partly obvious, so intentional. Rates! In a pure Logic puzzle! I don't use Exclamation Points in a Review otherwise, but here ... If I'm still wrong, I'll take the Review back here. Interested Parties certainly know the Logic Puzzles from various Magazines and you just don't have to guess with the high-quality ones. This is the Essence of a Logic Puzzle. According To this, Hexcells Plus is just an inconsequential Pastime. If I Don't get any further, I just try it out. Nothing Hurts either, because if the Field is not blue, it is just black and I will move on. But This devalues the Power of having solved a Mystery. So I can always solve a "Puzzle" and have no Sense Of achievement. One Consolation is that perhaps Half of the Puzzles are actually solvable without guessing. And these have partly real Depth and claim the grey Cells. I really liked this Puzzles, especially if the Clues were really enough to solve everything. That's how all the Puzzles should be. Pro & Contra: + Part excellent, challenging Puzzles-Many Puzzles, some of which can only be solved by guessing: 04/10 That some Puzzles can only be solved in places only by Guessing, the otherwise very good Game, which is actually a logic puzzle, devalues in terms of the Idea, which is actually a Logic Puzzle. There are also some purely logical soluble Puzzles. If that is enough for you, then you can buy it.
