Description

Super Hexagon is a minimal action game. The player controls a small triangle shape in a fixed position in the middle of the screen. The only possible interaction is quickly rotating the shape in a clockwise or counterclockwise circle with a fixed radius to avoid oncoming shapes (usually hexagons) and walls that match the music's rhythm. Shapes often only have a little open space the player has to steer towards to pass it. Shapes can rotate as well and there are some tricks and difficulties where speed and movement is suddenly reversed. There is only one try: when dead, the level has to be restarted. There are six difficulty levels and the last three are unlocked one by one as the first three are completed. Optionally the game can be played in an arcade mode with a high score screen.
