While it may not be the deepest game, or one for the faint of heart, Super Hexagon is truly a masterpiece of addicting and minimalistic game design that any fan of twitchy trials should clamor to place into their library. Perfection.
Super Hexagon is an incredible game. Its simplicity makes it accessible, and its challenge level is rewarding when you learn to overcome it. It will kill you fast and often, but the lightning-quick restart time will all but force another round. Maybe this time it’s possible to add a few seconds to the high score. Maybe this time it’s possible to clear 60 seconds and earn a new difficulty level. Or maybe you’ll crash into a wall after 3 seconds. Whatever happens, it involves getting lost in a spinning, color-shifting world driven by a heavy chip-tune beat. One more game leads to one more game, and then another after that. It’s practically the definition of arcade perfection.

Super Hexagon could be described as Tetris for the 21st century. Simple, no-nonsense gameplay that keeps you returning for a chance at achieving personal greatness. You just can't play one session. With a club-worthy retro gaming soundtrack, this iOS port will have you cramming in short and punchy gaming sessions wherever they fit into your busy life, and then some.

Super Hexagon will not appeal to everyone. Inevitably some will be put off after those first few abrupt game overs, and others may feel alienated by the lack of tangible reward. Yet the sheer simplicity of the concept, and the incredibly friendly price tag, makes it hard to complain. Super Hexagon is a master class in single-minded vision, minimalism in design, and pure addictive compulsion. Just be prepared to see it play on the insides of your eyelids when you go to bed at night.

A frenzied, elegant action game that pulses with great music and demanding thrills.

Super Hexagon fait partie de ces jeux qui ne peuvent laisser indifférent : si vous accrochez au principe, vous l’adorerez et y jouerez des heures entières, dans le cas contraire vous le haïrez et arrêterez d’y jouer au bout de 3 minutes. Avec son design minimaliste, sa bande-son chiptune et sa difficulté redoutable, il a autant d’atouts pour plaire aux fans de die and retry que d’éventuels défauts que pourront lui reprocher les non-initiés. Etant donné son prix ridiculement bas, il ne vous reste plus qu’à l’essayer pour vous faire une opinion bien tranchée à son sujet, n’est-ce pas ?

Super Hexagon è un titolo secco, rapido e decisamente difficile. Con un gameplay basilare basato su prontezza di riflessi e sangue freddo, il titolo di Cavanagh torna alle origini del gaming, togliendo tutto il superfluo e impegnando le attenzioni sul necessario. Pochi elementi ma sufficienti per tenere incollati allo schermo per ore fino al completamento dei cinque obiettivi presenti.
