Sometimes you encounter a game and can’t help but thinking that it ran away from an arcade in the 80s and that time changed irrevocably because it wasn’t there. Hexagon is one of those games. The controls are very simple, employing only the arrow or WASD keys to control the player. The player is an arrow that can orbit around the center of the screen. The object is to dodge the the lines that are moving in towards the center.
The levels go from point to line, all the way up to forming a hexagon. In order to get to line you need to last 10 seconds and the time goes up from there. Remember the good old days of arcade fun where a game was short and you could just keep hitting restart until you had to go do something else? We’re talking on the scale of a minute is winning. I love games that I can use to fill in the gaps in my day, just for a little fun before going back to the day to day.
The graphics are simple and visually appealing. Even the sound makes it feel like you’re in an arcade. It remembers your best time and also displays how much longer you need in order to make it to the next level.
I really enjoy playing Hexagon. Its simple fun and well made. It loads quickly and you can immediately jump right in and play. That right there is one feature of games that I look for. I highly suggest you check out Hexagon. It is very good, very well made and very fun. I award Hexagon 4.5 out of 5 hearts.
