Update: I apologize if this post shows up in your reader more then once. Wordpres went crazy on me.
To make my little review a little less boring, I sketched this cartoon so you can see what happens to you 99% of the time in this game. You die.. A lot. Super Hexagon is a deceptively simple ‘tunnel’ game in which you guide a arrow circling around a giant hexagon. Walls are constantly coming toward you. If you hit a wall, its ‘game over’. There is six levels in this game. Your goal in each level is to survive the entourage of walls for 60 seconds. Sound simple, right? Ha! With the world constantly rotating, pulsating, and throwing out deviant patterns in your way. On your first try you will be fortunate if you survive for 5 seconds. It’s a hard game. But the more you play, the farther down the level you will get. Making it to the 60 second mark felt more rewarding to me then completing a 60 hour RPG. That says a lot. Right now (til January 2,2014) it’s on sale at steam for a mere 59 cents. Since it takes a couple hours per level, it’s a great value. http://store.steampowered.com/app/221640/
