Editors' Notes

Terry Cavanagh’s Super Hexagon is quite simply one of the most challenging games we’ve ever played. A pulsating chiptunes soundtrack underscores the danger as swirling walls close in around you and you race to escape the contracting maze. With the geometric action heaping on the punishment (the easiest difficulty is appropriately labelled “Hard”), every small achievement feels like a massive victory, whether you’re topping your high score or overcoming a singularly tricky section.

Amazing Game, definitely recommend!


Here's some advice to you, the developer of this game - you know that SUPER hard stage? The one that only appears in Hexagoner Hyper Mode? The one where you have to tap twice one way, then twice the other? Remove it. Kick it. Insult its mother. Do whatever you have to in order to get it to go away. It's the only section of the game I don't actually enjoy, since if it occurs after around the five second mark, the chance of me dying is about 85%, and if it occurs at any time after 10 seconds in, the chances are probably 100%, that I'll die. Please take it out. Apart from that, the game's awesome and by far the best value for money game I've ever bought.

Great game


Great game but needs updating because there is a bug in the game where I keep catching the sides of the blocks or walls when I can touch them and I don't die but when I am on the non wall side and I'm just too close to the border where it changes colours, i die and I've screen shot the death and zoomed into where the arrow is and I'm not near the wall. Please please please fix this because it keeps happening on the hardestestest level and I keep getting around 25:43 seconds. I'm on the 2nd to last level after completing hexagonest normal version.
