Nope. Who cares about easy when you can just skip to hard! Great music, great graphics, great gameplay, great difficulty, great stupid bad reviews. Wonderfamous.
Great game if you're looking for a challenge
To those reading reviews on whether or not to get the game, keep in mind most negative reviews are just people complaining about difficulty. Super Hexagon is a minimalistic endless survival game that heavily relies on flashing colors and fast moving shapes (epileptic seizure warning). Depending on the player, it can take a great deal of time to learn where to keep your eyes and how to react to the patterns in the game, after that it's just a matter of perfecting your timing and knowing when to go left or right for certain patterns. If you don't know what you're in for when purchasing the game, I recommend looking up YouTube videos of people playing super hexagon yourself to get an idea of what you're about to play.
That being said, this game was intended to be very difficult. I've spent hours and hours to unlock all the levels and I've yet to beat the last one. If you can't play it well but you enjoy the game for what it is, good for you, the game gives a great sense of reward and self-satisfaction when you do complete levels. But really the negative reviews are mostly people who didn't give much chance to a game with a (knowingly) steep learning curve.
Game is wonderfully difficult. The recent resolution support made it better for mobile. Don't get it if you aren't up for an actually hard game and you're just looking for a casual endless survival.
Don't listen to the idiots giving it a low rating.
This game is pretty awesome.
