❖❖❖ WIZARD HEX: AN ELEMENTAL GAME OF STRATEGY ❖❖❖ Wizard Hex is an easy to learn but challenging to win traditional board game using a beautiful hexagonal board for 1-6 friends or computer helpers. You select one of six magical elements and together with your adjacent allies, you expand, stack and attack your way to victory.
"With other 'classic' board-games making the transition to iOS devices, it's great to see something new taking the center stage."
"Wizard Hex only takes a bit of practice to ease in to, but once you've played a game or six with friends it will become a staple of anyone's party-game collection."

"Wizard Hex is a brilliantly original board game … So far I’ve been rewarded handsomely for my purchase with games like Small World and Carcassonne filling my time. Now I can add Wizard Hex, a game playable on both my iPad and iPod Touch, to that list!"
— GameZebo.com (4/5 stars)
"Presentation-wise, Wizard Hex looks absolutely superb on whatever platform you choose to play it on. From my humble iPod Touch 2G to the office iPad, the game looks stunning and interaction with the pieces is smooth and sublime."
"I loaded up the game, started to play, and I am embarrassed to say how much time went by before I took a breath! … The endless strategy and game play abounds and literally no two games will ever be alike. You think you have mastered a strategy when suddenly it fails and you must think quickly and move forward in that game another way."

Imagine a dark tower — where the forces of the world are harnessed by those brave enough and smart enough to control them. A wizard’s power brings these elements together: the wicked wind, rolling water, contracting ice, tumbling earth, lapping fire and sudden lightning. They will compete to establish control for once and for all.
Wizard Hex — a seemingly simple game. Played on a elegantly designed hexagonal board, you choose your element and then challenge yourself against as many as five other players or as few as one smart computer to attempt to be the strongest and to take forever control.
You begin as an Apprentice, learn to be a Journeyman and eventually challenge yourself and others at the Wizard Level. You play not only your own element but the friendly elements found on either side. Together you struggle to Expand to new regions, Transmute from Bronze to Silver to indestructible Gold, and Attack when the opportunity arises. All the time defending and consolidating a winning position. A new strategy game of resource management and area control — Chess or Go for the modern age.
Wizard Hex is such a great strategy game that we are releasing it first as a traditional abstract piece moving game. Next in Wizard Hex's future our goal, when possible, is to populate the game with unique Spells that will allow for a more modern fantasy experience. The portal to this clever creation is just now opening … are you ready?
What's New in Version 1.3.4
Thank you for such great support and nice words for Wizard Hex. We've heard from fans who have said things like:
Superb thinking man's game! — What a wonderful game this is. It's like a modern day Go or Chess, guaranteed to tease the brain cells and intrigue the strategists. It's also aesthetically pleasing to look at and with so many variations in gameplay depending on how you set it up, there's just so much to explore! It's a must buy.
...and from a fan in Italy:
F A N T A S T I C O !!

Not perfect, but wanted to give it 5 stars anyway
Just because I appreciate what the developers have produced. This is a very simple, easy to learn, yet ultimately very deep game. Modern day Go or Chess is an apt description. The graphics are superb, the interface is classy, and I have never experienced crashing on my iPad 2. Looking forward to the rumored potential update that will make it a little more wizardly, but I hope those rules are optional, as spells and whatnot might turn off some new players. I haven't pushed the limits of the AI yet, but I haven't found the first two levels of difficulty to be much of any trouble. But I'm too chicken to try out the master level...
Anyway, well worth my money and time!
So much potential
I am very impressed with this game, maybe more so than any other iOS game that I've had. Unfortunately it seems to have been abandoned. Shame! All you need to do is add asynchronous play so that the few people playing can connect and then run a price cut or giveaway to raise awareness about this wonderful game.
I have had more apps than I can count. I have never bothered to review one before. That should be a testament to how well made this game is. Perfect mix of simplicity and strategy. I don't know if this game was a new concept or not but it's like they've reinvented chess.
