I Beat This Game

Some of you already know I'm an avid player and I posted much of this information on Steam already. Maybe I'm a little too excited about it, but I want talk about it!

 

Super Hexagon

I bought this game at the beginning of the summer because I was looking for a really cheap game I could buy somebody so they could have a "premium" Steam account. (If you don't have any paid games in your Library, you are not permitted full access to Steam.)

After watching that trailer above on the Steam Store, I decided I was hooked and needed to try this game myself. Heck, this game is so cheap they even sell pairs of it for you and a friend (Not uncommon on Steam, really), so I bought two and kept one.

 

I started playing the game with the typical "This is harder than it looks" reaction.

But gradually I improved and got 60 seconds on the first level.

 

But then I wanted more, so I played and played and got 60 seconds on more levels. Then I replayed the levels and got over 100 seconds on some of them.

And now recently, I learned the final pattern of the game, the required to complete it.

So I played, and I got 57, then 57.48 seconds and I couldn't stop until I completed it.

Then I did.

 

22 hours in the making.

 

Anyway, here are some tips on how the game works.

  • Every level has a different set of patterns you have to learn in order to succeed at it. Some overlap, but some are different.
  • There are three base levels with harder versions called "Hyper Mode"
  • For every base level you complete (60 seconds minimum), you unlock a Hyper Mode level.
  • When you complete the final Hyper Mode level, you enter the Hexagon void, and once you die, the ending happens.

If you enjoy simple, potentially addictive games, Super Hexagon can be quite fun to play and own.

There's also an Arcade Mode in which you can play your friends and not change your personal records.

 

Current personal bests:

 

Hexagoner: 170 secs

Hyper Hexagonist: 82 secs

I'm not sure I can wrap my mind around that trailer; it's mesmerizing and yet disconcerting. O_o

Super Hexagon is a fantastically addictive game. Even got into Adventure Time.

I've heard and seen too much about this game, and this was the final straw. I just (finally) bought it. I love games with a competitive high score community anyway, so it should be fun.

I played this game. Now Hexagons are burned into my retinas.

Does this mean Super Hexagon has potentially lethal effects, and in extreme cases worse than Heroin?

(This is not a serious question.)

I dare you to beat my records.

You can do it. Just about memorizing the patterns and building up your eye/hand coordination, which this game helps with.

As far as I know the patterns are randomized.  I haven't played the game but my friend pays it during our math lecture every day.  It doesn't look like a game I'd pay though lol.

Let us just wait and see.

 

For science of course.

Now all you have to do is right a guide and world rank, Hidi. Best of luck of luck on the latter.

Everyone says Chipzel is great, and I quite agree. Spectra is definitely my favourite.

Yes, the game is about memorizing patterns. Every level has its own pattern you have to learn to succeed at it. However the order in which you see the patterns is randomized so if you don't know the level's pattern, you may be able to get a good amount of time before you're screwed.
