Terry Cavanagh, the mind behind VVVVVV and Don't Look Back, brought Super Hexagon – a game already lauded among iOS, Mac, and Windows users – to Android, with its minimalistic, addictive gameplay intact.
The game, for those who don't know, is about as minimal as it gets – you control a small triangle on the outside of a central hexagon. In sync with a groovy beat, walls will quickly flood in. Your job is to avoid those walls for as long as possible. The game's trailer demonstrates the concept perfectly:
For added difficulty, the triangle is controlled not with gestures, but by tapping and holding. Holding your finger on the right side of the screen will cause the triangle to rotate right, while tapping the left side will move the triangle to the left.
Between its rhythmic beats, color-infused geometric visual style, and surprising control method, Super Hexagon is a devilishly difficult game, but one that's just difficult enough to frustrate you while still keeping you coming back for more punishment.
Those interested in picking up the game would be well-advised to do so soon – it's on sale for just $0.99 in celebration of its launch. Just hit the widget below to grab the download and spend the rest of the night navigating an insane loop of hexagonal walls.
