Hexad is a quick little puzzle game where you click on groups of hexes to remove them from the screen. If, in doing so, you separate the connected hexes into groups, the smaller groups all disappear. The goal is to make all the hexes disappear given a limited number of clicks. Some hexes can't be clicked on, so you have to find a way to put those into a small group to make them disappear.
|I don't know why, but this level killed me.|
Each level offers at least four ways to beat it, since you can click on each of the four colors as your last move, and you get a mark for completing the level and ending on that color. My minor complaint about that is that in some levels you can win two ways just by repeating your previous moves verbatim but switching the order of the last two hexes you click on, so there's not always too much challenge in discovering a completely new sequence of moves. However, you also get more stars for beating a level under the maximum number of moves (although I think you might also get three stars just by beating a level with all four colors last).
It's a fun little minimalist game that has some challenging replayability to each level (if beating a level once isn't challenging enough for you), but the biggest draw for me is the music.
I don't know what that tune is, if I've heard it before or what, but my god does it ever get stuck in your head. When you click off the game, the music pauses, which is a blessing, because if it didn't, I'd be listening to it until I went crazy. They must have tested this game without that and sent half their tester to the nuthouse.
Now that I think about it, it sounds like the Super MarioLand music somewhere.
Do do do do, do do do do...
I take it back! You can do other stuff and listen at once! I'm doing it now!
Wah doot doot, wah doot doot...
