Reviews: Super Hexagon

A hexagon has six sides. Up to five sides of this one will kill you.

This game combines four key elements to make a truly superb and probably unique experience: first, it runs absolutely silky-smooth 100% of the time; second, it has an excellent soundtrack that is ideally suited to repeated listenings; third, it is brutally hard; and fourth, it is not punishingly hard, because when you lose, you lose less than a minute — press one key and you're playing again instantly.

Some games are sprawling, enormous, lush worlds in which one can be lost for hours; Super Hexagon is a tiny, flawless jewel.
