Super Hexagon is hard enough to infuriate, but its competent design makes it inviting as well. This game will invite you to have one more try (taking less than a second to restart), and it'll invite you to immerse yourself and play instinctively too: for a game like this, that's the greatest invitation of all.

Super Hexagon is a simple, engaging game, perfect for the mobile experience. You'll go in thinking you'll play a short game, but soon find yourself repeating the same level at least a couple of dozen times, quickly jabbing at the screen to restart after cursing loudly from the ridiculous mistake you just made. Each play through is worth it though, as just breaking your own personal record by a second will give you a level of satisfaction you wouldn't expect to feel.

Super Hexagon gets inside your gut and makes it ache for another round, for the surpassing of your previous time, and for an expertise you’re not quite sure you’ll ever attain…but need to.

Super Hexagon is a work of art skillfully combined with monstrous difficulty. The game is both hypnotic and addictive, and unless fast-twitch gameplay entirely alienates you, you’re going to get lost in this sea of shapes.

Inexpensive, innovative, and sensory-spinning thrills of this caliber are rare.

Super Hexagon doesn’t have a whole lot to it with its survival gameplay, but it’s still plenty of fun and I found myself coming back. Fans of Terry Cavanagh’s work and even those unfamiliar with him should definitely check this out.

Super Hexagon punishes more than it rewards, but the adrenaline rush you get from playing far exceeds any mental anguish. Well, at least until you check out the best times on the Game Center leaderboards. Sobering, to say the least.

A simple yet addictive game idea with good presentation can go a long way towards greatness, and Super Hexagon definitely fits this description.

Tough, frustrating, and a little too twitchy, Super Hexagon is nonetheless a skilfully constructed and compelling game / instrument of torture.
