Super Hexagon (Update: The beast has been slain!)
UPDATE: After four or five months since purchasing and first playing Super Hexagon, I have finally completed it!! That final stage -- Hyper Hexagonest -- was a motherfucker to complete, but I today I finally beat it (66 seconds was my score).
I couldn't see a post on this life-sapping narcotic of a game.
If you haven't heard of it already, check out the trailer below:
The game has six stages (as an example of the game's sadistic sense of humour, the first stage's difficulty is labelled as hard, completely skipping the convention of offering easy and normal options). You control the tiny triangle in the middle, you can rotate it clockwise or anticlockwise about the pulsating hexagon; the aim is to navigate your way around the concentric polygonal maze spiraling into the center of the screen. If you survive for 60 seconds, you've completed the stage and the next stage is unlocked. In subsequent stages the patterns and formations become harder to deal with, and the pace ticks up a notch.
It's massively addictive... I wrote this post to make people aware of it (you can get it on iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows) and to also ask... has anyone here completed it yet? I'm currently at 56.13 seconds on the Hyper version of the Hexagonest stage (difficulty: hardestestest!) -- just four seconds away from victory! I've been hacking away at this for months now, I've sank hours upon hours of my existence into this game -- has it been the same for anyone else?
