Review Hexed

Brandon Girod
Features three game modes, great looking aesthetic
Touch input in the menus is off, game modes are pretty basic, there isn't much reason to replay games over again
Do you like hexagons? Because if you do then Hexed for Android is a game that has a lot of them. It’s actually more than one game, though. There are three games packed into one that utilize the same hexagonal board in different ways.
I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting from this game, but the variety of game modes I found were totally surprising. Although, I don’t want to give off the impression that surprise is a good thing. It’s simply different.
The first game mode has you memorizing 5 colors. You’ve got a few seconds to do so and then you need to scour the game board to find colors that match the order you remembered. Based on what I played the game didn’t really get any more difficult. You didn’t have to memorize more things, and it was basically exactly what you saw at face value.
The other two games were equally basic. One has you constantly matching a never ending amount of colors to pieces on the board and the other has you playing a basic game of match.
The game is written in awkward, broken English and the menu’s touch input is really unreliable. The broken English is somewhat difficult to understand at parts and the way they explain each game isn’t really intuitive at all.
Hexed is a 3-in-1 game that looks great but doesn’t really have the mechanics to back it up. It doesn’t do a very good job explaining the games, and the gameplay itself is just kind of lackluster and boring to play through.

Hexed for Android will test your memory, reaction time and more by providing three different game modes to enjoy with as little hassle as possible.
Players can choose between game modes including Megabrain, where users must tap tiles by order of the color that was briefly displayed before the start of the game. Almighty fingers, the app’s second mode is a test of dexterity and finally we have Twins, the final game mode where all the tiles are briefly flashed and tests the user’s memory by having him select two of the same color until they are all dismissed.
The game’s most powerful feature is the help button, which will provide some much needed information regarding each type of game’s elements and power-ups. Before the start of each game users are able to use acquired points to purchase an assortment of power-ups that can be relied upon when in need. Each of these comes with its own comic description, and an assortment of small, typos that make it somewhat more hilarious.
The game includes a few decent techno soundtracks to complement its modern interface. Artistically the game feels well put together, offering a quality interface and a well-chosen color scheme to blend in with every aspect.
Overall Hexed is a fun little brain teaser. The game may not be the highest quality and there may still be some spelling errors lying around, yet for those seeking a relaxing game with soothing techno sound track and sound effects, it delivers. The game’s simplistic nature is enough to captivate users, and make it a great game to play while travelling, or whenever a few free moments arise.
