Beat Level 7 5 Points So you've figured out how the game works..
Make a level 5 Points Get creative with the level editor
"Invest" 2 hours in the game 10 Points All things in moderation. Especially breaks, don't want to overdo it with those.
Beat Level 13 10 Points That's the easy part out of the way.
Beat Level 17 10 Points That was the small-scale stuff. Literally.
Beat Level 24 25 Points Onto the elite four! Spoiler: there's a fifth. I hated when that happened in the Pokemon games.
Beat Level 28 25 Points Nearly there, two more to go! Hexagons probably aren't high up on your list of favorite shapes right now.
Complete HEXEP 50 Points Nice!

(Best played in Chrome or - though the level editor lags - Firefox. Avoid with IE due to glitches, working on that)

A simple yet increasingly challenging puzzle game about lighting a path through hexagons.

Comes with a level editor for creating levels and sharing them through Newgrounds' new(ish) data API, and also some medals to unlock.

Use the mouse to light up unlit tiles (by rolling over them), with the brighter coloured tiles as starting points. Click to restart the level. Some tiles have different requirements, such as needing to be covered twice or in a particular order.

The idea was to make a puzzle game where the puzzle or challenge wasn't in failing to understand the mechanics or accidentally missing something. Many puzzle games (point and click, spot the difference games, sometimes the puzzle elements of RPGs etc) could be quite cheap I felt, so I tried to make the focus of this on understanding and mastering a fairly simple concept instead of overloading you with new, confusing stuff. That went quite well and the game does manage to get incredibly challenging. Also, you can switch the theme from the options menu for a change of atmosphere. Enjoy!

I don't always write game reviews, but this awesome puzzle really deserves it!
This game increase it's difficult in a smooth way, making the player adapt to it, learning new strategies and stuff. In the last 3 levels, I was about to collapse!
The background music was perfectly fitted and the graphics were really cool too!
I liked so much this game! I think that you should do a bigger version for Android, Apple and others smartphone systems, with half of the levels for free. So we could have even more fun and you could make some profit too! You deserve it after all.
Thanks for the great game! Keep up this way!

Absolutely Amazing Game! I loved the puzzles in the Zelda: Oracle of Ages that were similar to this game (except that used squares and enemies to distract you). Ingenious design, colorful yet simple graphics, great music for thinking (I actually left the game on when I took a break just to listen to the music) and wonderfully designed levels. I actually finished the entire 30 levels and I was very satisfied after completing it. Make some more great stuff!

This game is like Q-bert meets the iPod game Flow. It is very puzzling, especially if you don't know what your doing. The sound is very fitting, it has a feel to it that makes you concentrate more and more on the game. Very good game. Keep it up
