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!

This has to be the best overall and most challenging puzzle game I've played on Newgrounds. Perfect futuristic music and smooth graphics just completed it. The frustration this game gives me is incomparable because any mistake you made is on you; not due to poor programming or to glitches, but you. That is what frustrated me the most haha. Fantastic. Deserves 6 stars in my opinion. I'm excited for more! :D

I found this game to be pretty good, but my main flaw was that I couldn't advance. I was amazed by how complicated this turned out to be. I have no idea when I'm going to get my first medal. There was so little description, but I guess that was the point. There wasn't much in terms of graphics, but it was nice for what it is. I wish I could understand what the title meant.

I'm not really good at these puzzle games. The music was actually pretty nice too. I liked how it at least had pretty straightforward gameplay. For people who are more competant at these kinds of games, check this out! People probably should because of how crazy it is.

Amazing puzzle game.
I had to route my paths in ms paint for several levels.
Currently stuck on level 29; I can't make heads or tails of it.

Yay, I did it (beat level 30)!

Not sure what to say at this point, it's a good game. Didn't encounter any bugs, don't know what I could add to make it better. Not quite fun or complex enough for higher than four stars from me.
