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!

A very addictive and well-made puzzle game that'll stump anyone and make them plan out outcomes for hours on end. Congrats for your masterpiece, my good man.

Brilliantly designed! Puzzle games in general require skilled design, and this game is a superb balance between simple, intuitive game-play with increasingly challenging, complex solutions.

Bravo!

Great game! I thought it was a very original concept, and it was executed well. It's also very frustrating. I could only get to level 8!

The whole concept is quite interesting. A simple puzzle game with the use of hexagons and moving the mouse to turn tiles into colored ones. Each level is interesting enough to make me go on and on and on so its a very good thing :) Btw the song is kind of relaxing and makes it easier for me to focus too.

so in conclusion:
Graphics: Though its just hexagons and tiles, it does give off a stylized 3D effect which is just great and the use of different colors each time it goes into a new set of puzzle or restart it (4)
Music: Somewhat like trance music and kinda comfortable and not pressured when playing the game. Would become boring though after some time listening to it so would ask you to put in some more music like this one. (3)
Concept: The whole concept is original and isn't like the traditional puzzle games so its a plus (4.5)

Thus, i'm giving this a rating of 4 stars due to what I've noted on the music part. :)

"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."

Interesting concept with simple graphics. I do love the background music - which you can change at settings, "Light" (dance) and "Dark" (mystic), "Party" being unavailable at the moment, I presume.

Art: N/A because there are only hexagons. :)
Sound: 4 stars (too few soundtracks)
Concept: 4.5 stars (simple yet brain-tickling)
Gameplay: 3 stars or 4 stars [non-puzzle lover versus puzzle lover]
Overall: 3.8 stars or 4.2 stars
Final Average: 4 stars
