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

(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!

Nice concept and very good implementation. Though the fact that the only medal I didn't unlock was the "invest 2h" means it was a bit easy. I also would like to have one 'undo latest move' per level to just correct that last spastic move I made. Finally some more types of hexes could be fun, like triple hexes, switches that changes the hexes or gates maybe, conditionally impassable hexes etc.

Awesome and addicting as hell, I've been playing this all week. The levels are fun and get pretty damn challenging. The one problem I have is with the level editor which is really buggy. I can't even set regular tiles there and a lot of the time the editor starts to chug and get wonky. But the fact that there is even an extra feature like that is impressive so you won't lose any points from me.

Great game I like how simple but challenging it is will come back for sure.
