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!

loved it

One of the more addictive games I've tried in a long while - I really like how this makes me think without making things TOO frustrating...yet.

There's a problem with level 25. One of the hexagons is missing so the level can't really be completed. The missing hexagon is supposed to connect the longest "pennisula path" to the rest of the puzzle Other than that, the game is fun to play and it's a real challenge to complete all the levels.

try my face:

Concept has been done to death, but i like the graphics of the game! Also the interactive gameplay(just clicking to restart a level is nice and comfortable) however they get too hard too fast, just by level 10 or so it was more trial and error than thinking, because you would have to had a crazy memory to be able to finish a level without trying first.

However the menu was bad, really confusing. I saw what you were trying to do, but it didn't work.
