It's just so so good this.

This is one of those rare, arcade perfect things. A pure, undiluted game.

It's worth every penny.


Yep - everything about it is perfect, sound, music, controls, graphics, secrets, challenges, leaderboards, quick restarts and zero unecessary plot.

I have an evening to myself tonight so once I have walked the dogs I am going to play this until my eyes bleed and see if I can make some headway into that bastard Zoidberg's score on arcade.

I had some time to myself so once I had eaten I played this to make sure that bastard Trousers didn't catch me up.

267M and 109th on the leaderboard. Sorry

That was amazing* timing. I had a go on it and upped my score by about 60m to 192 million then went to the leaderboard to gloat, only to find out since I had started playing you had gone and got *that* score. You're not even sorry.

I'm getting much better at managing the human multiplier now and dashing the shit out of stuff. Each playthrough teaches you something new.

*ultimately depressing

Yep, I think I've found most of the secret levels and humans on the first four worlds but don't get them all on a single play through.
I need to practice world five a lot more as I hardly get any there, and I know I could do a bit better on herding humans to keep the multiplier up.

I'm also not sure how to do the final boss without getting hit a couple of times.

There's definitely room for me to improve but I don't think I'm going to touch the 1 billion scores at the top of the leaderboard.

I bought this on Steam last night. I had one game of ARCADE mode on ROOKIE skill level and thought the whole thing looked and sounded jolly splendid, and was a superb game.

Then I played Hearthstone, did my backups (including offsite), and watched telly for the rest of the evening.

I will definitely return to this, possibly on a Friday night when I've had a 'glass' of wine, the family is in bed, and I can get headphoned up in a darkened room, crank up the volume, and wank myself silly have a good extended play session.

There appears to be some sort of option for cross-platform scoreboards so I'll have to look into that, so Dr Z and Trousers can make me miserable.

It seems to be one these games where lots of things will have to be learned and secrets found to snag a challenging score.

OMG - redline mode

For when you think the normal game just is not fast enough - how about double the speed !

Nope. Could not cope with that. Maybe 20 odd years ago but quite frankly fuck it.

Give it a go. It's not that bad after a while.

I always found that playing Super Hexagon on a faster mode then switching back to the normal mode made the game feel positively sedate. Definitely made it easier after that, but could never work out if it was a good thing or not.

Nice work Zoidberg

I did Forest on Redline line last night. I didn't lose a life.

Or blink for 6 minutes. Ow.

321M and 70th on one life. Maximum multiplier is pegged at 100.

I'm finding more secrets but there's room for improvement still.

A smidge under 400M and 51st on Rookie now that I know where most of the secrets are, and I'm getting better at chaining.
Now back to Experienced difficulty for a while. I need to get to the end on 1 credit to see the hidden boss level.

I yoinked this and was most shocked when it cost me £7.39.

FAKE NEWS I tell you.

I too have now bought it.

Grim..., if we hadn't had to spend that extra 39p we could have combined our funds to buy 0.000099246 bitcoins.
