Make your stamp on the worlds of our Solar System!
World of Hex is a game of strategy played on a board as big as our solar system where the populated areas of the worlds are divided into hexagonal tiles, and each of those tiles is a game board — with a state that is alive in the cloud.
When you play a game within a tile, that tile stays as you left it until either you, or another player, chooses to play there too.
So you can claim territory by playing and winning, but you don’t only play for yourself; you also play for your faction.
What happens when you aren’t playing? What happens to the territory you’ve claimed? Well, you have an AI that will defend it for you.
When you start playing, your AI will only know a couple of commands, however as you build up more XP and level-up, you’ll be able to configure your AI to do more, and defend your territory with more ability. After some play, you will earn the ability to program your AI.
If you like a strategy, turn based game, then World of Hex is both simple to play but world-spanning in its scope.

Society as we know it has failed.
Thanks to flawed political systems, global warming, and the reckless exploitation of resources, all of the old boundaries and loyalties are gone.
We live in a world where everyone belongs to one of four factions who are constantly vying for control over the Solar System.
Humanities colonies have been divided into world tiles. Control over these world tiles is contested by members of each faction.
This is where you come in. The more often you play, the more you can do for your faction. Your faction needs you!
Each world tile is further broken into territories. Control of a tile is achieved by ensuring that your faction controls the most territory within the tile.
Territory is claimed by building settlements that influence the surrounding territory. Enemies can threaten you, and overwhelm you if you don't defend effectively.
Settlements can be reinforced either by building them up, or spreading out and taking neighboring territory.
v2.0 and later versions of the game support an alternate story behind the game, though the game play is the same. For fans of The Expanse™, there are a number of optional visual elements that have been added. These are available via the themes button once you have access to your AI. Please note that these visual elements are provided as a tribute to The Expanse™ and in no way represent an offical endorsement of World of Hex.
Fixed a bug causing crashes after launch on some devices.

It’s kinda good but little more complicated
Well I really do like how the game is payed out to take over hexes and fight. I love how it’s allowing space takeover. Just that I don’t know what to do at all I mean I know the basic to attack by clicking on hexes and placing the hexes to take over others. As I didn’t intend to download or buy this game. I wanted to look at the game as I accidentally did my finger print and downloaded and used my money to buy this game. I wanted the game but didn’t look if it was free which was stupid of me. But the game might be good if it had a more intended tutorial and a more practice based selection for practicing how to do things. It might be good but it’s kinda a just gonna be sitting in my storage until I finally declare to delete it still figuring it out. Good luck everyone with the game. This game definitely don’t fit me.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your constructive feedback. I did try to provide tips and help on a players first few games but it sounds like that may not be enough. I appreciate your time in writing this and hope I can find a way to improve the help to explain the game play.
Took a moment to acquaint myself with the type of strategy, but once discovered, quite enjoyable...
If only someone could create a mobile version to Gloomhaven or Firefly...hmmm
