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.
I've been hard at work, listening to feedback, and realising that people like to feel a sense of achievement. This major update tries to help with that by adding new Game Center Achievements. Some are easy to attain, some are quite hard. All are attainable. If you've been playing for a while, then where possible any achievements that the game can determine you have already earned will be applied (let us know if they aren't). The harder ones, like taking control, or conquering a tile or world will not be retroactively applied; that's in the too hard basket (even for me) for now; the rest should be pretty automatic.
Another thing I've done in response to feedback is add a little more smarts into the move validation so that if you try a move that would just result in it being a wasted move (i.e., you attempt to take a cell that would be immediately overpowered), the move will be rejected.
Goodness, no matter how nice you players are, the code just seems to have problems letting some of you enjoy yourselves. A bug fix was added at the last minute for a reasonably old bug causing the game to crash for some special, though unfortunate players.
And finally, because it seems to be standard these days, bug fixes and improvements.
