Does the old-school MSN game mean a lot to you and now you are looking for a great mobile version of Hexic? This is your app!

"Hexic - the original game" is a tile-matching puzzle game where you should rotate hexagonal tiles to create certain patterns. The objective of Hexes is to rotate hexagonal pieces of various colors and clear them from the board by forming clusters or flowers.
Clusters are formed when three pieces of the same color touch each other. Pieces above the cleared pieces fall, potentially forming more clusters and causing chain reactions, and new pieces appear at the top of the board.
Bonuses are awarded for clearing more than three pieces at a time, and some pieces contain bonus stars, which yield extra points and can clear larger groups of pieces depending on how they are cleared.
You can create a "silver-star" by arranging six like-coloured pieces into a hexagon or "flower", surrounding a piece of a different color or type. The surrounding pieces are cleared, and the center piece is replaced by a silver-star (unless the center piece was already a silver-star, in which case a new silver-star drops from the top). A silver-star allows you to rotate all surrounding pieces clockwise or counterclockwise.
Forming a flower of silver-stars changes the center piece into a black pearl, which allows you to move three surrounding pieces in a Y or inverted Y pattern.
The ultimate goal of the game is to form a cluster or flower of black pearls, after which the game will end.
Bombs appear occasionally throughout the game. A bomb is colored like other pieces on the board and can be defused by rotating it into a cluster or flower of the same color. The counter on the bomb counts down with each move, and if allowed to reach zero, it explodes and the game is over. Defusing a bomb by clustering it with at least one multiplier piece of the same color causes all pieces of the same color as the bomb to instantly clear from the board.

Good luck & have fun!

Finally found this game again!

I used to play Hexic HD all of the time on Xbox 360. Much to the confusion of my friends when they would all be playing Halo 3 or CoD. I loved it and tried hard to get all of the achievements.

Anytime I ask people about it they seem to not know what I’m talking about. I’m glad I finally decided to search the App Store and even more so that I found it!

The controls are a bit finicky, you have to be very precise with your touches but it’s not a difficult game so it doesn’t really affect gameplay at all.

So happy to be able to play this again!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback!

Try using long-touch on the board: it would highlight the hexagons for you that would be rotated on release. You are right, it does not affect the actual gameplay but in timed mode, it could be crucial. Using this method would save that couple of seconds of unnecessary rotation.

Have fun!

Thanks for making this

Only suggestion is to make everything take advantage of the screen space, ie bigger. It feels like it’s 50% smaller than it needs to be, and I agree with other comments this makes it easy to tap on the wrong parts by accident.
