Description

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.

Please note that World of Hex makes use of iCloud and as such, requires you to be logged into iCloud on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.

Game Story:
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.

What’s New

Version 4.1

This version addresses a number of quirks in the display of text on some devices where the text was incomplete. It also attempts to improve the initial tutorial when you first start playing.

My thanks to those individuals in the wonderful Apple Arcade community that have helped me identify these issues. World of Hex isn't a part of that service, however there are a lot of great games there you might like to try out in between your bouts of solar system conquest.

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.

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.

I Like Where Their Head Is At

This game has a simple and fascinating concept with a unique puzzle design and a seemingly endless playtime for planetary domination. This game is close to being 5 stars, and I would highly recommend this to all my friends if not for a few in game nuances. There could be some more explanation for things that happen in the game that would be nice. The player is told if a tile is locked or too heavily populated, but the player does not know how long until the tile will be available again. The scoreboard and leaderboard are good trackers, but it’s vague, and doesn’t show things like how many players are on each team or how many tiles each person has taken. This is still a fun game, and great way to fill time, but it feels more like a single player campaign for domination than a multiplayer team game that could feel more immersive. I’m sure there are other things to be fixed, and it’s isn’t easy, but I think this game could be much better with a few tweaks, and it would pay off.

Great game but confusing

The game itself it self explanatory you use the hex’s to take over territory but getting down to attacking is very confusing how do you know where exactly to place sometimes I place and it just skips my turn a more in depth tutorial is needed urgently

Developer Response ,

Hi there and thanks for playing. Yes, it is possible to make a move that is immediately overwhelmed by the opposing forces, and as you've highlighted, the game doesn't explain what has happened. I've added this as something to fix. Thank you.
