Hextacy Review

Mar 7, 2011

Hextacy is a match-3 puzzler that has you trying to clear out hexagons from the board by drawing a path between connected pieces of the same color – at least 3 in a row. When you run out of matches, the pieces on the board become unusable for one turn, as new pieces drop on the board. As you make any possible matches with those pieces, then the next set of pieces drop on to the board, the pieces lock into place, and the pieces that were previously locked become unlocked. You continue this until you run out of matches, and have powerups like one that clears out a column, and one that unlocks all locked up blocks to help you out. There are also 2 other modes beisdes the core mode to play – there’s a Hardcore mode that makes you make matches of just 3 pieces, and a Pure mode that limits the use of powerups.
