Description

UPDATE: Next release will include in-game tutorial/help.

Hexile is a UNIQUE fast-paced, fun, yet surprisingly challenging tile-tapping casual game.

Heralded as a truly original casual game for the iPhone, Hexile will wrap you in immersive cinematic music, stunning retro-futurist graphics, and the tile-busting, casual-gaming you love.

Hexile is all about tapping numbers in ascending or descending order to clear a board. For example, if you're on "3", you can hit a "2" or a "4". It starts out simple, and gets a lot more complex.

The gameplay in Hexile is unique, but similar to Trism, FLIP, reMovem, and Bejeweled.

Features / Game Play

-

With 62 levels per game, there are over 620 playable levels to enjoy.

Four unlockable, unique powerups.

Three changing, cinematic soundtracks

High Score tracking.

Vivid, awesome "1920 GasLamp Journal" design.

High quality, rich sound effects.

To Play:

Tap tiles (stones) in ascending or descending order. Clear the board in time to continue.

Specials are deployed by HOLDING the instrument panel button in and then hitting a tile.

Audio Suggestion:

Much of the in-game feedback (like igniting a Sparker or hitting the wrong tile) is audio based, so this game is most fun when played with the volume cranked.

Besides, the game's sound FX and music are definitely worthy of headphones/surround speakers!

Summary

-

Trapped in an archeological dig site, you face a sequence of stone puzzles that you must overcome to escape.

Break tiles in ascending or descending order - Use specials like the "Sparker" and "BioTox" to decimate anything in your way!

Perfect puzzle game!

:
First of all this game has a nice presentation: top-notch graphics, music and sound. I just wish to see less system message box (e.g. the one displayed when you lose a level) and more a seemly interface that matches the game theme.

This is a nice pick up and play puzzle game for two simple and welcome reasons: it has a simple gameplay (you eliminate numbers in descending/ascending order) and you can always continue from where you left, even if you lose.

Basically you can enjoy and try to beat the 620 levels without the stress to start from level/stage 1 again. That's an awesome approach when you need a game to kill some free time. Excellent!

The first stage is easy so you have a chance to understand the game. Nice.

But when you advance the game starts to get a bit complicated (in a good way) and time is more than precious. The result: you have to use some strategy based on your first look of the board level and don't waste any second.

When things get tough then you can start to use the power-ups to help you win the level. Later levels introduces more power-ups like the "Time Dilator" and the "BioTox" bomb.

Usually I feel that most of the games should add something to the gameplay but this time I really don't feel it. This game has a nice approach that makes you enjoy all levels without worrying about lose all your effort just because you didn't win a stage.

However this game needs some refinements like an in game tutorial (just a web one right now) and a way to play in both landscape orientations. Those are minor things that are not enough to hold anyone from trying it.

Finally, just a small request: statistics. It'd be nice to check how many levels were played, how many power-ups were used, winnings/losses (level) and so on.

5/5 for me that love puzzle games more than any other genre.
