VVVVVV creators (and fellow Irishman) Terry Cavanagh, aka. Distractionware, has officially launched his newest puzzler, which will launch this thursday on iOS platforms.
Super Hexagon, as the name suggests, is an updated version of Hexagon, a puzzler made within a weekend on PC not so long ago (and you can play it right here if you’re so inclined.) This new Super edition improves the visual quality and adds some new game modes, such as Hyper Mode which is not unlike a New Game+ that ramps up the difficulty level once you unlock it.
As Terry mentions on his blog, ‘I’m really proud of this game – although I’ve only been working on it for about four months, it feels like I’ve been subconsciously working on it much, much longer than that…’
For the moment, Super Hexagon will be launched on iPhone and iPad, though Terry does suggest he may bring it to other platforms at a later date, including PC and Mac, maybe even Android! I’d love to suggest 3DS, since VVVVV made the journey to Nintendo’s handheld not too long ago, but only time will tell.
Funnily enough, some lucky gamers were surprised to find the game available on the App Store earlier today when the game was accidentally launch a little too soon. It’s since been pulled down just for now, until all the last minute details such as a new trailer and review codes (can we have one?) are ready to go. But the wait won’t be long. Super Hexagon will release this Thursday, September 6th worldwide with a special launch price of $0.99c, which will later bump up to the standard price of $2.99, so get in quick!
