It seems that the credo of a lot of new mobile games these days is simple is the new hard. Games that are easy to explain and understand (some even minimalist) are suddenly extremely difficult to play. But hey, we're not really complaining because if all games were easy to play, then it would be boring.
Entering the realm of these types of games is Hex:99, an action game that feels like an endless runner at times. The objective of the game is to not let your silver hexagon ball die. But the developer assures you that you will be "dying very often". And they admit that only 3% of those who start playing the game will actually finish it. So why even bother? Well, if you're the type who relishes challenges and wants to challenge that percentage, then you definitely will want to.
It is easy to play the game on paper, as the controls are pretty simple. The music will actually keep you in the mood as it is fast-paced and highly energetic. The visuals, while simple and minimalist, are actually pretty well made and adds to the appeal of the game. But make no mistake, this twitch-controlled running game is still pretty difficult, and getting through the checkpoints and zones until you reach 1999 is really challenging.
Hex:99 is available to download for free from the Google Play Store. There are some in-app purchases so make sure your permissions are protected so that no unwanted or unnecessary purchases can be made from your device. We can't guarantee that you won't buy lives or bonus items just to be able to finish this game.
