I was thrilled to find this game for the iPhone because I had it way back when it was a DOS game for the PC. It is a very challenging game, kind of a mix of checkers and Othello. This app could use some more development for the iPhone, though. Response is a little sluggish. (OS 4) The controls need to be better. The control is by touching the cell you want to move into, but the cells are too small on the iPhone, so it is very easy to touch the wrong cell by mistake. It would probably work better on the iPad, just because the screen is bigger. The AI is unrelenting on the medium setting, so there is no room for mistake. There are no "extras" on this app. You can't choose which color you want your piece to be. No option to edit the playfield. They don't have the little bumble bee lightbulb graphic that made the original so cute. The sound is very basic. No sound options, not even on / off. These don't matter to the game play, but really, they could have put a little more detail into it. If you want a challenging game that is a mix of checkers and othello and you have small fingers, you'll like this.

If you like the original pc Hexxagon you will like this game. The AI, controls and sound are great!

I used to love this game on my PC. Now I can enjoy it on my ipod.

I think this is very faithful to the original, and better in that the piece conversion effects match their respective pieces (i.e. the green pieces emit green lightning and the blue pieces emit blue lasers while in the original, the red pieces shot out blue fluid and the blue pieces shot out red lightning and I assume that that was a programming oversight.)

This is definitely the old Hexxagon game we love, but the controls lag quite a bit. It takes at least a full second after tapping the screen for anything to happen. If that gets fixed...5-star game.

I loved the original Hexxagon, but this version is very laggy and the graphics are pretty bad. The graphics looked smoother on my old DOS PC over 20 years ago. It needs work.

Would give it 5star if it moved faster

Great game, very challenging in the expert level, even more so when the computer decides to cheat. I've seen the computer change one of my pieces to one of its in certain situations when there are only 2 open slots. Please fix!! Otherwise 5 stars. Reason for slow gameplay people are complaining about is so you have time to change your pick if you accidentally picked the wrong spot.

I wish there was an option to turn the sound off or to be able to listen to music OVER the sound. There doesn't seem to be any settings or options---would be even better if there were.

Good fun game. It's better to play vs. Human because that way it's not as hard. (depending on who you are playing against) it's also always random Vs. Human player. But playing against the computer it is almost impossible to win.
