Super Hexagon is a minimal action game by Terry Cavanagh, with music by Chipzel.

Important facts about Hexagons:

  • Hexagons are first order permutohedrons: The vertices of a hexagon can be formed by permuting the coordinates of the vector (1, 2, 3).
  • The north pole of the planet Saturn has a hexagonal storm cloud pattern with 8,600 mile long sides, larger than the diameter of Earth.
  • Though hexagon may appear to be a difficult word to rhyme, there are actually dozens of words that rhyme with it. For example: Autobahn, decagon, decathlon, electron, Kyrgzstan, Lebanon, leprechaun and marathon.

the macOS version of the game is still 32-bit, 32 bit programs have been unsupported since macOS Catalina. can you please update the game? i know the steam release is 64 bit, so you definitely already have the binaries ready to go


I have it on my 3ds for free:)))))))))

the homebrew port called super haxagon?




although its not really the game for free, its a fan remake with less in it

Why windows is 25MB

when Android is 150Mb????

its kind of weird disproportion xD

OHHH windows is zipped...

To counter all the below demands for Mac 64 bit, thank you for keeping an older version of the game on this page; I use an old MacBook running High Sierra, and love finding classics like this that will still run on my hardware.


I got that game for free on my 3ds


Could you update the mac version to 64bit? :)


Add the updated Windows version please.  I know it's only a few dollars.  But I prefer not to buy the same game multiple times.

I've always loved this game on PC but really wanted to play it on Android. This had been impossible, for me, due to the microstutters from the announcer's audio. I am so glad the Android version appears to have been updated; it now looks beautiful and is much smoother. Thanks Terry and Ethan! Totally rocking my Pixel6/Android12.

The only problem is the music sometimes doesn't play on the Hexagoner level. Force closing and restarting seems to fix.


Seems like the Linux version is borked, I can't install it through the Itch client...


please update mac version to 64bit , its not compatible on newer macos. ty


I still have nightmares about this game and I haven't played it in years. Well done.


Please update macOS to 64bit. 32 bit is not suported from last few good years. Now all macs will going to arm64.


Especially since there's already a 64-bit Mac App Store version.

it is arm64 version for apple m1 onthe app store. Anyway author nned to update this download section. This game come from 2015.

Sill broken on Android 10. Won't give me an error message, just "there was a problem running the package"


Mac version is not compatible with latest macOS. Any plans on updating?

Looks like the Android version here is "v2.0.190", is there any chance we can get an updated APK to match v2.4.5 on the play store?




Any chance of updating the Mac version to 64 bit so it's compatible on newer devices?

New android version works great on android 11, love the improved input latency. Would love to see sound/music toggles and an exit button on the main menu, if possible.

wah 143mb instead of 25mb for the apk version
 bloated software to fill the google play restrictions ?

Music takes up 124mb of the new apk (due to being in WAV format). Seems to be intentional, judging by the Play Store description.

okay it all make sense maybe to be best experienced with headphones then 


That's odd. Phones have the worst audio fidelity of the bunch, it only makes sense to create a smaller package, if anything...

Hey um the game seems to have become broken on android plz fix

love the game otherwise


ok, done!

sweet thanks!!

Hey there! I got this game on a Humble Bundle a long while ago. I see by the comments that the game has got a fix for newer devices. Can you also upload the fixed version there?


New version is already uploaded on Humble! If you don't have access to the latest version there, contact them for support!

Thanks, Terry.

Not mine, but alex made an awesome review on this. 

I never knew you created Super Hexagon, and I never thought I'd see the developer of Super Hexagon


So, I got this game years ago on Steam, and getting it in the Racial Justice bundle...Perfection. I love having it on android now. This game has gotten me out of many a panic attacks!


Yes i got it too but it's still showing to pay the price. How can i download?


Any chance for a Catalina compatibility update?


One of those games that just feels great to play.


Another game that probably doesnt need a lot of introduction. Its a great hardcore highscore game with a pumping soundtrack and hypnotizing gameplay for which you need to direct the little triangle at the middle of the screen to go through the holes of the walls coming at you. The game has some cool ideas for the randomly generated patterns and it WILL be a good challenge if you decide to try to master it. It is also pretty unique as far as highscore games in that most peoples first try wont even pass 5 seconds. The game is certainly up front about its difficulty. Great little time waster. 4/5

I bought this game in the racial justice bundle, and i have two questions: I read the page and it apparentally comes with a steam key? where do i get it?
And when i launch the game either from the itch launcher or just from the .zip file, the UI is completely broken. 
can anyone help?


Steam keys were not given out for games in this bundle, even if they may say do so in the game pages. 

And I don't know about your 2nd question. Sorry.


Alright, thanks for the info. Fixed the UI problem by switching to an another account on my PC.


Had this game on my iPhone years ago and am loving it even more on PC. So much fun! Thank you to the developer for including it in the bundle :) 


This game is awesome !!


Note that if you use the itch.io desktop app on Linux, it doesn't seem to include the 2016 latest patch for Super Hexagon. Check the CREDITS first screen - should say "PORT BY ETHAN LEE" if it's the latest version. If it doesn't say that, download and install the linux-01082016.tar.gz patch from http://www.flibitijibibo.com/patch/superhexagon/ (there's a Patch.README.txt at that URL which gives a changelog and instructions). You basically extract the .tar.gz inside the ~/.config/itch/apps/super-hexagon/data dir.


Whats the difference between the two?

And the itch.io website hasn't updated since 2015 (at least for the Racial Justice Bundle)


According to the changelog: 

	- SDL2 2.0.4, OpenAL Soft 1.17.1
	- Default to fullscreen on first start
	- Added myself to the credits, because everyone else is doing it >_>

Thats nothing big...... right?


It's nothing too big, I suppose, but I do think it is important to credit the guy who ported it to Linux! 


Beat it in two hours, amazing game, i love it.

Beat this in two hours

What?! How are you so skilled in the ways of the hexagon


I have played this game before, i just play a bunch of endurance rage games in general. I beat it two times before beating it in two hours.

loved this on Android. Thanks for making it.

do-do-do-do do, do, do-do-do-do do, do, do-do-do-d-- game over. begin! do-do-do-do do, do...

Completed this game ages ago, but I keep coming back just because the game's so darn fun and the music's so good.


So good.


Could you please update this game to have a 64-bit architecture so it's compatible with macOS Catalina (and future versions of macOS)? Thank you


Hello, just purchased this game as part of the bundle for racial equality. it doesn't seem to work with latest MacOS, is there any plan for an update?

most MacOS games aren't built with Catalina in mind, if you can find a way to downgrade to High Sierra you'll have a much easier time with gaming.  Sadly I haven't looked into a way to do so, I just never switched over, but there's probably a way to do it posted somewhere online!



A challenging, but very fun game

My BGE. Would recommend playing it on mobile.
