Not mine, but alex made an awesome review on this.
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
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.
In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $2.99 USD. Your purchase comes with a Steam key. You will get access to the following files:

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!
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
More Racial Justice bundle impressions and ranking:
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.
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 >_>
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
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.
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.
