The Game

Hexxagon is an animated game of strategy, loaded with options, in which it is your task to take over as much of the world, ah, board as your opponent will allow, whether your opponent is another mere human or our resident noid of unflinching logic, the dauntless CRANIAC.

CRANIAC, represented by a single light bulb, will happily defeat you in any one of three modes. Choose your poison, and don't be taken in by the apparent simplicity of CRANIAC'S lightbulb facade, his glasses or his bow tie; he'll lure you in and hit you with the "kill"owatts of brain power that reside in that little icon.

Cower not -- one of your available options is to actually "see" how the little twerp thinks. On the two higher detail levels, CRANIAC displays his moves before he makes them, showing his options with flashing neon green and yellow paths.

On the low detail level, he will counter immediately after you move -- instantaneous annihilation. Again, don't be alarmed, the three modes, "CRANIAC EASY, MEDIUM & HARD," allow you to choose the level of difficulty you take on.

Revenge is sweet; you'll have every opportunity for payback, because when you enter the space next to any of your opponent's pieces, they are transformed into yours. From solid to liquid or liquid to solid, transforming a solid red jewel into a liquid chrome drop requires heat, and heat you'll get in the form of lightning. When a liquid is alchemized into a solid, you'll see a frozen stream of ice particles.

Moves

There are two ways to complete your mission in Hexxagon. You may move one space, represented by a green neon outline, and your game piece is duplicated into that space. When you move two spaces, represented by a yellow neon glow, your gamepiece "jumps" to that space, but is not duplicated.

First click the red or blue arrow that appears each time it is your turn on the piece you want to move. Hexxagon will show you all of your potential moves for that piece, or any of your pieces you click on. The only possible moves are to free spaces, one or two spaces from your current position. You may then move the arrow to one of the allowable spaces indicated by the green and yellow neon glows and click again to move there. Any time you move next to one of your opponent's pieces, enjoy the fireworks!
