Super Hexagon is probably best described by the names of the game's difficulty levels. At the beginning of the game, we have access to "hard", "harder", and "the hardest", and to unlock the next one, you must survive on each of the previously mentioned for a full minute. The last three levels also require us to survive 60 seconds, so we can quickly calculate that 360 seconds is theoretically enough to complete the entire game. Six minutes-spread out over dozens of hours of attempts, training reflexes, and learning from one's mistakes.

The very premise of the gameplay is very simple. We control a small triangle and have to jump between the walls of the hexagon, which we cling to while avoiding the shapes approaching us at breakneck speed. Dead simple. Easy to understand. Damn difficult to perform. And incredibly exciting.
