    Youtube Teaser Video

    Quick Teaser for HEXETERA gameplay. Hope you all like it :)

  6. Looks kind of like a slightly different twist on Tetris/Columns-type gameplay. Could be interesting but being the jaded gamer that I am I'll await some impressions. :) (Haven't tried the above code but I guarantee someone snagged it. Codes posted publicly have a shelf life of around two-thirds of a second around here. :D)

    Kind of like Trism meets Tetris. I love the colors!
  12. Thanks to the dev for the code. I had a go at this. I went in under the impression that it was basically a hexagonal Tetris or Columns, and realistically that's more or less what it is -- kind of a mashup of the two played on a hexagonal board, but with a few extras thrown in.

    Gameplay is pretty self-explanatory, and it uses swipe and tap gestures to play (left/right to move the piece, down to guide the piece down, tap to rotate) but the way they're implemented is actually very effective and intuitive, which made playing the game quite smooth, so kudos on the control scheme. Graphically it's quite polished; it's obvious a lot of time was spent burnishing the visuals and interstitial effects, and the effort wasn't wasted.

    Most of the challenge comes from altering your approach from thinking lines to thinking hexagons, which is a little more challenging than you might think, especially when multicoloured pieces come into play.

    I'll fully grant that it's a very well-produced game on all sides, from the visuals to the sound to the controls; I find absolutely nothing to complain about here. The gameplay itself however still feels very Tetris-like, albeit skewed 45°. A very good Tetris-style game, to be sure, and it does have a few variations in gameplay, but it isn't quite enough to get away from Pajintov's legacy. However I'm told that this is just version 1.0 and there's more to come, so it will be interesting to see where they ultimately take things.

    Will leave a review on the App Store later today, but just wanted to say the game is really good. I enjoyed the twist on the age-old Tetris games with the hexagons. The colors and controls are pitch perfect and it's nice that there's a speed control. Overall, a well-polished game for those looking for something a little bit different and more challenging than Tetris.

    Promo Codes

    Please note Promo Codes given to us can only be redeemed by the US Appstore. Australia, Germany, Canada and others missing out all the fun :(

    I believe this is true for all games, correct?

  19. You are correct unfortunately; other countries can't even give out promo codes for use in their own country's App Store. Been almost two years now since Apple updated the App Store to allow them yet no support for other countries. Just the US. :p

    Let's start trending

    Although our first experience with the App Store, we feel the saturation in the iOS market.

    Its almost as if 50 Promo codes are no longer enough to get the curtains raised for every decent app.

    We should all maybe get together a day or two (covering all timezones) and trend #MorePromoCodes to get Apple's attention on Twitter.

    Any seconds to that?
