If you're a fan of puzzle games and are bored of the same old formats then Hexxagon Labs may make for a refreshing change.
Kind-of an Othello with hexagons, Hexxagon Labs sees you tackle a series of mind-boggling quests over a series of complex levels. The aim of the game is to fill as many of the spaces on the board as possible by moving around strategically and capturing enemy pieces.
It's pretty straightforward to get a grasp of the rules of Hexxagon Labs if you've played Othello before, but if you haven't then there are a few tutorial levels to help you on your way. It's all great fun, and the inclusion of scientific facts along the way helps add to the enjoyment factor.
Hexxagon Labs is well presented - the graphics are nice and colorful and the sounds are chirpy if not a little annoying. The only real problem with the game is that there just aren't enough levels, and the control system is slightly fiddly.
On the whole though, Hexxagon Labs provides a fun way to kill some time.
