HexTris brings a refreshing twist on the most popular block-stacking, puzzle-solving arcade game ever created, and it does so in a new, hexagonal format. If you are used to playing Tetris, then this game might catch you off-guard, since the core mechanic is quite different. You’ve probably never played a game quite like this one before.
To play HexTris, you need to rotate the hexagon on your screen to catch the blocks that fall from above in order to make color combinations and clear the rows, just like you do in Tetris. If you are not able to do that, the blocks will continue to stack atop one another and will grow in the outer area of the gray hexagon, causing you to lose.
The blocks start on the edge of the screen and fall toward the inner, blue hexagon. The goal of the game is to stop the blocks from stacking so high that they reach outside of the gray hexagon area. Connect three or more blocks of the same color, and they will vanish, causing the blocks above them to slide down.
Destroying several block series awards you with combos, which have durations that are indicated by a shrinking outline around the outer hexagon.
