HexConnect: puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

If you've been following this puzzle app blog, you know that I really like topology puzzle apps. As far as I know, this is the first one that uses a hexagonal grid. About a week ago Tamas Mile, who made HexConnect, sent me a promo code to play his game. Thanks!

HexConnect has 250 'Basic 1' levels and another 250 'Basic 2' levels.  I've done all of the Basic 2 levels. It took me 2 hours, 21 minutes and 28 seconds. I particularly like this time feature. I'm always amazed that people would refuse to pay 1 or 2 dollars for something that would entertain them for 2 hours. But they have no hesitation buying a soda for $2.50 that lasts 20 seconds. Or plunking down $10 to see a movie that may be awful.

HexConnect is not that hard because the hexagonal grid offers more freedom of movement.  Nevertheless, HexConnect is a winner! Feel free to read the list below. If I were you, I'd skip it and just download it.

Oh, I just discovered there's a Leaderboard connection. Of the 923 players, I'm ranked #2. The person who's ahead of me has a much higher score. I think he downloaded the additional levels. And he probably did all the Basic 1 levels.

Key Features
