Day 51: Hexothermic

I’m purchasing an Xbox Live Indie Game every day, seeking out the quality titles that got lost in the shuffle and no longer appear in the top 50 downloads. Today is day #51, and today’s game is “Hexothermic”.

Hexothermic offers chain-reaction-based puzzle gameplay. You introduce electrons to a grid of unstable atoms, hoping to create a chain reaction to clear the board. For 240 Microsoft Points, you get four modes of play (marathon, timed, puzzle, and survival) and a lot of play value.

The soundtrack is partly generated by player action, with actions and reactions triggering guitar chords, creating a unique ambiance. Any puzzle gamer should at least consider the trial, this game is not the same-old, same-old.
