If you like making your head hurt with puzzles be sure to check out Crypto Hex. It has a nice visual style, simple but challenging gameplay and it confused me quite quickly.

Essentially you need to fill up a bunch of hexes, enough to make the exit to complete each puzzle.

I'm not sure if the puzzles are clever, or if I'm dumb, but it really didn't take me long to get stuck. I'm usually pretty horrific at puzzle games, so it's probably my issue.

I like the idea of the game, and it does make you think. Go check it out and tell me what you think to it.

I’ll try the demo, thanks ;)

Edit: ok, so the good news is, it works (it’s a java game but the author included the JRE). But the tutorial doesn’t explain anything…
