In Super Hexagon, a lot of "patterns" appear. Knowing these patterns is quite important to clear levels in Super Hexagon, because when you see some patterns you know, you can predict what will come next.
Knowing patterns may not be significant in Hexagon and Hexagoner (because they are quite slow and you can see the whole thing; you may remember some tricky patterns and beat the levels), but it is significant in Hexagonest and becomes very important in Hyper Hexagonest.
First, before begin the guide, I will define some words.
is the thing you're controlling.
is a part of sides of a hexagon(, pentagon, or square) which you should avoid through it's hole(s).
is a collection of parts (or a whirlpool) which appears many times.
A C-shaped part
is most abundant part in Super Hexagon. It's the shape which only one sides of polygon is not blocked.1 unit
is the amount how much you rotate to move the pointer from a side to a neighboring side.I considered using "ortho", "meta", and "para" to describe 1, 2, and 3 units.R
= 1 unit CW, and L
= 1 unit CCW. M
is either R or L.
2R = 2 unit CW, where RR is two 1 unit CW movement.
Basic facts about each level
There are three basic levels, Hexagon, Hexagoner, and Hexagonest, which difficulties are (resp.) Hard, Harder, and Hardest.
Every basic levels last 60 seconds, and after 60 seconds, game continues on Hyper mode.
A hyper mode lasts 120 seconds (except Hyper Hexagonest). In Hyper Hexagon, after 60 seconds, background turns from blue to red (everything else are same), and after 120 seconds, game continues on Hyper Hexagoner. In Hyper Hexagoner, after 60 seconds, colors are reversed (also everything else are same), and after 120 seconds, game continues on Hyper Hexagonest. In Hyper Hexagonest, after 60 seconds, the black-white mode appears, which is very different from Hyper Hexagonest, and lasts forever (I played it for over two minutes and nothing changed).
Let's look at Hexagon first.
