Hexa Turn is minimalistic turn-based puzzle game, with the simple goal of preventing the triangle piece from reaching one of the squares. You do this by turning the hexes into impasses by clicking on them. The computer AI basically takes turns after your turn each time. The AI will always try to reach its goal by the shortest path possible.

The game has an interactive tutorial built-in to get you started. Also, during the game, when a new element gets introduced, the game offers a brief explanation to teach it to you.

During each level, you are able to undo your move if you have made a mistake. You can go back as far as you feel the need to. I like that so you don’t have to restart a level completely.

Sometimes you can use a double turn if this is available, you choose the option and this basically skips the computer’s next turn, giving you two in a row. (In later levels, the triangle can sometimes have two turns as well, also there are times when you are facing more than a single triangle.)

Also you can use a bonus turn on certain levels, but the game informs you that you can do all levels without those bonus turns. (So if you get stuck when this is available, you can use it as a crutch, as long as you know there are better solutions out there.)

Some cells are white and they cannot be turned to block the triangle. You will get more options and obstacles later in the game. For example, you can choose to freeze the triangle piece for 1 turn.

The game contains 96 levels total, and offers a good learning curve. You have to think a lot upfront. The levels have enough variation to keep you entertained.

The graphics are very simple like many minimalistic games, but that is fine. The sound effect are also minimal.

The game cannot be played 100% on full screen. You end up with some black borders. This is because the game is a mobile port.

There are some spelling errors in the game. I don’t mind this at all, but some people might find it irritating.

I really like this puzzle game. It has a low price and I would definitely recommend to people who like puzzles and a challenge. It definitely has enough content to justify its price.
