Joe is in a bit of trouble, because he’s found himself transported to a bright and colorful dimension that wants him dead.
The world of Hexes is made up of hexagonal platforms that disappear underneath your feet. You have to keep moving and jump all the way up the rapidly disappearing spiral staircase until you reach the top.
To compound Joe’s already frazzled nerves, every time he makes it to the top, he’s teleported right back down to where he started. And — let’s not tell him this — this happens again… and again… and again…
Essentially, this is Joe’s life now. A life of constant jumping and running.
Good luck, Joe.
Play the game
How is this different from regular Hexes?
To make Joe’s life more interesting, we’ve introduced a series of random powerups. Or, well, let’s be honest, most of them are powerdowns.
In the top right corner, you’ll notice a shenanigan timer:
It starts at 10 and counts down. When it reaches 0, one of five shenanigans will activate. We won’t tell you what they are — that’s all part of the joy of discovery.
Some of them will help you — if you know how to take advantage of them — and some… well…
Okay, but how do I win those sweet $1000?
The rules are simple: Make it to the top as many times as you can.
The game records your score between plays. So even if you quit and come back later, your score will remain. That means you don’t have to sit there and grind a single session for hours and hours. You can quit and rest assured that your current score will still be there waiting for you, like a lovesick, needy little puppy, when you come back.
In fact, to encourage you to take a break — and discourage you from sniping the top position at the last second (you know who you are) — the game will automatically quit every 10 wins and update your leaderboard position. Don’t worry, you can just hit “play again” and carry on for as long as you want.
The challenge will run from Monday, May 16, 2022 @ 12pm CEST to Monday, May 23, 2022 @ 12pm CEST.
At the stroke of 12 noon on the 23rd, the five top leaderboard holders will enter a random draw to win $1000.
What about glitches/cheats/exploits?
Some of the shenanigans lend themselves to obvious exploits. Those are fair… as long as you’re still playing the game normally.
If you find a game-breaking glitch, or if you use cheats (e.g. third-party intervention), or even if we just see a very suspicious-looking high score, then we’re not going to count your score.
It’s our discretion whether to disqualify you or not. Them’s the breaks.
How do I claim my prize?
For the minor inconvenience that is the $1000 prize, we need the following information (if you’re a non-Danish citizen):
- Your bank’s name
- Your own full name and address
- IBAN no.
- SWIFT code
- A poem about why hexagons are superior to every other shape in existence*
