You may remember me saying that I feel Neuroshima Hex is the best boardgame port to iOS devices, like, ever. It’s made the physical game obsolete. It remains in my regular rotation and I try to get a few games in per week. I do so love me some Hex.
There’s a new army in town and its name is the Steel Police. Watch the vid for a taste. The 2.3 update also includes support for iPhone 5 and iOS 6 and “improved AI” which I hope isn’t the case because the Hard level kicks my teeth in on a regular basis.
Full Price list is as follows:
Neuroshima Hex $2.99 (normally $4.99)
The Bundle of Five Armies $3,99 (normally 7,99)
New York army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
Neojungle army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
Smart army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
Vegas army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
new Steel Police army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
Worth every penny.

I wonder if the game is a bit more stable on the online portion. I was so excited when online multi-player was implemented and then well….it was terrible. This and Carcassonne are the best board game transfers to iOS in my opinion. Great stuff, haven’t touched my physical copy since this was released.
This game just blasted itself back into my regular game folder.
On one podcast you described Hex as ‘a knife fight in a phone booth’ and man, were you spot on. It’s fast, brutal and over all too soon if you’re not paying attention. I added Steel Police yesterday, and I think it’s worth pointing out that their HQ’s special ability, Net of Steel, can be used on -any- enemy tile, not just adjacent ones like every other army’s HQ. This may not seem like much of a difference, but can be a huge game changer, especially if your enemy’s attack hinges on one powerful unit or module.
Yum. Love me some Hex. Bill, dude, we still haven’t played. I see how it is.
Dont take it personally
It’s because I say ‘dude’, isn’t it?
