148Apps Review: HexaLex

HexaLex is familiar yet different to the word games you know and love. It is at its core similar to Scrabble-derived word games played on boards, but the unique shape of the board creates some new wrinkles. The main one is that you can form a pair of two-letter letter junk words in the course of making a legitimate play, which is put in place because of the complexities that the hexagonal board brings – you have so many more tiles touching, so some leeway was necessary to allow the game to flow. Beyond that, other tweaks like varying word values and bonuses for using 5, 6 or 7 of your tiles exist, to alter your usual word game strategies.

The story is too old to be commented.
