Hexio is a puzzle game with an easy pace and relaxing music. Like so many casual games, it is easy to play but hard to master. The objective is to connect hexagons by drawing a line through them. You can only connect hexagons of the same colour. It's made harder because some hexagons can only have one connection while others can have two or three.
As the levels progress, you have to really rack your brains to use up all the connections as well as the anchor points (used to route your connections). If you make a mistake, you can swipe across a connection point to erase it. There are 64 puzzles and you can play all of them for free. If you get stuck, you can use a hint (5 hints are free).
The developers also have a consumer-centric approach to ads. You can choose whether you want targeted ads, basic ads or pay for the ad-free version. If you play the ad-supported version, you may also run out of hints. The ad-free version (with unlimited hints) is priced at Rs 160.
