Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Hextris is an excellent Tetris clone that introduces hexagonal (beehive-shaped) blocks as the name suggests. The edges of the playing area are also hexagonal-shaped to fit the blocks. The game is more difficult as a result, since there are many more exposed edges that must fit with other tiles - five as opposed to three in a normal Tetris game. If you enjoy challenging Tetris clones, Hextris is definitely a must-play, even though this PC version is quite bare-bones with no pretty backgrounds or nice soundtrack. Recommended for die-hard fans - as well as anyone who likes difficult reflex-oriented puzzlers..min
