Hexaline is another perfect example of how Microgaming are the masters of merging puzzle games with slots. This particular puzzler takes its inspiration from the timeless board game classic Connect Four, but takes the game’s basic premise into a whole new dimension.
In Hexaline, multicoloured hexagons drop down down to fill spaces in a grid. The name of the game is to complete a line of adjacent hex shapes of the same colour. Any symbols that create a line then disappear and the space they occupied is filled up with new pieces which cascade down from the top of the screen allowing you to score multiple times from a single spin. If any of these new pieces also complete a line they too be replaced, and so it goes, until you can create no more new lines and you spin again.
Add to this a generous sprinkle of Wild symbols and the opportunities for multiple lines and combos increases. Land three Bonus symbols, meanwhile, to launch the Bonus round. The Bonus game adds even more puzzlement to the proceedings as you look to gather gold stars while navigating arrow-marked hexes which aim to guide you on your way. But watch out for X-marked hexes as they will terminate the bonus round.
In addition to its gripping gameplay, Hexaline looks and sounds fantastic; with funky electro background music, bright and colourful graphics and an overall retro, 80s-future feel complete with neon Tron-style visuals. Fans looking for more puzzling action should also check out Microgaming’s other puzzle-based slots such as Triangulation, Four by Four and Germinator – all of which are available to play here at Dukes Casino.
