Does the name HexaLines ring any bells to veteran Windows Mobile owners? It should if you are crazy for competitive mobile games. HexaLines was a strategy game that saw players filling up as many paths as possible. Starting from the centre Hexagon, players are tasked with adding more hexagons to expand the available path for his or her colour.
Playing against either AI or friends, the game can get relatively busy on-screen with a number of ways to attack (or be attacked by) the enemy. Rotating the next available hexagon and strategically placing it to either cut off an enemy's flow or pour your own colour into their line is key to survival.
The Windows Mobile version sported 25 in-game achievements, animations, and a tutorial to get the player started with the basics. As one can see from the photo above, HexaLines is currently being developed for Microsoft's Windows and Windows Phone platforms. While no given release date is available for either, we can hope for a Windows 8 and Apollo launch.
Check out the video for a quick demonstration of the Windows Mobile game in action.
