Xbox Live puzzle game Hexic arrives on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 devices

Microsoft Studios has brought the classic puzzle game of Hexic to Windows Phone devices and Windows 8 devices. The game brings 100 challenging levels of geometric goodness in a new touch-friendly experience. Plus it's free!

The game features all new chain combos with swipe-and-match gameplay and mechanics originally designed by Alexey Pajitnov, creator of the legendary puzzle game Tetris. We've seen Hexic before as a Xbox Live title for Windows Phone 7 and the latest version looks to build upon the appeal of the previous.

All you need to do is create clusters of same-color hexagons to clear them from the board. But there are new touch controls and adventures as you go up against encryption cells, corruption clusters, mysterious dark fragments, and viral vectors.

The game also offers new boosts and assists that will send your scores soaring. It allows you to compare and compete for high scores with friends on level-by-level leaderboards.

You can also connect Hexic to Facebook and share your progress with your friends. While you play a level on your Windows Phone, you can pick from where you left off on your Windows 8 device.

Hexic is an addictive game as you spin and swipe your way through challenging levels. It is Xbox LIVE enabled, so the achievement hunters would find another reason to download and give this free game a whirl.

Download Hexic for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store or for your Windows 8 devices from the Windows Store.

Give it a spin, and let us know if you have what it takes to save Hexic?

Thanks, everyone, for the tip!
