"One of the best games on the App Store - great word based game" - tcfairfax
"A very satisfying hexagonal word search maze-like. Highly recommend!" - BookishMatt

The game includes detailed post-game statistics, your all-time stats and an original soundtrack.

Hexiled's four different modes offer something for everyone. Waiting for a friend or at the coffee shop? ESCAPE games take a couple of minutes (or 15-30 seconds if you're really good!). The morning commute or work break is perfect for SURVIVE's 1-5 minute games, while one last game of EXPLORE before bed is hard to resist. New DISCOVER mode adds something for those wanting an unrushed game, but without the commitment of a full EXPLORE session.
