Hexafun is an interesting game. You play on a hexagonal grid, [gee what a surprise, huh?] and the idea is to build up groups or lines of the same colored crystals, when you get a certain amount put together, they will go away leaving you with more room. You can control the size of the grid, the number of crystals needed to complete a set, the number of colors, and the crystals dropped in each turn. 

You can set the game so that the crystals have to be lined up or only touching. You can set it so that you make regular moves or so that any hex that you touch will cause the six surrounding it to rotate, and using the right or left button controls the directions of the spin. There will be crystals to the right of the grid, these are the ones you will get hit with the next turn. You can also create your own rules.

You can play four of the game variations up to a maximum score of 600. The other eight and any you add yourself require registration.

There is big buttons on the top of the game window, so that you don't have to keep going to the file menu. Each variation has a unique name, and the game, with the easier settings is easy enough for the kids to play it, and with the harder variations, stimulating enough for adults. Give it a try.
