The Power of Six?
« on: December 15, 2012, 03:08:22 PM »
Am I the only one who thinks Super Hexagon and VVVVVV have quite a few things in common?

To begin with, "Super Gravitron" - "Super Hexagon".

Second, there is the number 6.
VVVVVV: Six crew members, six colors, six levels, etc..
Super Hexagon: Six-edged polygon, six stages (point, line, triangle, etc.), six difficulty levels.

Maybe 6 is Terry's lucky number. ;)

And actually, I wouldn't be surprised if both games took part in the same universe.

Don't forget the part where Hexagonest's background colors correspond to the VVVVVV crew member colors.

I had noticed that and it's creepy.

And of course, both are in a similar retro style and both are ungodly hard
