The object of the game is much the same as with tetris, only the frame and the falling objects are hexagons. You have to slot the coloured pieces together making rows, which disappear once they are complete, the game ends if the stack of pieces reaches the celling.
Hexagons are hard to stack, so the game is more challenging than other games of its type, but it gets easier with practice. The game play gets rapidly challenging, as you make mistakes or run out of room and to make it worse, the objects you get are often the most useless for the job, plus it seems as if they fall at an increasingly faster rate. A score is kept based on how many lines you complete. Your current score and the highest score can be viewed on the bottom of the window, so you can try to match or beat your best score or that of a friend.
