The game features is in “2.5D”, Meaning it has 2D hand-drawn character sprites and 3D modeled levels. The gamefollows Scrooge McDuck who travels the world in search of treasures to further increase his fortune.
This one is worth checking out for nostalgia alone.
Hexic 2 is the sequel to the puzzle game Hexic, obviously…Hexic 2 is a tile-matching puzzle game developed by Carbonated Games. The player has to rotate hexagonal tiles to create certain patterns. The game came from the mind of Alexey Pajitnov, best known as the creator of Tetris. Not really much else to say on the game.
