Hexicon is a word-puzzle game where you complete words to gain control of an area of the map. You take turns to form words to score points but the real challenge is to capture the most tiles within your area. This combination of strategy and literacy is a great incentive to increase your word power.

Play involves selecting a chain of letters to capture tiles in your colour. You can focus on expanding your own territory or go after enemy letter tiles by using them in new words. The more times you use a letter in different words the darker the colour and the harder they are to steal. The result is a competitive word with a novel strategic element.

Our Hexicon Accessibility Report documents 24 accessibility features:
To play the game you tap letters to select them on the board, but it is also possible to drag your finger to select a chain of letters. You do occasionally need to use the Swap Tiles feature that requires you to press and hold one tile and then drag to another tile to swap them. This is rare and is technically not necessary to win (but generally is important).

There are 4 computer players to challenge at different levels of difficulty. The easiest level has a very limited dictionary of simple words and does not make good plays. The hardest level has the full dictionary and often makes the best or close to the best move. You can change the difficulty at the start of a new level.
