I don't understand what the difference between this and the first game is. How can it be single player and include enemies if there's no AI?

I didn't find many details on the game but it's a puzzle variation of Neuroshima Hex.

Each puzzle starts with a scenario to explain whats going on and pieces already laid out. Your goal is to solve each puzzle by doing damage to the enemy HQ(s) like usual but I have no idea about how many rounds you are given, etc.

I don't know anyone that got a prerelease version so that's as much as I know

I'll be more than happy to explain.

It's a a set of 100 scenarios where you have to take one turn, position your tiles and then the battle starts! Scenarios are very tricky, so it may sound easy, but sometimes it takes a lot of planing to solve.

And because one image is worth thousand words here's a video trailer showing how this game looks like:

Default Game Impressions

If you like Neuroshima Hex even a little, and it is outstanding so you should, this is for you. It is a series of puzzle scenarios that take mere seconds to play through each... if you grok the answers. They get harder and eventually you will sweat some neurons working them out.

The chess puzzle analogy is very apt. Just like and game it is based on, great art, graphics, sound and execution. Plays great on iphone, ipod and ipad. Runs great on older devices. I couldn't be more pleased.

I am a little confused by making this a stand-alone app and not an expansion to NH. But I guess new apps get press attention and updates to older ones not so much.

At first I thought this was a lite version of sorts. Given that this is a stand-alone app, I'm buyin'.

Default Insta-buy!

Got it the second it was out, I'm really glad about this release. I love the puzzle aspects of this one, the graphical style (with a new background for the map... thanks!), the fact that they took the time to write short introductions for the levels... but more than ever, as I'm still pretty new to Neuroshima Hex, I can already see how this is going to improve my gameplay and my tactics during real Neuroshima Hex! matches afterward. Really excited about that!

Highly recommended.

Only thing that I would've loved to see with this release is a leaderboard of some sort on Game Center... I'd like to know how I'm doing compared to other players. Basically, the number of Hex-Aches solved. While the achievements are great, it only allows you to compare how you're doing between you and your friends... so it's quite different for me.
