Windows 8.1 App Watch: Hexoid 3D

Hexoid 3D

Another client of a game arrived on the Windows Store. Hexoid 3D links you to HexGL, which is basically a futuristic racing game. It also basically means you need an active Internet connection to play.

The game resembles classics of the genre like Wipeout and F-Zero, but owning to how it has been developed, it lacks the different maps or game modes of these titles. Hexoid is built on HTML5, JavaScript and WebGL technologies.

The official description:

“Hexoid 3D is a futuristic, fast-paced racing game built by Thibaut Despoulain using HTML5, Javascript and WebGL and a tribute to the original Wipeout and F-Zero series.”

And while the lack of content is notable here — this only comes with a single track to race on — the visuals are stunning. If you can live without the variety, for example there are no human controlled or even computer controlled drivers on the track, the game does offer a good time.

The controls of this free game are simple and easy to pick up, and although not a Universal app, it does offer support for Windows on all types of processors, namely 32-bit, 64-bit and ARM.
