Liverpool, United Kingdom, 29th January 2013 – Hexius, the unique puzzle game from Phasic Labs, launches on the Mac App Store today.

It's been a busy time for indie developer Phasic Labs – Hexius Free was launched on the iOS App Store, the Daily Mail (a national UK newspaper) featured another Phasic Labs game, Guide The Light, as their App of the Week, and now Hexius has launched on the Mac App Store!

Hexius is a popular psychedelic action-puzzler for iPhone, iPod, iPad (and now OS X) with 3 fun game modes – over 5 million games of Hexius have been played so far on the iPhone and iPad!

Hexius OS X shares Game Center leaderboards with the iOS version of the game, so you can share scores with your friends, and keep an eye on who is top of the world this week, from any platform.

The Mac version of Hexius has all of the features of the iOS version - you can race the clock in Time Attack and Level Challenge, and if you are looking for something a little less adrenaline pumping, you can take your time in Strategy Mode.
