Neuroshima Hex App

Portal Games is proud to announce the Neuroshima HEX! mobile app, coming to the iOS App Store and Google Play store in September 2021.

The app is based on the highly acclaimed game Neuroshima Hex! in which players engage in tense battles set in a post-apocalyptic world. The goal of the game is to destroy your enemy’s HQ by placing troops on the hexagonal game board and triggering their abilities. All Factions have their own unique units with distinct mechanics. The order in which units come into play and their placement on the board make each game completely different, resulting in high replay value.

This is Portal Games’s second app for Neuroshima Hex! The first app, released in 2010, garnered rave reviews and was one of the first board game based apps in the iOS App Store, along with the Small World app.

The new Neuroshima HEX! app is completely redesigned and offers improved AI, a solo mode with 3 difficulty levels, and cross platform online gameplay allowing you to play against friends or random opponents regardless of their smartphone’s operating system (Android or iOS).

The new Neuroshima HEX! app initially offers 4 Factions known from the base game: Moloch, Hegemony, Outpost, and Borgo. Other Factions introduced by the expansions will be added in future updates and will unlock automatically, free of charge, to players who purchased them for the original Neuroshima Hex! app.

The Neuroshima HEX! mobile app will be available for purchase at iOS App Store and Google Play store in September 2021. Players who bought the previous edition of the mobile app will be able to download it for free.

    I miss the ability to verify icons and rules during play, that was extremely helpful, especially with expansions and with teaching new players.

    I also miss my other armies and hope that they reload without issue, especially given I was forced to register my account anew.

    This is a great game I have spent many hours teaching new players. It is a game that is easier to play on a device than on the table top because of automated turn order. I’m sure we will love this version as we did the old, as soon as the bugs are worked out.

    I hate to say it, but this new version is inferior. The numbers for the attacks are unnecessary and do not look good. Also, no need for the huge arrows around every tile as it is being placed. Unfortunately the animations are way too juddering and the new sound effects are not satisfying at all. Feels like this update was released prematurely. I would gladly pay for the app and armies again to support this game. I truly hope this app continues to receive updates that refine the playing experience. I used to look forward to playing this game everyday.

    Great that some of the glitches are being removed but it has only been a mild annoyance for me. I don’t seem to be able to replay a game. This is a huge dissadvantage to me. Playing solo and trying to remember what tiles are coming up to find the perfect game is my main challenge. I don’t like the new skin. I find it too fussy and hard to read the numbers. It seems to have updated automatically. Is there a way to get the old one back please?

    YES! Finally!

    I second Prosiaczek for the PC version, playing the game on consoles would be great too!!!!

    I would have happily purchased a new app and the new expansion factions, however I appreciate that we get them for free if we previously purchased them. I’ve been looking forward to this! I would also love a Monolith Arena app 😉

    I agree with Critux, this should be a separate app.

    You should make some money on the new version, and we shouldn’t have to lose all our unlocked content to try out the new version.

    I’m happy to rebuy the game, I’ve enjoyed it for years already so I don’t feel I’ve wasted my money. I’m not happy to lose content I’ve already paid for (even if that content will reappear over the next year or so).

      Portal didn’t design the original app, so there’s not much they can do on that front. The original iOS app is currently unsupported and crashes on startup. Portal can not fix that. This is their only recourse.

      But you can keep the old app AND the new one.

        It sounds to me like this app will be replacing the old app on the store. But if it is a separate app, then awesome, best of both worlds.

    I keep my original game. I dont want to play just with 4 factions

      Initially it will be limited to 4 armies, but more will come, and if you purchased them before, you’ll get them for free in the new app too.

    HYPE!

    Will there be a way to remove the numbers for attacks and add the arrow thingies back again? 🙂

      I hope so too. I loved aspects of the old version that seem to have been lost.
      1. The ability to replay a game. I love this in solo play, repeating the game to get a ‘perfect’ score.
      2. The clarity of the icons.
      Good stuff in the new version too but not my priorities.
