Honeycomb Beat (DS) Review


Hudson Soft unveils some portable puzzle action on your Nintendo DS.

This game is could be far better or far worse. What we have here is an excellent game to waste time on and feel no regret. I would try to rent it if you can. That will allow you to get a feel for it and decide if its something you should pick up...

Honeycomb Beat Review


Konami and Hudson's hexagon puzzler is a solid bit of fun.

Honeycomb Beat is a simple puzzler once you get your head around how the puzzles work and is well suited for both adults and kids looking for some wholesome and safe fun. The biggest problem with the game is that it wears thin after a while. But with...

Honeycomb Beat Nintendo DS Review


A cool hexagonal board (there are lots of hexagons in this game, if you hadn't noticed) tracks your progress as each solved puzzle allows access to its neighbors. Evolution mode is slightly more traditional; rows of tiles rise from the bottom of the...

Cost-effective puzzling; something new for people who've already played everything else

Somewhat basic design; better games out there if you're willing to spend a bit more; no multiplayer

Whether a product of the unique dual screens or the touch controls, the DS has become the undisputed king of portable puzzle gaming. Falling somewhere between the traditional outings like Zoo Keeper and the unique releases like Meteos, Honeycomb Beat...

Honeycomb Beat


Puzzle games either last for forever or for 15 minutes. If the gimmick takes hold, it never lets go and people are still clearing lines 20 years later (Tetris) or being adapted into oddly captivating RPG hybrids a la Puzzle Quest (Bejeweled)....

Honeycomb Beat


With 200 individual puzzles and an Evolution mode, Honeycomb's big -- yeah, yeah, yeah, but is it the best DS puzzle game? No, no, no.

The two available modes are fun for a while; nice music and graphical effects

Extremely limited game options; no multiplayer mode

Honeycomb Beat (2007) on Nintendo DS


Honeycomb Beat's a nice try at giving DS gamers a unique puzzle design, but ultimately it's nothing more than a basic diversion. It offers challenge for a few hours of play, but without that little addictive spark it's hard to see this game ever making...

A weak foundation is this competent puzzle game's ultimate flaw.

Honeycomb Beat


The DS is the perfect system for puzzle games and it's no surprise that the handheld boasts some impressive puzzle games in its catalogue. Honeycomb Beat from Hudson is the latest puzzle game to arrive on the DS and, all things considered, it's an...

Honeycomb Beat is a fine puzzle game that's equally suitable for a few minutes or a few hours of your time. Priced at under £20 it also represents solid value for money. The game provides four save slots so if other members of your household are DS...

Honeycomb Beat DS Review


The Nintendo DS is a platform made for puzzle games. The phenomenal success of the Brain Training games, the plethora of Sudoku titles and the mind-bendingly fast Meteos games all stand tribute to DS's intuitive controls and portable in-your-pocket...

Plus, all those hexagons brought back nightmares about Blockbuster. Can I have a ‘P' please, Bob?

Honeycomb Beat


Maybe I'm missing something. Maybe if I put enough hours into this game it eventually would 'energize my mind' as the blurb on the back of the box promises, but frankly, life's too short to find out.
