Hot Spot X for Mac1.22

20 May 2006

Remake of Mac OS Classic puzzle game.

What is Hot Spot X for Mac

Hot Spot X is a modern remake of an old Mac OS Classic game called Hot Spot. You have a game board that consists of four concentric rings around a center spot (check out the screenshots). You also have 32 game tiles consisting of two tiles each of every combination of four colors and four symbols (2 x 4 x 4 = 32). The object of the game is to place a tile in that center spot by working your way in from the outer rings by followingc certain rules:
  1. Tiles cannot match their neighbors in symbol or color.
  2. Tiles in the inner rings must match one of the parent tiles they are connected to by color and the other by symbol.
To date, I have not been able to complete a game yet but I've gotten pretty darn close.

What's new in Hot Spot X

Version 1.22:
  • Fixed: Bonus points for a perfect game not awarded when applicable.
  • Keyboard shortcuts now usable when presented with a dialog sheet to start a new game, end the current game, or continue with the current game (which appears when you've run out of moves). Basically, instead of say, pressing the button to start a new game, you can use command-N and so on.
  • Forgot to mention the score penalty for undoing moves. If anyone has an opinion about whether there should be one or if it should be less, please feel free to e-mail me.

I used to play the original of this all the time as a kid! Seriously the hardest puzzle game I've ever played, I don't think I've ever won a game! However that's what makes it fun :-) Looks like the devs did a great job porting this to OS X.

Has anyone actually finished a game. It's so frustrating.

This a a fun and challenging game - I have come close to winning only once out of about 12 games so far. One addition I would like is the ability to see what the next tile will be. Maybe that would make it easier (too easy?), but I think it would be helpful and might increase my chances of actually winning a game! :)

I find this game addictive; every time I play a game, I want to play just one more. It was easy to learn. I don't like to play games that depend upon reaction times. I like thinking games, especially ones that don't take too long to play so I can play a quick game while I am waiting for something or when I need a short break between activities. I played my first game in early September and it took me several days before I finally got a win. Since then I have won only one more game with a score of 800. This was on the easiest level; I can't imagine trying at a harder level! I find it challenging because I know it is possible to win, but not easy. Features that I wish the game had: 1. a way to save games to go back and continue later if I am interrupted 2. a way to save wins so I can show them to others 3. score would display without being reselected each time the program is opened 4. it would keep a list of highest scores and who made them 5. explanation of scoring and possible strategies listed in the help documentation
