Hex Defender is a tower defence game with a difference. With most tower defence games the turrets are placed and the position of that specific turret is fixed. With Hex Defender the six turrets are rotatable around a hexagon. There are six colours to choose from for your turrets which will all be effective against six different coloured enemy ships; red destroys red for example. Enemies spawn from the left and right of the screen and attack the hexagon to reach the crystal in the middle. Your job is to stop them using strategy and tactics. Positioning, choice and demolition of turrets will be factors in completing a successful mission.
