Switch puzzler Hexologic has just received a rather substantial update, giving players 50% more content to play through with no extra charge.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, Hexologic is a hex-based puzzler which uses tile-based riddles to work the minds of its players. It's said to be quite the challenge, "even to the most experienced fans of logic games" like Sudoku and Picross. As you progress through the game, new, more complex mechanics are introduced inside new biomes.

This new update, which went live on Switch just yesterday, adds 36 new levels, two biomes, an updated soundtrack, and "lots of other features and enhancements". Players also now have the option to take their Hexologic journey through space, solving puzzles with a much higher level of demand, and play with higher difficulty settings introduced through limited assists and shuffled hexes.

The game's developer, MythicOwl, has said that the update has been implemented in response to player feedback, extending the game's playtime and enhancing the overall experience. The full list of changes can be found below.

New Features:
- 36 new levels
- 2 new worlds
- New types of hexes with different abilities
- New difficulty setting (limited assists, shuffled hexes)
- Soundtrack extended with new, relaxing music
- Improved in-game navigation (PC & Nintendo Switch)
- Improved overall stability and bug fixes

As mentioned above, this update is free of charge and is available worldwide. The full game is still available directly from the eShop for £2.49 / $2.99.
