Main features of Hexoid 3D for Windows 8 and 8.1:
When you install and run Hexoid 3D on your Windows 8 or 8.1 device, you will be shown a screen which looks like the screenshot below.
As you can see above, you can choose to start the game via the Start button, and you can also choose to change the controls layout via the Controls button. The Quality button allows you to tweak the graphics quality of the game, and may come handy if you have an old machine which doesn’t support high end graphics. You can also toggle Godmode on or off which allows you to change the game over settings in a way that even if you fall off the track, you spawn again back on the track instead of the game getting over for you. When you click on the Start button, you will be shown the start line of the race track. Now, all you have to do is to wait for the reverse countdown from 3 to get over, and as soon as GO comes up on your screen, press your up arrow button to give your craft a boost.
The game has some ruggedly awesome graphics if I say so myself. The blue booster light emitted from the rear of your craft gives you a feel of speed, and it’s not just the feel of speed – the craft actually flies at speeds upto and maybe even over 900 km/hr (I could take it to 857 before I crashed!). The speed of the craft is shown in real time at the bottom of the screen, and the green meter shows the percentage of speed that you are travelling at. You can see the laps remaining at the top right, and you can see the time elapsed in your race at the top center of the screen. After the game, you will see a screen which will show you the time duration for which you could last on the track.
This pretty much sums up all the main features of Hexoid 3D for Windows 8 and 8.1.

Hexoid 3D is a pretty gripping game with a difference as instead of cars, you race jets. The overall feel of the game is great, and I definitely recommend trying it out!
