It’s rare that a single feature adds both accessibility and depth, but Hextech Mayhem stands out as a unique title capable of generating creativity on what otherwise seems like a linear path.

For 10 bucks, you’re getting a personality-driven rhythm romp with the hindsight of a decade-plus of genre experience. That’s pretty good! I mostly just wish it was bigger; because if it was, it would be able to expand its firm foundation and take things to the next level. That said, the ease of access of Hextech Mayhem ensures that if you’re coming off of Arcane, you can immerse yourself in the League world with a lot less strife than the MOBA.

Is a fun runner that mixes music with the idea of pressing the buttons at the right time, it's cheap price might make you ignore its overly used art and overall design on each level.

Curious League of Legends spin-off, this Hextech Mayhem. It's a simple but solid rhythm game that could use some variety to spice up the gameplay and the level design.

Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is a fun rhythm game that features a couple of interesting ideas. Other than that, this experience doesn't offer much for the MOBA world or for the gamer.

Playing Hextech Mayhem you'll find yourself keeping the tempo, while flying in explosions as a little yordle. And that's cool.

As a smaller budget game, the rhythm mechanics are decent enough, and once you unlock Full Action Mode the problems with freestyle mayhem completely disappear. Unfortunately, more freestyle mayhem means more performance drops, which means more missed button presses. Hextech Mayhem is a fine little game, but the fact that the best way to play just doesn't work sometimes and is only available after finishing the game, I'm not sure I can really recommend it to anyone that isn't a League of Legends fan that's really itching to see more of Ziggs in action.

It arrives as the first independent game in the Riot universe with large doses of explosions and chaos. The control is easy to understand but difficult to master, although it can become repetitive.

Even without much of the LoL context, Hextech Mayhem is still a fun ride for music game aficionados and 2D platformer fans.

While Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story provides a great experience in short bursts, none of its levels feel as replayable as the best of the developer's past work or the best of the rhythm genre. This is a fatal flaw in a game with gated progression, and there are no supplementary modes or other features to distract from it. As it stands, the game's mix of mobile mechanics makes its release on traditional platforms baffling, and only those who are immediately intrigued by Ziggs in a game outside of League of Legends will get something substantial out of the final product in its current available forms.
