    My first response when seeing this puzzle: Cool!

    As to the puzzle itself, it was a little tricky to adapt to the fact that there were six directions as opposed to four, but once I figured out how a couple of the interactions from regular Akari carried over to a hexagonal grid, it wasn’t too bad. The break in (or break-ins?) were not too bad, although I did need to lay down a few “light cannot go there” dots.

    Getting started was tricky due to a lack of familiarity with hexagons, but as Giovanni said, there were hexagonal analogs of standard Akari techniques.

    Fun. It’s nice how a numbered clue can affect lines without forcing the exact position of a bulb.

    Neat. I agree with the others, it took awhile to figrure out the implications of the heaxagon grid. So I do not think I know yet how similar/different it is from square grid akari. But definitely nice.

    Same remark as Rob. I noticed most of the tricks quickly, so, the puzzle fell pretty easily. Still, nice and fun.
