A hex upon your house!!!


Recommended Posts

There are surprisingly few console games with hex grids (which I greatly favor).

Here are the US ones I can think of:

Allied General (PS1)
Brigandine (PS1)
DarkWizard (Sega CD)
Iron Storm (Saturn)
Master of Monsters (Genesis)
Master of Monsters (PS1) (A truly miserble game)
Military Madness (Turbografx - it is included as part of Nectaris)
Nectaris (PS1)
Panzer General (PS1)

I think at least one of the Warrior of Rome games (Genesis) had a hex grid - formed by offset rectangles.  Both were pretty poor games.

There were some of import games that had them - including the Daisenryaku games - of which Iron Storm was one.

One thing that i also like about hex grids is that they usually incorporate zones of control - another mechanic that adds to the fun.

Aw my wise friend. When are you going to show some Koei love? All the Koei Nes strategy games are offset rows of squares which in effect are hex based maps. A lot of the Snes/Genesis Koei games have hex based maps too but I stick to the Nes ones mostly

Genghis Khan

Bandit Kings of Ancient China

Nobunaga's Ambition 1&2

Romance of the Three Kingdoms 1&2
