The Hex Grid tag refers to a specific game feature or design element found in video games. It indicates that the game is played on a grid composed of hexagonal tiles, rather than the more common square or rectangular grid.

Hex grids offer several advantages and unique gameplay mechanics compared to traditional square grids:

  • Movement and Range On a hex grid, each tile typically has six neighboring tiles. This allows for more fluid and natural movement patterns for characters or units within the game. It also affects range calculations, line of sight, and the overall tactical decision-making in strategy games.
  • Balanced Distances Hexagonal tiles have equal distances from their center point to all adjacent tiles, creating balanced spacing throughout the map. This can result in more balanced gameplay and strategic choices as opposed to square grids where diagonal movements would be longer than horizontal or vertical ones.
  • Aesthetics The use of hexagonal tiles can also have aesthetic benefits, as they provide a unique visual style that is distinct from traditional grid-based games. The geometry of hexagons often gives the game world an appealing honeycomb-like pattern.

The Hex Grid tag encompasses various genres of games that incorporate this feature, such as strategy games (e.g., turn-based tactics, wargames), board games (digital adaptations), and even puzzle games.

Examples of popular titles that utilize hex grids include:

  • Civilization V A renowned turn-based strategy game where players build empires through exploration, diplomacy, warfare, cultural development on a global scale with cities occupying hex tiles.
  • Into the Breach A turn-based tactics game with a futuristic setting where players control mechs on a hex grid to defend cities from alien threats using time-travel mechanics.
  • BattleTech A tactical wargame set in a sci-fi universe where players command teams of giant mechs in hex-based combat scenarios, offering strategic decisions and intense battles.

The Hex Grid tag signifies that the game provides gameplay experiences that revolve around the unique mechanics and challenges presented by utilizing hexagonal grids, allowing for strategic thinking, precise movements, and thoughtful planning.
