Micro Hexagon brings Super Hexagon to the Commodore 64

New, 6 comments

Developers Paul Koller and Mikkel Hastrup created a Commodore 64 version of Terry Cavanagh's Super Hexagon, an action twitch-based game that was originally released for iOS, Android and PC.

Titled Micro Hexagon, it was programmed by Koller for the second RGCD Cartridge Development Competition, a contest where developers submit games in working 16KB cartridge ROM format. The games submitted don't have to be original works, but they have to have been made for the Commodore 64 by the developer.

Micro Hexagon adapts Cavanagh's PC and mobile title to the old school personal computer. In the video above, the game is played on a CRT monitor, but it can also be downloaded and played on an emulator.

Koller has previously ported other titles to the Commodore 64, such as Adam Saltsman's Canabalt (released as C64anabalt) and Vlambeer's Super Crate Box (Super Bread Box).
