Hexa is a puzzle game made for Arcade machines, developed by D.R. Korea and released in early '90s.
The player needs to match 3 identical or more tiles in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally), as long they match each other. As the player progresses, various naked Asian women appear in the background (one at a time).
Hexa is a clone of Columns, a puzzle game released by Sega in 1990. As the company implies, the game is exclusive to South Korea. The game recycles music and SFX from Treasure of Usas, a game made by Konami for MSX2 and released in 1987, and recycle graphics (not the backgrounds on playfield) from Graph Saurus, a graphic utility (also) for MSX2 and released in 1991 by Bit², and the Title screen Icon above "HEXA" word from Plotting(Flipull in japan), made by Taito and released in 1989. And the hardware used in Hexa is the same used in Arkanoid, with the exception Hexa does not make use of a spinning dial and the lack of MC68075P5 for protection.
This game was more popular than the original Columns in korea in the 90's.
