Hexa is an arcade puzzle game, 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, based on Sega's Columns rules, as the Hexa is a clone of it. As the player progresses, various naked Asian women appear in the background (one at a time).
- 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.
- 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.
- Some Samsung phones in early 2000s, namely the SGH-N500, also features a Columns-style game named "Hexa", possibly a nod to this game or it's popularity in Korea. However, the Samsung game does not feature any nudity.
