Super Hexagon ported to Commodore 64 with Micro Hexagon

Still a bastard.  

Terry Cavanagh's dastardly difficult mobile classic Super Hexagon has been ported to the Commodore 64 via indie developers Paul Koller and Mikkel Hastrup as part of RGCD's C64 16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition.

Entitled Micro Hexagon, it looks incredibly faithful to its source material, which is pretty impressive for a game running on hardware developed three decades prior. While Micro Hexagon actually exists on a cart - as demoed on a CRT monitor in the video below - players can download it here to play it on an emulator.

If you're wondering how Cavanagh feels about his game getting ported and distributed for free, he seems to be okay with it as he retweeted Koller's promotion of the demake.

Koller is no stranger to porting mobile games to the Commodore 64 as he's previously done the same with Canabalt and Super Crate Box, which he transformed into C64abalt and Super Bread Box.

Our Martin Robinson was a big fan of the original Super Hexagon. "As far as pure action goes this is as good as it gets," he wrote in his App of the Day piece before assuring us that Terry Cavanagh's totally "a bastard" (albeit a "lovable, super-talented and quite brilliant" one).
