Any particular type of game? Does it have to be an Amiga game? If not, then there is WeeWar.

I hate hexmaps and have banned them from all games I have ever made.  But if you really want a hex game then you might try Battle Isle or Perfect General or Mechforce.
Wanna try a wonderfull strategy game with lots of handdrawn anims,
Magic Spells and Monsters, Incredible playability and lastability,
English speech, etc. Total Chaos AGA

Amiga and c64 games

I have played a game called Full Metal Planet.
You could turn off the hex.
I had part of a game for C64 that was a war game.
I just can not remember the name

edit:
board games:
Also I played Mechwarrior on a fold out map.

I found a game from Game Designer's Workshop called
Assault Tactical Combat in Europe:1985.
It is not the full game.

IIRC  Battle Isle (2) was hex based

KOEI games (Romance of Three Kingdoms, Genghis Khan, Bandit Kings Etc.) should have hexmaps (battle screen)
I believe in mt. Fuji

Because:
1. Hex games are 20x slower than square games.
2. Square unit gfx always look better than hex unit gfx.

History Line 1914-1918... excellent game with hex tiles.

Basically Battle Isle but in the real world!

Battle Isle seems to be the most memorable.
I believe it was also on Sega Genesis.

1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Isn't the reason people use hex fields is so the characters can look like they are going diagonally?
