Pointed-Top Hexagon

A Hexagon which is pointed on top and bottom can be referred to as a Pointed-Top Hexagon. These are rotated 30º from the less common Flat-Top Hexagons. Pointed-Top Tiles are useful in 2D games, especially because they produce maps which fit better on (wide) computer screens, and sprites or objects elevated above the plane do not obscure the tiles above them as easily as Flat-Top Tiles.
