So Battletech came out in 1984 as Battledroids, but also that year there was a mecha hexgrid combat game for the Dougram anime called 'Battle of Stanrey'


Play with a perescope to get a miniature's eye view, neat

That's the earliest instance of a mecha combat game I know of, but is there anything older that's mecha based? OGRE came out in 1977 but it uses massive tanks on a hex grid.
