The Grid
« on: 2010-Mar-08 »
Finally getting around to finishing this game  :good:

The object is to remove your opponents shapes by either placing shapes of your colour in a vacant space or by expanding one of your own shapes.  Each square on the grid only take a certain number of shapes, and when this amount is exceeded, an explosion occurs affecting surrounding shapes.  If you can make your opponents shape explode, you take control of the square.

The corners, sides (top, bottom, left and right) and the squares inside all have a different tolerance.

If you activate the special weaponary, you have three extra things to choose from :

Dis-integrator - Destroys all shapes around a chosen square
Exploder - Forces all shapes around a chosen square to explode
Protector - Protects all shapes around a chosen square from being destroyed (or selected!)

Let me know if there are any problems.

Things to add include music and sound effects and possibly later an AI mode.  To exit the Sandbox mode, you need to click on your status area (to access the in-game menu) and select Abandon Game.

No, no music at the moment - nor any sound effects.  Haven't had chance to choose things yet...

This should be the last beta.

I've had to change all text display routines as Moru's proportional font system doesn't work on an iPhone in Landscape mode...

I've tried to download the last .RAR attachment three times (despite what it states - maybe only counts as one IP address) and I'm getting a bad .RAR (reads as 0Kb above) . Can you check and fix please.
