We developed an iOS application called “TACTX” for Stan Resnicoff. Here’s the client’s description of the application:
What does it take to turn an age-old familiar children’s game into one of the most creative, competitive, strategic gaming experiences today? Check out TACTX to find out.
* Simple to learn, complex to master
* Appropriate for families or serious gamers
* Language independent
* Strategic and competitive
* Every game is a unique challenge… it’s fast and fun!
TACTX is like Tic-Tac-Toe on steroids. Its a strategy game that starts out simply but gets complex fast. 3 in a row vertically, diagonally or horizontally earns you 3 points BUT the game doesn’t stop there. Add to your lines to get many more points.
Your choices are to score, block your opponent from scoring, or go into an empty square for some imagined future advantage. Add the fact that every new game board has different squares blocked out and you’ll see how quickly it gets complex. High score wins… Good luck! (And watch those diagonals.)
To make the game even more challenging, upgrade to get the countdown timer to play your opponent against the clock!
