Fun game, decent AI, wish there was sound/music
Fun game with decent AI, pretty easy to beat when on equal footing, but then the piece arrangements and giving cpu more pieces on the board sometimes, add a little extra challenge to the game.
Only negative to me was that the game lacks sound/music:
Would have been nice to have some sound fx for piece selection, piece movements (one for adjacent move and one for the jump move) and piece gains/losses.
Also would have been nice to have some background tune playing during the games, maybe a couple at least that would cover the eight stages provided. A short win/lose jingle would be nice to have as well.
Some optional improvements to the concept in case a sequel might be in the works:
- More stages to choose from, that one's easy.
- A stage unlocking/selection screen.
- A custom board editor for those who wanna try fiddling with piece arrangements for themselves.
- Ability to fiddle with board dimensions and shapes, no need to limit self to a limited board arrangement, one of the fun bonuses to having a board game in a digital format.
- Ability to choose AI difficulty levels, at least a level up or down from the current one.
- Maybe have boards with more than just two players (human or AI) competing for space against eachother's pieces.
Overall it was a fun game that just needs a little more polish in the sound/music department, gameplay is solid and AI is decent.
