UFHO2 - A mind-bending strategy game




UFHO2 is a turn-based strategy game of wit and cunning. The action takes place in an hexagonal U.F.O., and players have to navigate this labyrinth of rooms in a race against an opponent to get the Gems.

The idea of the game is that you have to think fast and act fast. Every turn is 20 seconds, and while your opponent moves you have to plan ahead your next turn.

To get a better idea of the game, check out the gameplay video.
Some screens:

Title screen


All the alien races in the game, each one with its own unique power


4 players match in the Training Room


Maaaaany powerups on the board!


The City in the Clouds


Dialogues in the story mode


(screens are from the PC version, but they differ only in the aspect ratio!)

The game will be for the iPad, PC, Mac and Linux. We are working hard to create a cross-platform multiplayer mode, so desktop players can compete with tablet players anytime, from any device/computer they have! Neat!

Also, a thing we're pretty excited about is 4 player multiplayer on the same iPad. The game is awesome when played face-to-face, imagine with 3 friends!

We are Tiny Colossus, a two-people team based in Rome. The game was funded back in february via a small Kickstarter campaign.
UFHO2 is supposed to be released around october, more or less!

For more info, check our website or - if you're feeling social - our Facebook page, our Twitter, our Youtube channel.

Hey guys! Long time no see! In the past year I've had quite a lot of problems with the development of UFHO2, which eventually came to an halt. But with 2014, things have gone better.

I resume this thread because *trumpets* UFHO2 is almost out!
It's been in review at Apple's for some days, so there should be just a couple of days before it comes out.

Some new screens from the latest iPad:















How is it looking?
I have a trailer for the PC version, but is going live tomorrow.

By the way, once it comes out it will be on discount for 14 days, so if you see it on the App Store, grab it as soon as possible! (same goes for the PC version, which is coming out tomorrow on Desura and Humble Store, actually if you get it today it's 40% off).

I'll keep you posted once it's available. If anybody wants to review it, I can send codes

Looks pretty cool. I'm a sucker for hexagonal strategy games.

Thanks

Don't be scared by the board though: I could say that the game has only one rule (which is, "if it's connected you can pass"), so it's kinda easy to get at first.

The interaction with the other player, with powerups, with character powers, etc. is what makes the deep strategy, but you can still play a simple match with none of these things on.
