The Octagon Theory 3 (Tot 3)

TOT 3 is the new The Octagon Theory with cross-platform online multiplayer!

(A Mac version is also available on the iTunes App Store.)

Online Multiplayer Tutorial video: http://www.azumachogames.com/tutorial *1

Play cross-platform online games between iPads and Macs against 1 to 3 human players. Choose to play on 1 of 5 multiplayer boards. Includes in-game chat.

Single-player: Play one-on-one against the computer. Choose from 2 AI opponents.

Easy to pick up, impossible to put down, exciting to play, and a challenge to master.

TOT 3 is a completely original two-player, turn-based, strategy game that is played on an octagon-shaped board. It's completely different from but also in the style of board games like Othello (Reversi), Checkers, and Chess.

Although the strategy is very deep a person can learn to play without using a manual or following a tutorial. Just follow your intuition and make a few moves then watch what the computer does in response to your moves.

*1. Online multiplayer is free for everyone till March 31, 2015!

False start

Due to my app's name (Apple made me change it) it was almost impossible to find it and it would not come up in an App Store search in some countries. So I took it down and am in the process of renaming and resubmitting it. It will probably be about two weeks If I canít get Apple to speed up the process.

I am very sorry for the confusion and will post here again as soon as it is available.

Thankfully Alex who runs AiGameDev.com and is located in Austria did his best to find my game and pointed out the problem to me. So I am renaming it from TOT 3 back to The Octagon Theory 3 which it was before Apple told me I had to change it because the app store name didn't match the name of the app when it was installed (TOT 3). And stupid me thought it'd be easier to change the app store display name instead of the installation name. I should have done the opposite. I didn't think TOT 3 would be nearly impossible to find in a search, and I kind of liked it....shorter and easier than The Octagon Theory. I should take some SEO seminars.
