Lion's Play Strategy Game for iPhone and iPod touch

Summary:

Lion's Play is a strategy game between Lion's and Buffaloes. In addition to the classic version I have invented 17 games based on different geometrical shapes. This game is battle between Lions and Buffaloes. I have maintained ratio between Lions and around 3 to 5. Lions will win if it gabble up all buffaloes or able to restrict movement of all buffaloes. Buffaloes will win if all the Lions movement is restricted. If you like chess or checkers then you will love this game



Body:

Lion's Play game is based on "Puli Judham"(Gamble of Tigers) Telugu region (Andhrapradesh) game, or "Adu Puli" (Tamilnadu) game, and with different names in other parts of India. Originally this game is between Tigers and goats. For this Lions Play game to attract global presence I have adopted Lions and Buffaloes are models for this game;

This game is famous in rural part of India where farmers play this game in the evening after returning from fields work. When I was a kid, I use to watched over my Father's Shoulder while he was playing with other farmers. He taught me how to play this game. I have spent last couple of months of time to bring out one of the hidden treasure of rural Indian game to the world. I have put in my sincere effort to share this game which my father taught me to the gaming world. It is the first ever attempt to document this game. I hope you like it.

It is strategy game, in Classic "Puli Judham" game, which has triangular formation with two crossed rectangles, In order to Lions to win the game They have to gabble up all buffaloes or restrict movement of Buffaloes. On the other hand, if Buffalo's needs to win, they have to restrict Lions movement. In addition to Classic version I have created 18 levels based different geometric shapes. In which maintained Ratio of Buffaloes Vs Lions is around 3 to 5;

The premise is interesting. I love strategy games, especially ones that I've never even heard of before.

However, the appstore images of the game are just line images which I assume are the different game boards. But why no images of gameplay?

that's why I asked for the video, hopefully that will clear up any confusion I or any others have.
