3D Checkers released!

Hiya,

My first iPhone game, 3D Checkers, will hit the free section of the appstore in the next day or two.

My goal with this app is to really nail the board-game experience. I am unsatisfied with the gameplay of current popular checkers titles, which don't let you directly manipulate pieces, and sometimes use clunky pop-up dialog boxes! Plus I find the standard flat 2D view rather boring.

3D Checkers aims to immerse the player in an attractive environment with intuitive direct touch-and-drag control. It offers two different board styles, two different AI levels and a human vs human "hotseat" mode.

Here are some screenshots. You can also see it in action at 3dcheckers.koduco.com. I hope you like it!

-Cole

Yes! I'm working on peer-to-peer real time play, and asynchronous (casual) gaming using push notification.

And if it really is free, it's a definite download for me.

Yup! Totally free. Although as I add features, I may charge something in the future.
