iAtoms is out! ($0.99)

iAtoms is a very addictive game. It can be played with up to 4 players. where each player can be the AI, you or another player. It can be played at one device, over the internet or lan.

The goal of the game is to create a chain reaction which places atoms of your color in all fields of your opponents.
A reaction starts if there are as many atoms in one fields as fields around that field. Which means 2 in the corners, 3 at the edges and 4 everywhere else.
You can only place your own atoms into an empty field or a field which already contains an atom of your color.
The reacting atoms will move into the sourrounding fields and make all atoms in those fields yours.

JustSid and I created this game. The sounds and music were done by Ezekiel Rage (www.ezekiel-rage.at).

You can get the game here: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=327016186&mt=8

Here is a youtube video showing four AI players playing against each other:

What do you think? I remembering watching the video - and it looks quite interesting. Massive changes in numbers with particular moves.

First Impressions

The game seems pretty random, especially towards the end.

I haven't played this enough to figure out any real strategy other than put atoms in boxes that will spread that are as close to as many enemy atoms as possible (hopefully causing chain reactions that will ripple through the board.)

The music is cool, and the game is fun to watch, but I can't take it too seriously yet.

Also: THE GAME IS UPSIDE DOWN! Home button on the right, please! (Although except for the scores, the game is orientation-agnostic.)

Yep, thats because the reactions are really huge at the end. But if you play some games, you will get a feeling for that.

Oh and good strategy is, to build not too big atom fields at the start. Be thin and don't deliever a big contact surface.

I hate the home button on the right side... But I will allow both landscape orientations in an update.
