Struck: Strategy + Luck, is on SALE for $0.99!!

Hey all! Struck, a board game for the iPhone, is now on sale for $0.99, temporarily marked down from $1.99! Please read the info below if you want to learn more about Struck!!!


The goal in Struck is to occupy all four Goal Squares at the opponents end of the board, and to prevent the opponent from occupying the Goal Squares on your end of the board.

Struck is a two-player board game, derived from a design that gives players complete control over the game environment. This type of control is given to the players in the form of opposite and similar polarity. Black and white are polar opposites, and controlling what is black, and what is white is the fundamental game play mechanic of Struck.



If you enjoy a good game of Chess, or Checkers, and relish some ruthless puzzle solving, Struck will be a breath of fresh air. Struck is not your typical game of black versus white. Each player will play as both black and white, and will constantly change between the two during play. The most unique game play element, however, is the malleable board. The board must be treated as an additional piece for each player, as either player can control the very layout of the board itself.

Each and every playing piece on the board will support a weakness and a strength. How strong, and how weak will depend on the state of the board, the location of the pieces, and polarity of the pieces. No two games are ever the same and the strategy is always changing. Stay on your toes, roll the die, and use your luck wisely.

LOVE STRUCK

This game feels like a really solid twist on Checkers and Othello-type games. I'm having a lot of fun with it. Also, the background art is really slick. Gonna have to try out the online multi-player next.

Thanks!

Thanks guys! I'm really glad you all like Struck! We're also making a physical board game version (which is REALLY fun), and we'll be at the GAMA Trade show in Las Vegas this March!

I'll post some more images soon!
