Artifice Strategy game released today

I am the developer of a new free game that just went into the app store today. Here is a short description and the appstore link.

Outwit your opponent in this unique strategy game. Shift columns in a grid in an attempt to get all your players to the opposite side of the board before your opponent.

D/L now. A review shall be posted here shortly.

UPDATE: Artifice is a unique strategy game. Read above for the description. For the intro. price of free, it's worth it. Often times I had trouble moving certain boxes. Other than those few boxes, everything worked very well. Graphically the sprites are well done and the game runs smoothly. It's definitely challenging and not hard to let some opponents slip by. Complete with multiplayer, Artifice is a full package.

What boxes did you have trouble moving?

It was the lower left ones. I don't remember exactly which ones they were though since the movable box choices frequently change (I like that part.) Still will be worth it even if it's not free.

I like this game a lot, but the AI could be better.

Yeah, only minor issues here too. It's a great game, especially being a freebie!

Nope! It's ad free. The idea is to get all your guys to the other side with the colors. Oh, and remember, don't ask for promo codes. They might ban you and that ain't good!

I am working on 3 levels of difficulty for the next update (Easy, Medium and Hard). Right now the difficulty is what easy mode will be. There is already an update in review that includes an enhanced walk animation and a new background. The difficulty selection will be in the following update. Expect this game to be updated frequently as I have lots of plans for it. Thanks for the feedback.

Will you add team color selection? That and maybe a team flag would help deepen the experience.
