App description: Are you ready for some brain gymnastics? If you are looking for a calm, relaxing turn-based board game, Quadratus is just for you.
It's easy to learn and fun to play, but beware - it's addictive and very challenging at higher levels. You have been warned!
On the other hand, this game can be simple enough to be played by your kid. Just set it to Easy mode.

The rules of this game are simple: tap to select your checker, then tap twice - 1 square away to put a new one, or 2 squares away to move your selected checker. Once placed, this new one affects all the checkers in its immediate radius, turning any of your opponents checkers into your own. Take the most squares to win.

The game ends when:
* all squares have been taken, or
* one of the players can't move (blocked by other player)

Game features:
* Two game modes - build your career or play a quick single game
* Three opponent types - Human (hot-seat mode), Easy A.I. and Hard A.I.
* Three visual styles: traditional wood, modern metal & natural green
* Large, easy to use "zoom & scroll" gameboard. It can be also switched to "scale to fit" mode
* New red tokens for more challenging gameplay (they block some squares)
* Save & restore system
* Local high-scores table
* Randomized boards
* Options screen with ability to turn on/off game music and sounds. When game music is turned off you can listen to your own music while playing.

demarca's comments:
Hi, I've posted some info about my game three weeks ago (iPad version) and got good reviews. Thanks. Since then Quadratus HD stays on the What's Hot list (Board games for iPad) on the US AppStore.

Now it's time for the iPhone/iPod Touch version to be announced



This game has only one difference compared to the iPad version - the gameboard, while playing, is zoomed-in. This is caused by the iPhone's smaller screen.
Check it yourself, if it suits you - there is a free Lite version available here (with no Hard A.I. and no Career mode):

Quadratus Lite on the AppStore

Give it a chance and enjoy!

Looks like Hexxagon on a square ... which I suppose makes it more like Ataxx. Looks well designed anyway.

Yes, old good "Ataxx" is one of the keywords here
