This looks interesting, but would like an idea of the general rules before I purchase. Is the dev here?

My mistake. Here's a quote from another thread (iPad games)
Quote:
Looks like Stratego to me. (A game that would work great as an iOS game IMO!)

The object is to capture the opponent's flag. You're given a flag of your own, a few bombs, and soldier pieces of various strength and some with special abilities (like defusing bombs). You need to arrange your side of the board using your soldiers and bombs to protect your flag. You cannot see the opponent pieces. Once you've placed your pieces on the board, you move the pieces towards each other. When two pieces land on the same spot on the board, you reveal the pieces and the highest strength wins. If you hit a bomb spot and you don't have one of the soldiers that is capable of difusing bombs, then the soldier loses. So, it's a game of strategy...arranging your pieces, moving the appropriate pieces, and then attacking your opponent pieces. The original game is great fun, still one of my favorites. If this is anything like the original, then it could be pretty awesome.
And this web site has official rules (http://www.isfstratego.com/)

Also, I already posted warning in another thread, there's a bug with multiplayer in current version. The 0.2 update will be available soon (1.5 weeks tops) fixing that bug.

It looks interesting, but I think I would have a tough time remembering which piece was which just by the hat differences.

So it's basically a Stratego clone?

As posted in the iPad thread (should these be merged?), this is free right now - everyone should pick this one up!

is it possible to merge threads?
I was looking for something like Universal Games, but there's no such thing, so posted it 2 times.
