For this month competition I will be programming Super Tic-Tac-Toe..
For those of you (probably everybody, its not a very popular game) Read this.
Super Tic Tac Toe is a variant of the classic game of tic tac toe that involves a lot more strategy and clever thinking. Super Tic Tac Toe is played on a 3 by 3 grid of 3 by 3 tic tac toe boards. A players move in a small tic tac toe board restricts the movements of the next player on the larger tic tac toe board. Winning a small tic tac toe board gives a player a point, on that spot. The goal of the game is to have the most points when all 9 small boards are won, or get 5 wins.
(Here is a link for a "basic" imitation of the game I will be making (Slight rule changes, for example: the first player MUST go in the center board)
I will attempt to update this regularly.
Download Source Code.
I will be attempting to write this in XNA which is something new(ish) to me. using Graphics and other cool features of XNA..
Level 1: Downloadable Playable 2 player game — 100% Complete!!!!!!!!!!!
Level 2: Simple Menu, Rules Screen — 100% Complete!!!!!!!!!!!
Level 3: Animated Sprites(just cuz), Players that have names, Names/Score appears during gameplay. — 00% complete.
Level 4: Save/Load Games, Gui ingame. — GUI 90% Complete!
Level 5: Some type of GUI that involves the computer playing itself in the backround behind the menu. — 00% Complete.
So there are my goals, I really hope to get past Level 3. and I think I can do it, but the next two are really stretch goals that should/might be accomplished AFTER the one month period..
After finishing this challenge I really want to work on AI stuff.. maybe a tower defense game?
Please Download and give me suggestions and feedback..
