Description

PLAY WHAT THE ROMANS PLAYED, on your iPhone/iPod Touch.

It is the year 20 BC. Emperor Augustus has brought peace to a young Roman Empire. Two friends sit upon the steps outside the amphitheatre, locked in concentration over a stone board upon which glass pieces have been placed, trying to gain an advantage over one another. They’re playing Ludas Latrunculorum, a game already hundreds of years old, which enjoys a high level of popularity within the Empire.

Now you can play what the Romans played on your iPhone/iPod Touch. Using the latest in Artificial Intelligence, we’ve recreated this ancient game for your enjoyment.

Rules:

* The initial board configuration is automatically set-up by the computer.

* Black moves first.

* Players alternate turns during which a single piece of the player's own colour is moved.

* Pieces may move horizontally or vertically any number of spaces (like Chess rooks).

* A single stone is captured if it is surrounded on two opposite sides by pieces of the opposing colour.

* The outside walls cannot be used to capture pieces.

* A stone in the corner is captured by two stones of the opposing colour placed across the corner.

* Multiple stones can be captured along a line.

* If a player moves into position to capture a line of several opposing pieces which includes the Dux, the Dux is not taken but the other pieces are.

* The Dux cannot be captured, but can be immobilized by being surrounded on all four sides.

* The first player to immobilize the enemy Dux wins.

* The Dux is immobilized if it is blocked by an enemy stone such that it has no place left to move.

* If the game stalemates, the player with the most captured enemy stones wins.

* The game ends when 30 moves are made without a capture, with the player with the most pieces remaining on the board declared the winner.

What's New in Version 2.0.2

* fixed problems with OS version 3.0

2/5 stars

Great Game

:
I will amend this rating when the developer adds a regular multiplayer that requires one iPod and one game only and a save game option. Otherwise good job fun game

2/5 stars

No in game two player

:
This is a fun game! I would add more stars but this game does not support a simple human vs human match up that does not require a network connection! The only reason why I purchased this app was to be able to play my buddies using my iPhone. Everyone does not have an iPhone you know. If you want to only play the computer or if all your friends have iphones, buy this app. If not stick to the free version!
