changing the description of my igf entry to be shorter… not that it matters anymore.
A deconstruction of the real-time strategy game on a multi-touch surface.
Dominate your opponents with the power of rock, paper, and scissor.
i figure, dont make the people read too much.
this was the old description… was pushing the boundary on the 200 word limit
Hexagonal Rochambeau is a game based on the classic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. While playing Rochambeau you command units of these three types in battle with your opponent(s). As in the original school yard game, rock breaks scissor, scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, even with your own units. When two of the same units bump, they stop dead in their tracks.
In the Classic Mode you decide which unit to send forward by pressing it. This unit travels along a direct path towards the other player’s home base. The object of the game in this mode is to see who makes it to the opponent’s front door first.
2D Mode takes the game to a new level. You define a path for units on a hexagonal board by dragging them from their current position to a new hexagon. Just watch out because your opponent can also send your units to their doom. Taking over the entire board is only possible by the most skilled players therefore victory in 2D Mode has been relaxed to a percentage of the board. You can choose to play against one, two or even five opponents!
