Let us introduce our first game for Android. It is called Pobs and it’s a nice logic game. Pobs was being developed simultaneously on two mobile platforms – Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android. In May 2009 Google announced Android Developer Challenge 2 on Google IO ’09, and we decided to take a part in contest. So this is the reason why iPhone version has been released earlier and Android version goes to Market only now…
Pobs is an amazing logic/board game for Android OS similar to Checkers or Reversi, but with unique game mechanics – the game takes place on a level made of hexagonal cells. Based on a mechanics of old game Hexxagon (for MS-DOS), game has a lot of great new stuff that make it more addictive than ever.
Each player owns pobs of a distinct color. With each move you can choose either to jump with a pob or to copy it to a free neighbour cell. Consequently, all the opponent’s pobs near your newly placed pob will become yours!
The goal of the game is to capture as many pobs as possible. The game ends when no more cells are available.

In May 2009 Google announced Android Developer Challenge 2 on Google IO ’09, and we decided to take a part in contest. It began in September and ended 30th of November.
Pobs was selected by Android users as one of the top 20 in the “Casual” category and became a finalist of contest. Unfortunately, we didn’t win a prize in final.
