Let us introduce our first game for iPhone and iPod Touch. It is called Pobs and it’s a nice logic game. Pobs was being developed simultaneously on two mobile platforms – iPhone OS and Google’s Android. iPhone version has been released in AppStore 30th of August ’09 (current version 1.2). The game received many positive reviews and Android version became one of the top-20 in Casual / Puzzle games category in Android Developer Challenge 2. We still working on the game and sometimes adding new levels and features…
Pobs is an amazing logic/board game for iPhone and iPod Touch 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.
