Pre-Alpha

8-29-2012 - Currently there is a menu with a play button, clicking it takes you to the game state. In the game state you have a little soldier that you can move around. You can also 'pan' around the world by dragging. Click the exit button to go back to the menu.

9-5-2012 - Implemented deselecting of unit by clicking on already selected unit.
9-5-2012 - Implemented a travel range for units, such that they can only travel a specific distance per turn. Tiles in travel range are highlighted when a unit is selected.
9-6-2012 - Implemented placement/creation of units by clicking a tile and then selecting an option from a list that pops up.
9-7-2012 - Implemented a very basic HUD which displays unit attributes. Also implemented some basic attack functionality such that you can make units attack eachother.

Code TODOs:

  • implement free zooming
  • Implement a recap of the actions of the other player
  • implement terrain effects. ie traveling up hill limits distance, down hill boosts distance, etc.
  • split the game into 2 parts: in the first part, the only available action is to create units. In the second part, you can do everything else except create units (ie move, attack, etc).
  • implement game victory. as of right now that will just be when all the enemy units have been killed.
  • implement notifications. this will be a hurdle, because moai currently doesn't support notifications to individual phones (they have a group notification). They are working on it, but I may just have to come up with something myself.

Art TODOs:
replace pictures on game page with good art
Revamp the ui
concept different units
unit animations
