My new iOS project is an exploration of Combinatorial Game Theory for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. I wrote the code and text, and Amanda Sinasac of Dreams & Drifters provided art and design. Chocolate Chomp is now available for download in the iTunes App Store.
Chocolate Chomp is an implementation of the game Chomp, as described by mathematician David Gale.
Chomp is a two-player strategy game which takes place on a rectangular grid of squares.
Chocolate Chomp can be played against a friend, solo against the computer, or you can watch the computer play both sides of the game. By selecting different board dimensions you can explore the different properties and winning conditions of the game.
Chocolate Chomp includes a descriptive essay about Chomp and combinatorial game theory.
