The Game of Gale 1.0 is now available for download from the iTunes Store
The Game of Gale is an abstract strategy game invented by David Gale. Each player attempts to complete a connection of their own colour from one side of the board to the other.
My implementation of Gale has the following features:
- Local multiplayer
- AI opponent for solo play
- The finest quality programmer art available in my neighbourhood
The Game of Gale is an iPad-only release, mainly because of the way I chose to implement touch controls – players use their finger to “draw” the connection between nodes of their colour. I chose this approach because I think it feels good to use, and because it is very difficult to accidentally make a wrong move.
I learned a lot and had a lot of fun making this game. I hope you enjoy it too.
