Oak On Ell Apps
A strategic board game of skill and memory.Use cunning and guile to get four of your pieces in a row-horizontally, vertically, or diagonally- while preventing youropponent from doing the same.Although similar to Tic-Tac-Toe, the fact that the pieces canstack, and thus block or hide existing pieces on the board givesadded complexity to the otherwise simple sounding game.Play against a friend on the same device.Play against four different levels of AI.Play against friends via Google Play Game Services.You can also play a Junior version on a 3x3 board, and a"strict" version where there is no peeking- once you touch a pieceon the board you must move it.Additionally, you can play the game using the ELO ranking systemagainst the AIs and friends, keeping track of your ability via arank for each of the three game types (Junior, Normal, Strict).The only in-app purchase is to upgrade from free/ad-based to theno-ads.Permissions used:*) android.permission.VIBRATEFor user feedback*) android.permission.INTERNETFor1) ad delivery if premium in-app upgrade not purchased2) using achievements, leaderboards, and multiplayer games-optional3) for AI rank update/access- optional*) android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTSFor optional Google Play game access*) android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATEFor optional Google Play game access*) android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGEFor storing local games' states*) com.android.vending.BILLINGFor upgrading the app to premium to remove ads
Find X is an algebraic puzzle game where yousolve algebraic equations with limited operations, and hopefully inthe process learn, or brush up on your, algebra skills.The game presents a series of stages composed of several levelswhere you must solve for X. It sounds simple, if you know algebra.However, it becomes a more complicated puzzle because theoperations you can apply are limited to a small subset for eachlevel.The higher levels require more thought as to the correct operationsand order to apply them in.Each level has some undos available, and is scored based onwhether the minimum number of moves was made and if any undos wereused.Additionally, there is the ability to create custom levels andshare them with others to see if they can 'Find X'.Inspired by thoughts on the gamification of algebra by TerenceTao (https://plus.google.com/114134834346472219368/posts), and hisAlgebra game in Scratch(http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/teorth/2477436).
Chaotic-Tac-Toe is an Android App gamewhereyou can play traditional Tic-Tac-Toe as well as somemoreinteresting "chaotic" or randomized versions of Tic-Tac-Toeagainstthe computer or friends either locally or over a network.Tic-Tac-Toe is a "solved" game where most players can alwayscometo a draw. However, what if you have to play your opponent'smarker?You, playing as X, actually place Os on the board, butstill have toget 3 Xs in a row to win? Try a "Reverse" game ofTic-Tac-Toe inthis app.Reverse Tic-Tac-Toe is still fairly straightforward. Howaboutthrowing in some chaos... like the chance to blow upexistingmarkers on the board? In Chaotic style of Tic-Tac-Toe,there is a1/3 chance that you get to play your marker, a 1/3 chancethat youget to play your opponent's marker, and a 1/3 chance toplace abomb on an existing marker. With this ability to explosivelyremovemarkers, games can carry on for much more than 9 moves, andtheoutcome is by no means knowable even just before thewinningmove.Similar to a board game called "Ox Blocks" from the1970s(http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/72672/ox-blocks)
