Projects / Gamazons


Gamazons is a game played on a 10x10 chess board. Each side has four pieces (amazons) that move like chess queens (in a straight line in any direction). Instead of capturing pieces like in chess, the game is determined based on who moves last. Each move consists of two parts. First an amazon moves to a new square and then fires an arrow to another square (the arrow is fired in a straight line in any direction from the square the amazon landed on). The square the arrow lands on becomes a permanent block for the rest of the game. No one can move over it, or fire an arrow over it. Every turn an amazon must move and fire an arrow, so every turn there is one less square available on the board. Try to block in your opponent, or section off a good chunk of the board for yourself.

Release Notes: The board state machine has been redesigned to make things more maintainable. A couple dozen bugs were squished, and a great effort was made to make the game more polished overall. If you had any problems before, this should fix them.

The status bar has been enabled, so you know what the game is doing and what it expects next. A help menu has been created that probably tells you more than you ever wanted to know about each widget. An Undo button has been added. The grid layout has been labeled in preparation for storing move history.
