Author's Description: First Allegro program that I ever coded. It's a sort of boardgame you play against the computer. You move footsoldiers, medics, and a radio operator. I finished it last year or so. The gameplay and balance is pretty darn bad.. but it was a practice program. Writing computer AI to play against you was much harder than I thought.
Play with mouse. Click on green army piece, then the adjacent square you want it to move to. AI can be a bit stupid at times. See readme.txt for more info.
I've stopped making updates to it.
Overall Rating: 7.0
I like programming games, but I tend to get distracted. I hope to someday finish one that's actually entertaining. (View Profile)
