The game didn\\\'t run without zlib1.dll from http://zlib.net/
Fun game, and very polished. Seems a bit easy once you\\\'ve got the hang of it, though.
Frimkron says ...
Very cool. It took me a few games to really get to grips with how the game worked as the instructions were a little lacking and I think that some of the subtleties of the game rules were still lost on me. The territory borders were a little hard to make out sometimes, especially where the red and green territories were touching - maybe they could be drawn slightly inside the tiles. A way to indicate when a tile can be taken over would be cool as well. The gameplay is deep and strategic and very well thought out. I hope you\'ll consider adding a 2-player mode :)

I'm concerned about your health with the constant ingestion of nothing but toast. But kudos for the bowl of candy. I respect that. I haven't had chocolate in weeks...
I like hexes. I don't know how much the rules work out in practice, mainly because of the random landscape. You either quickly get ahead and surround the enemy and win, or you can't keep up and die. It might be very interesting to see a handmade balanced map (mirror image, towers placed by the mapmaker), and see what kind of strategies and tricks develop then.

AI need improvement and some graphic enhancements for a better overview, other than that its great.
drZool says ...
Lovely! When I got the hang of blocking the opponent it became really fun. As Frimkron says it would have helped with a little more visual guide on what land is whos. Now add music and multiplayer support!
Tenoch says ...
I actually found myself playing new games without realising. As I told you in the IRC can, taking over ennemy crossroads is a lot of fun. The game is quite complete, in fact, since it requires strategy and learning, and not just random clicking.
Endurion says ...
Very polished. Also nice that a game is basically a quick match, but still challenging.
Please make a more complete version (sound!).
nilsf says ...
Really fun game. Like others, I think the borders aren't very clear, perhaps they should be thicker.
Wiering says ...
Nice game, it took me a few plays to get it. The ai could be better (sometimes the computer chooses to start on a tiny island, which makes it very easy). The map seems to continue at the bottom of the screen but doesn't fit. The lines are hard to see sometimes.
Papper says ...
Didn't run, getting some divide by zero error.

Nice work on the hexatile engine ... +tech points. Can't really score the graphics too high if they were placeholder graphics ... no sound ? Worked pretty well ... did require some strategy to beat the AI (I lost the first time, until I understood that it was about encircling and cutting off from resources). You appeared to live almost entirely on toast for 48 hours. Good job !
Codexus says ...
Nice mini-civilization. It takes a few tries to get the game mechanics and then its mostly just about selecting the right place for your tower. Too bad there aren't more elements to keep the game interesting beyond that point.
Deepflame says ...
The game crashes and wont start, even though I have zlib1.dll and everything. :(
wonderwhy-er says ...
Very cool game :) Not too simple and not too complex. Plays fast and very addictive :D I just seriously killed hour of my life :D I don't want to stop but need to continue checking other entries.
Morre says ...
This does look pretty awesome. I'm sorry to report that it doesn't start for me, nor does it give me any sort of useful error message. It just pops up a frame and then crashes. In fact, the only message I did get was from my crash catch tool, and it contains naught but seemingly random memory addresses. And yes, I have the zlib1.dll :/
Thus, I'll judge the journal and food categories and put n/a for the rest. I would have liked to try it though - from the screenshots it was one of the games I was really looking forward to playing!
EDIT: Works on my laptop. It's pretty cool - I couldn't find a way to scroll over the map though, which bothered me - especially since the game's resolution is the same as the one on my laptop screen (would've worked better in fullscreen). Graphics are nice, as is gameplay.
