Inflate - NeiloGD - Mini LD Entry

Simple game idea, nothing amazing from me this time, and also a bit incomplete due to lack of time. I may put a little more work into it over the week. It was an attempt at learning how to use LimeJS, as I've not done anything browser based for an LD/MiniLD yet (except with Flash).

Anyways, you basically inflate the circles with your own colour, and when they explode, they will fill the surrounding ones. Aim is to fill the board with all your own colour.

Corners take 2 turns to fill, edges 3, and any other 4. They will spill vertically and horizontally into neighbouring circles.

There is also a very crude AI opponent! I would have loved to make one more advanced, but it seems to work surprisingly well until you work out a good strategy. Be prepared for some awesome chain reactions and come backs!

Nice! I beat it in 58 seconds! The "AI" is god, but should be harder.

My girlfriend loves it ! Maybe there is potential for casual gaming.
