Platform: Harmattan


Application Description:
The game is an implementation of the Square-It/Dots-Dashed/Squares game you may have played with pencil and paper as a child. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square-it.

The aim is to ’own’ the most squares on the board by drawing lines between adjacent dots.

There are 2 modes of play:
2 players on one phone
2 players over the internet

When playing on one phone, each player takes turns, and the board says whos turn it is.

When playing over the internet, a player cannot make a move if it is not their turn.

To play online, you must set up an account with an email address, any invites you receive will be shown in the ’Existing Internet Games’ dialog.

The game has been completely implemented since the beginning of the coding competition, the first releases being made in September-2012.

As well as the phone client, the work also included a node.js server for handling the internet games.

In the future, clients will be available for as many devices as possible that support Qt, including N900/Symbian/Android and Playbook/BB10
