Rediscover tic-tac-toe with Number Tic-Tac-Toe, desktop and command line game (PPA available)
Max Payne, GTA, Mass Effect, Diablo, etc, are games widely known and appreciated for high-detail stories, complex characters, step-by-step uncovered plots, powerful graphics, etc, basically, bundle of actions that demands both powerful computers and fast user responses, diligent investigation, "global" perception, etc.
Yet, it seems that tens-of-years old games have "survived" and are still enjoyable, taking, in the last years, a road from the physical paper into computers, where, basically, they are playable just as in the physical world, with the "subtle" difference of shifting from pencils to mouse pointers.
Number Tic-Tac-Toe is a simplistic yet exciting game, that presents the spread-around-the-world tic-tac-toe game in a number flavor.
Tic-tac-toe, also known as noughts and crosses and X's and O's, "is a pencil-and-paper game for two players, X and O, who take turns marking the spaces in a 3×3 grid. The X player usually goes first. The player who succeeds in placing three respective marks in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row wins the game", furthermore, the same gaming behavior can be extended with numbers, instead of Xs and 0s.
Number Tic-Tac-Toe features a pleasant interface with properly exposed numbers and position-aware drag&drop actions, items backed by top messages, an enjoyable gaming experience.
The handy game comes with enhanced Unity integration via its enhanced Unity launcher quicklist with
Open a New Game and
Open a New Command Line Game, latter entry that introduces the user to Number Tic-Tac-Toe's second gaming mode (via the terminal).
After the command line flavor is launched, the user must choose the playing mode (
Human vs Human,
Human vs Computer), action followed by the actual game playing by introducing number via coordinates (such as
A2 2), command line game playable simultaneously with its desktop version.
