Dots and Boxes in stunning HD with online play!
Boxmaster is a turn based game where players compete to take control of the most boxes on the screen. It's simple enough that young kids can play, yet strategic enough that adults can enjoy a challenging game.
The game was designed from the ground up to take advantage of the iPad's high resolution display and provides a space themed game board complete with explosions and sound effects.
Boxmaster provides a social gaming experience through the use of OpenFeint, with an online multiplayer mode which allows gamers to play against or friends random opponents worldwide. The online multiplayer capabilities add an extra dimension to the original paper game by allowing it to be played over a longer period of time against varied opponents.
Openfeint is also used to provide Online Achievements and Leaderboards, gamers can even post their achievements to facebook and twitter.

- Online Multiplayer support with Push Notifications
- Online Achievements and Scoreboards
- High resolution Space themed graphics
- Universal application allows use on iPad or iPhone
- Child friendly
1 player not exactly challenging
Dev could probably go ahead
And remove the computer opponent option until the can figure out how make it even remotely competitive.
Also, requiring a 1/2 second delay or so between turns would make it so you don't accidentally put down several lines (for several players) in one sloppy finger swipe. Seems kinda obvious, really.
Good game, great with one tweek
This game is a lot of fun with multi player. However, with young players, they tend to drag their fingers drawing many lines at the same time. This would be perfect if you could detect finger drag and only draw the first line. Thanks.
Good game, bad AI
The computer player is horrible, most of the time it doesn't even score more than 4 points. Sometimes it will never take the last move and you just have to quit the game. The game is fine if you play with a real person.
